"POIGNANT AND TERRIFYING"
Entertainment Weekly

In this dark, suspenseful thriller, Alex North weaves a multi-generational tale of a father and son caught in the crosshairs of an investigation to catch a serial killer preying on a small town.

After the sudden death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning, a new house, a new town. Featherbank.

But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted and murdered five residents. Until Frank Carter was finally caught, he was nicknamed "The Whisper Man," for he would lure his victims out by whispering at their windows at night.

Just as Tom and Jake settle into their new home, a young boy vanishes. His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter's crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to revisit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man.

And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window...

The Whisper Man

I absolutely loved this book; part fantasy and part gritty reality. The story was so real in how it dealt with family relationships. I hated reading the last page; I wanted more.

Best thriller I’ve read

I finished this book in two days because it was impossible to put down. It was incredibly clever to change the tone of the narrator between each chapter— especially the chapters focused on Jake’s thoughts and feelings. This book is full of suspense, and just when you think you’ve figured it out, you turn the page, and more surprises are revealed.
