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 (Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of Thirteen)
Alex North has achieved the seemingly impossible. The Whisper Man is a thriller that is both terrifying and utterly heartbreaking. Mesmerising and masterful. (Mark Billingham)
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. J. Finn, no.1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Window)
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. (Ali Land, Sunday Times bestselling author of Good Me, Bad Me)
Beautifully written. Beautifully plotted. Shades of Thomas Harris and Stephen King but brilliant in its own right (C. J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man)
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)
You might think you've read too many of these "next generation serial killer" novels but this is a very good example with strong characters and a palpable sense of sadness behind the scariness (Sunday Express)
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

I also understand this is a debut author so that's even more outstanding.
The main focus of this story was Tom Kennedy and his son Jake.
After the death of his wife Tom now a single parent moves his young son into the town of featherbank for a fresh start.
twenty years previous Frank Carter had terrorised this area abducting and murdering young boys he was monikered the whisper man.
now a new little boy is missing and policeman Pete Willis who handled the previous case back in the day is pulled back into the current ongoing investigation.
So this was told in dual POV Tom and Pete.
It was full of twists and turns a cleverly woven mystery that was hard to put down.
Part police procedural, supernatural and Crime Thriller this was in a class all of its own.
I especially liked the way this combined the riveting and at times eerie storyline with the everydays of normal life and the deeper issues of addiction and how this can affect the family.
The way this cleverly manages to weave all the loose threads into a coherent end-game just outstanding.
This was for me a five star read all the way.
I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Whisper Man.
