    Crime with a twist of horror

    When Tom and his son Jake move to Featherbank they think it will be a new and fresh start, but when the whispers start and a boy goes missing, are they truly safe? The Whisper Man really surprised me (in a good way!) I was expecting a somewhat standard if well written abduction crime thriller and what I got was a fantastic read that delved into horror and the supernatural at times as well. None of these felt unrealistic as part of the narrative, there were some parts of it that really got me making sure the doors were locked and the lights were on after reading! I liked how the chapters bounced between perspectives – from perpetrator, detective, victim, father and son with a mix of third and first person narration as well to make it easy to tell whose story you were reading. You got enough chapters in a perspective to really feel like you got to know some of the key players but also enough was held back to keep secrets and still allow for twists which is quite a tricky thing to balance from other books that I have read. The plot is well constructed and paced to leave you wanting to read more – I finished it in a day as I was so hooked! I also liked that Alex North is not afraid to pull punches with his plot developments. You truly didn’t know what was going to happen next. This did not feel like a debut at all and I shall certainly be on the lookout for more of North’s work in future! Overall The Whisper Man is a great crime thriller with a horror twist that leaves you captivated and guessing at every turn. Thank you to NetGalley & Penguin UK – Michael Joseph for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Tom Kennedy and his seven-year-old son Jake move to the little village of Featherbank, hoping for a new start after the death of Jake’s Mum and Tom’s wife Rebecca who was discovered dead at the bottom of the stairs in their family home. Ever since Jake had to be carried up the stairs refusing to step where his mother had died. The village of Featherbank might have looked like an ideal place to restart their lives. A small community with a village school Jake could settle into. However, the place has a dark past. Fifteen-years ago five little boys were kidnapped and murdered by serial killer Frank Carter. Their bodies all found in the same way except one, the last victim Tony Smith, whose body was never discovered. Leading the investigation was DI Pete Willis, who until this day is haunted by the boy’s deaths and the manner in which they were discovered. He was also the man to bring the killer to justice. Frank Carter has been in prison for the last fifteen years. He enjoys the attention and the name given to him ‘The Whisper Man’. He thrives in prison and taunts Pete Willis still all these years later. In the present day, a young six-year-old boy has gone missing. DI Amanda Beck is in charge of the team trying to find the little boy but two months on and there has been no sight of him. Pete Willis is brought into the investigation after the little boy’s mum informs the police that he had told her about a man whispering to him outside his bedroom window at night. The same method that Frank Carter did to his victims before he abducted them. Could Frank of had an accomplice who was never found, or is this the work of someone coping Franks every move and wanting to strike fear into the residents of Featherbank once again? The Whisper Man is a creepy, edge of your seat read. Tom and Jake are both going through a hard time trying to deal with their grief. Tom is an author who is struggling to write. He’s also struggling to connect with his son who has started talking to people who are not really there, or are they? Jake is a young boy who feels like a loner. He has no friends except the little girl that no-one else seems to be able to see, but Jake is adamant she is real. She tells him things that Jake alone wouldn’t know. However, she isn’t the only person Jake starts to see. He sees a little boy too and also hears a man whispering to him. DI Pete Willis is a man that has never gotten over the case of Frank Carter. He puts pressure on himself after he failed to find the body of the last boy murdered by Frank and visits Frank in prison hoping that one day he would slip up and tell him something that would help find Tony. Now the nightmare is starting all over again with another abduction of a little boy. The book is told in the third person and from the POV of Tom, Pete, Jake and at times the new killer too. This is a book that will play with your mind. Can you imagine someone whispering to your children of a night-time, telling them to do things? Someone shimming up the drainpipe and talking to them directly outside their window? Well, that’s what the Whisper Man does. There are also some supernatural elements to the story too, including the little girl who may or may not be real but she certainly knows things and sees things and tells them to Jake, she also helps him too. Couple this with the fact that the family has moved into a house the villagers call ‘The Scary House’ and you just might find it difficult to sleep after reading this book. If you love thrillers then this is one to definitely pick up. It is written in six parts which are all compelling, impressive and will make you feel out of breath as you race through them.
