The biggest new thriller of the year - pre-order the paperback now

"The best crime novel of the decade" Steve Cavanagh

You'll hear the whispers. And then you'll hear the screams...

Still devastated after the loss of his wife, Tom Kennedy and his young son Jake move to the sleepy village of Featherbank, looking for a fresh start.

But Featherbank has a dark past. Fifteen years ago a twisted serial killer abducted and murdered five young boys. Until he was finally caught, the killer was known as 'The Whisper Man'.

Of course, an old crime need not trouble Tom and Jake as they try to settle in to their new home. Except that now another boy has gone missing. And then Jake begins acting strangely.

He says he hears a whispering at his window...



"Terrifying and utterly heartbreaking" Mark Billingham

"A dark, creepy, thriller with a huge amount of heart" Stuart MacBride

"Beautifully written. Beautifully plotted. Shades of Thomas Harris and Stephen King but brilliant in its own right" C. J. Tudor

"A tremendous calling card for the brilliant Alex North" Mick Herron

Review:

A gripping exploration of father-son relationships with a propulsive plot, The Whisper Man is a true skin-crawler (Guardian)

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)

About the Author:

Alex North was born in Leeds, where he now lives with his wife and son. He studied Philosophy at Leeds University, and prior to becoming a writer he worked there in their sociology department.
