«WORKS BEAUTIFULLY… If you like being terrified, The Whisper Man has your name on it.”
The New York Times, Editor's Pick
Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review
“BRILLIANT… will satisfy readers of Thomas Harris and Stephen King.”
Booklist, Starred Review
In this dark, suspenseful thriller, Alex North weaves a multi-generational tale of a father and son caught in the crosshairs of an investigation to catch a serial killer preying on a small town.
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. Featherbank.
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…

—Joe and Anthony Russo
Early Praise for The Whisper Man:
«The Whisper Man is the most unsettling thriller I have read since Jo Nesbø's The Snowman. Much more than the sum of its parts, it is nightmarish and disturbing and, at the same time, a moving and life-affirming novel about fathers and sons, and grief, loss, and recovery.
—Alex Michaelides, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Silent Patient
“Brilliant…an affirmation of the power of the father-son relationship…will satisfy readers of Thomas Harris and Stephen King.”
Booklist, Starred Review
“A terrifying page-turner with the complexities of fatherhood at its core.”
Kirkus Reviews
“A powerful and scary story that will haunt readers long after the final page is turned.”
Library Journal
«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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
“Get ready to be unnerved. This novel is thrilling.”
—Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Beautifully written. Beautifully plotted.”
—C.J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man
«Beautifully crafted, heart-rending and spine-tinglingly chilling, The Whisper Man is a thrilling tour de force.”
—Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes
“The best crime novel of the decade.”
—Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of The Defense

The abduction of a child by a stranger is every parent’s worst nightmare. But statistically it is a highly unusual event. Children are actually most at risk of harm and abuse from a family member behind closed doors, and while the outside world might seem threatening, the truth is that most strangers are decent people, whereas the home can be the most dangerous place of all.

Pete was the one who’d closed the area’s biggest case in the last fifty years, and yet Lyons was the one who’d ended up in charge. In different ways, the investigation they were circling was uncomfortable for both of them

It’s not going to be easy, and I need to start with an apology. Because over the years I’ve told you many times that there’s no such thing as monsters.

I’m sorry that I lied.
