IF YOU LEAVE A DOOR HALF OPEN, SOON YOU'LL HEAR THE WHISPERS SPOKEN...
Still grieving for wife and mother, Tom and Jake Kennedy move to Featherbank to make a new start. But this sleepy village has a nasty past. Fifteen years ago a serial killer known as "The Whisper Man" abducted and killed five boys before being caught.
As Tom and Jake settle in to their new home another boy has gone missing, and then Jake begins to behave strangely. He hears a whispering at the window.
This book is the creepiest I have read for a very long time. If work and sleep hadn't interrupted, I would have read this in one sitting. I was pleasantly surprised at how brilliantly written this was for a debut novel. North expertly weaves tension and suspense through a story that is both terrifying and mesmerizing, not one to read late at night. There are so many threads in this book it is hard to review without giving away too much, but all I can say is PLEASE read and enjoy the uneasiness and suspense it brings.
