The Whisper Man
The Whisper Man | Alex North
In his debut psychological thriller, Alex North weaves a multi-generational tale of suspense, as a father and son are 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 is a creepy mix of crime-thriller and paranormal spookiness. I‘d recommend it to anyone who enjoys James Patterson, Joe Hill or Dean Koontz books.

Grieving, recent widowed dad, Tom Kennedy, learns to navigate loss while protecting his son from the evilest of forces. The Whisper Man is spooky and is hard to put down. #thriller #horror #paranormal

The last thriller I read was so awful, that I had to read another one to get the bad taste out of my brain. 😂

Hopefully this one lives up to the hype. 🤞

So many amazing books have been published this summer. Let‘s talk about the ones we are especially excited about! You can see my picks here: https://youtu.be/PDvf16jCb2A

#booktuber #summerreading #tbr #toberead #goodbooks

EadieB @Butterflyamore Interesting video! The books I‘m putting on my TBR: The Doll Factory, Stolen Things and Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe. I have read about 40% of Recursion but don‘t know what to think of it. Probably have to wait until the ending before I decide. I have a NetGalley to read by Mary Kubrica called The Other Mrs which I am looking forward too. I have loved all her other books. Have you read her? If not, you would like her! 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore also looking forward to reading from NetGalley: Playing Dead (from your last video) and What You Did by Claire McGowan - love her books too! Also looking forward to What Rose Forgot by Nevada Barr from NetGalley too and 2 true crime books about Ted Bundy and The Yorkshire Ripper which are from NetGalley. (edited) 2d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I‘ve only read The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, which I enjoyed, so I‘m sure I‘ll read more by her soon! I‘m glad you‘re adding those to your TBR. They sound so good! 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore Yes thanks for the good tips! 2d

There were a couple of interesting twists that I did not see coming. Even though everyone appears non related, there are strange connections between some of the characters. Everything felt believable and I didn't feel like anything was forced. The book was interesting and towards the end I couldn't put it down. I liked the ending. Both the main ending and the little epilogue.

Okay so...I started out being scared to read this book...in face the first part scared me so bad that I tried to convince my husband to switch sides in bed so I wouldn‘t have to sleep next to the window.

But then...the book got predictable. I figured everything out and was a little disappointed. I was ready to be scared out of my wits so that I wouldn‘t sleep for a couple days.

Wow!  This was so creepy and well written.  I really enjoyed it.  There were some points I found really scary, but I loved it!  Definitely one of the best thrillers I‘ve read.  I definitely don‘t recommend reading it in bed at night with your windows open, but I definitely recommend reading it!   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been looking forward to reading this one for months... and I‘m happy to report that it did not disappoint! This book was amazing... disturbing and suspenseful... but utterly amazing! The writing was superb, the characters were very realistic and well-developed, and the plot moved along at a fast page-turning pace. Five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can‘t wait to see what else Mr. North has up his sleeve!

I was really hoping this was going to be better. I'd heard so much about how it was creepy and exciting. It wasn't creepy for me and it didn't get exciting until the last 20% of the book. On the plus side, I wasn't able to guess who the bad guy was.

What books have you enjoyed the most so far this summer?

A Curse So Dark and Lonely and The Whisper Man were definitely my top favorites but enjoyed the others pictured here as well. I hope to have more to add to my stack before summer officially comes to an end.

I forgot to include my reread of Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland. 😬

Ruthiella Bunny by Mona Awad was probably my favorite book this summer. But as you point out...there‘s still time!😀 2w

Unpopular opinion time! This was only okay. There were some spooky elements, but overall I found it to be highly predictable and uneven. Some plot developments didn‘t make a lot of sense, or were overly manipulative. The writing itself felt disjointed. Hopping from first to third person narratives can sometimes work, but it didn‘t for me here. Clearly some people love it, but for me it was a pile o‘ meh. #BotM

lele1432 Oh shoot! I got this as one of my picks lol. I'm leery of shifting perspectives as well. Hope I like it better lol 2w

KatieDid927 @Mowen036 Yeeeeeep. The only thing I didn‘t see coming what who Tom‘s dad was then I felt silly for not seeing it. I knew Frank‘s son was the new killer the second I found out he had one. The fact that the cops didn‘t investigate that from the get-go is a HUGE plot hole. 5d
Mowen036 @KatieDid927 yup! So many plot holes. I didn‘t see the whole toms dad coming. It was like almost unneeded because a lot of the plot points weren‘t resolved. 5d

5️⃣⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tom Kennedy relocates with his son Jake to start a new life in Featherbanks after his wife passes away.

Frank Carter also known as The Whisper Man was arrested after committing 5 murders.

Neil Spencer a 6 year old boy comes up missing and his parents say he was talking about somebody whispering to him. But the whisper man has been in prison for years so who is this "new whisper man."

mandi1082 I enjoyed this read from the beginning to the end. I loved reading from Jake's point of view. Some of it was creepy and it was entertaining. I liked the father and son relationship and even after the death of his wife and feeling helpless on how to raise his son he was trying. A must read!!! 2w

1. This is a harder question for me than it should be, but I guess I‘d land on indoor because I like the outdoors but can be picky about it.
2. Unsweetened iced tea
3. Moorland in England. Or just England, period. Still have never been.
4. Gray and blue.
5. Yes, I remembered which pair I chose this morning! 😂

My current #BOTM choice turned out to be very good. It had some really creepy moments that actually gave me chills. There were also some very tense moments. I liked that there were some twists and turns where things did not turn out like I expected. Overall, a good book.

It is a cracking good suspense thriller "He says he hears a whispering at the window....
Creepy and heartbreaking multi generational tale about fathers and sons. Slow burn of a novel which stays with you.

Shhh did you hear that? I thought I heard a whisper at the window.
