A police procedural with supernatural overtones, Guardian, Best Crime & Thrillers of the Year
Creepy. With the movie rights sold to Hollywood, Alfred Hitchcock would have loved every spine-tingling moment, Daily Mail
The best crime novel of the decade
Alex North has achieved the seemingly impossible. The Whisper Man is a thriller that is both terrifying and utterly heartbreaking. Mesmerising and masterful.
First it's spooky. Then it's scary. Then it's terrifying. And then... well, dear reader, proceed at your own risk. An ambitious, deeply satisfying thriller - a seamless blend of Harlan Coben, Stephen King, and Thomas Harris. My flesh is still crawling
A police procedural with supernatural overtones, this is a true skin-crawler, Guardian, Best Summer Reads
The Whisper Man is going to be huge. Dark enough to chill your blood but so beautifully written you will not be able to put it down. Utterly brilliant.
Beautifully written. Beautifully plotted. Shades of Thomas Harris and Stephen King but brilliant in its own right
An ultra-creepy tinge of the supernatural, blended with a petrifying threat from all-too-human monsters, conjures truly blood-chilling menace. Built on a tender theme, this flawlessly plotted thriller absolutely deserves to be shouted about, Sunday Mirror --This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
From the Publisher
Praise for The Whisper Man
A novel about the dark places that are recognisably our own, The Whisper Man plays on our emotions as much as on our fears. A tremendous calling card for the brilliant Alex North.
Fantastic. He writes beautifully, with a powerful understanding of the effects of loss and damage on the human psyche and a style that sweeps you into its grip and never lets go. I'm totally sold on Alex North
A fine, chilling tale. Alex North paints a world that is so believable and at the same time utterly terrifying. The characters are beautifully rendered, and the tenderness of the central relationship between father and son deepened the sense of terror
Compelling, creepy and beautifully written, The Whisper Man will stay with you long after the last page is turned - and make you double-check all your doors and windows are locked at night

Soon after Tom and Jake move into Featherbank, another boy goes missing and the whispers start again.
I loved this plot, it had me hooked with the tension and the twists and turns, I couldn't put it down until I knew everything.
It is written in the third person point of view, except for Tom who tells the story from first person. I guess because he drives the story forward and it works this way.
Little Jake, however, stole the show for me. This is a brilliant piece of writing from a child's perspective.
I also loved DI Pete Willis who caught the original killer at a huge emotional cost to himself.
This book is not just a scary, creepy story, it also explores the themes of father-son relationships, grief, and loss.
A great compelling plot with plenty of cliff hangers and twists and turns.
A great read and will make a brilliant film.
In truth it moves at a cracking pace, and the split narrative works better than in some other novels I've read of late.
Sadly, there's a 'but'. There really is no cliche left unturned, the identity of the killer isn't the revelation the author thinks it is and, as is the case in so many crime novels, there are some truly ludicrous coincidences that simply don't hang together.
All in all a curate's egg.
None compare to Sharon Bolton’s craftsman !
Whatever happened to originality ?
