Mystery | Thriller | Suspense
The Whisper Man by Alex North is a fantastic debut from the author, and I cannot wait to read his next novel which releases in July. This book is dark, chilling, and has a hint of the paranormal. There were moments when I was getting nervous because some of the scenes in the book are very creepy, but also moments that I wanted the story to just “get on with it”. I think that’s the biggest drawback for this book: how slowly everything comes to fruition. No matter what though this is a solid read and is going to be the perfect book for those who like creepy thrillers!
The title is scary right? When I first saw this book, I thought to myself “woah, this is going to be a horror novel that will chill me to the bones.” However, it’s NOT horror, but is instead, an insidious murder mystery the involves a serial killer who goes after children by whispering to them through their bedroom windows **shivers**. This whisper man was caught and what ensues is a cat and mouse game between detectives, a local father whose son goes missing, and a copycat killer. This book is told in dual point of views through these characters, and (as I mentioned above) has a tiny bit of paranormal thrown throughout. While I wish the paranormal element was discussed more towards the end (I understood it but wanted a little bit more in terms of where it went after the final throwdown), I found it to add an element of surprise and satisfaction to an already creepy story. Ohhh it was just so good!
With a few minor issues (for me as a reader), this is a piece of fiction gold! I’m truly shocked that this is the authors debut novel because it’s written so well! One would think that the author had multiple books under his name because of how GOOD this one is written!
In any event, I truly enjoyed this one and am so excited to see what Alex North brings to his readers next! I have a feeling his books will be on my auto buy list in the coming future! Highly recommended!
