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 enjoyed this dark, a little bit twisty thriller. It has been getting a lot hype for months now and I was excited to see what it was all about. I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as some. It is definitely a good read, but due to the hype I think I was expecting a bit more. What can you do!? Sometimes these things happen when books get a lot of hype.
This book was more of a police procedural than I was expecting. From the reviews I saw I was expecting something so creepy it would keep me up at night. My favorite characters were Tom and Jake, father and son who are just trying to make it work after Jake’s mom passes away. My heart really went out to them!
This is a good, solid read. I am impressed that this is Alex North’s debut novel and I look forward to reading more!
