"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. 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." --Amazon.com.… (mere)

This was pretty awesome...until it wasn’t. I can’t quite put my finger on exactly what it was that made me feel that way.
Well written and a high creepiness factor, I just wasn’t as impressed or scared as some readers appear to be. Although I predict great things from Alex North, this debut novel was just shy of exceptional for me.
But then I’ve never been published so who am I to say? ( )

One of the best audiobooks I listened to this year. I don't usually love mysteries, and this was can't put it down, sit up late at night to finish a chapter, recommend to every friend good. If LT offered a 6th star, this book would get it. ( )

A Good One!

Well my daughter did it again. She picked out The Whisper Man as a gift for me, and it was such an enjoyable read! It’s sort of strange to say that given the subject matter of the book is child abduction and the serial murders of children (no, that’s not a spoiler). It did take me a few chapters to get used to the switching from first to third person, but by the last quarter of the novel everything had come together perfectly. I had never read Alex North before and but there were enough “mate”s in the book along with a few other hints, to guess the author hails from down under. Aside from this, the story could have been set anywhere. The book is more than just a typical serial killer thriller. It explores the father-son relationship from several different angles and generations. In the end this exploration was well developed and satisfying. I think I’ll give Alex North another spin soon!

An excellent read. So gripping and tense. No hesitation in recommending this book. It's 5 star all the way ( )
