The Whisper Man | Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I loved The Shadows by Alex North so much! When it referenced this book. I knew I needed to have The Whisper Man! This book gave me a whirlwind of emotions, from the father and son relationship, moving, and losing a loved one. You know, the general set up for anything scary. At some points in this book, I really got the chills! It was so eerie, and the little boy freaks me out. This has been one of my favorite October reads, and I am so excited to talk about this book; and I’ll do my best to keep it spoiler free! 


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..


This book gave me the creeps! I love the way Alex writes are creates his worlds. I really wasn’t sure if there really were ghosts or if everything was happening because of people. We get a couple different types of monsters in The Whisper Man. We have the things the whispers are coming from and what Jake is talking to. Both mess with Tom’s head, as well as mine! I didn’t know where the book was going to go. I enjoyed that fact we see them from so many points of view, but we don’t really miss out on any details. Also, the twist is so good!


I don’t have to many bad things to say about this book. The only thing I would c=change in the book would probably just chapter heads so I know who I was reading as to make al little less confusion.

I highly recommend this book! It will leave you with the creeps for Halloween, If you have read this book let me know your thoughts down below!

Meet Kira Frey

Kira Frey is a sort of a popular girl but is also overlooked by many. She is known for throwing parties and drinking a lot.

Chase Stout

Chase may just be my favorite character in the book! he has not had an easy life and has a pretty dark side.

Meet Molly

Meet Molly! I am so excited to introduce the first character of Ceaderwood! Molly is one of the characters that we will get the story through.
