The Whisper Man | Alex North
post image

If you leave the door half-open, soon you‘ll hear the whispers spoken. This was the disturbing story of “The Whisper Man” who over 20 years kidnapped and murdered 5 boys. Fast forward to present day and The Whisper Man is in prison yet children are disappearing. If you‘re into reading thrillers, I highly recommend this one! Plus I‘ve heard it‘s going to be a movie!!!! thank you @celadonbooks for the ARC!

Suelizbeth Loved this book!! There is so much more to it than just “thriller“. It is well written and engaging. 😻 3w

How far would you go to protect the ones you love? A Nearly Normal Family is a legal thriller that tests a Father‘s faith, daughter‘s loyalty and a mother‘s ethics. Eighteen year old Stella is accused of brutally murdering a 32 year old man which puts tests, Stella‘s parents and friends moral compasses to the test.
Thank you @celadonbooks for an Advance Release Copy. #ANearlyNormalFamily #celadonbooks

This book is a very well written view at a family‘s past mistakes and betrayals that ripple throughout generations. It examines not just a privileged American family, but a privileged America.

“I‘ll love you forever in darkness and sun, I‘ll love you past when my whole sweet life is done.”

This is one of those books that should come with a forewarning that tissues will be needed 😭
