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...

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!

collegecatlady I can‘t wait to get my hands on a copy of this! Love your review! 1d

I‘m ready for this book to be less popular because every time I see it, I get the Ying Yang Twins singing Wait in my head. The GRAPHIC version. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Fair warning if you watch it on YouTube!

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!😀 7d

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

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!!! 1w

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.

I'm not sure whether I'll like either of these to be honest, but they're also different from something I'd normally pick up. I'm excited to read them soon. 📚

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.

Of course this shows up in the mail on the day I worked 10 hours plus had two hours of commute time 😭 I‘m so tired. But I very much want to get this started! Has anyone else read it? Are you loving it?!

Stephuhhnieee @WhatWouldJaneDo Awesome! Not being able to put it down is the best!! Scary? Like lights on while reading? 😂 I‘m a wimp but love a thrill... Sleep is required since tomorrow is another busy day; but luckily the weekend is almost here! 2w
