I checked the book out at the library after keeping it on my ‘to be read’ pile for a few months, and even though I usually don’t go out and buy the books I’ve read and enjoyed, this is one that stays on my list to be added to my home collection.
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!! AMAZING!!
Read it! Love it!

Book review: The Whisper Man by Alex North #bookreview #thewhisperman #alexnorth #thrillerbooks #booktwt #bookaddict #booktwitterTweet

Plot from GoodReads:
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…
This book is full of creepy and insanely paranoid moments. I was lucky that the first evening I started reading I didn’t reach any of the parts that would’ve kept me awake throughout the night. I did finish the book the next morning, in daylight, and let’s just say – it was safer that way.
The plot was fantastic.
The characters were fantastic.
The twists and turns were fantastic.
There was a link with everything! The reveals came through in patches as the story progressed but it was due to brilliant writing and strategically planning out this novel that made the book one hell of a rollercoaster ride.
The book has a constant fast pace and there’s just no time to look away, it’s attention grabbing and intoxicating.
The Whisper Man interactions in the book with some of the characters had to be the best times for sending my spine through chills because the scenes were terrifying and I had to remind myself a couple of times – yes, all the doors and the windows are securely closed even after I was done reading.
The antagonist in this book is probably one of the scariest, heart-palpitation characters I’ve come across in the literary world and one I won’t easily forget. You have to read the book to understand the psychotic nature of the character and see for yourself why you won’t easily sleep at night again.
Alex North, you have a made me a fan of your writing and the way your mind works. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of your books in the coming future!
The book has a rating of 4.04 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
