"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."
The Whisper Man is a standalone mystery thriller by Alex North.
In all honesty, I don't remember much about this book...which probably says enough.
I do remember that my audiobook skipped chapters, so I ended up missing a good chunk of the book. The sad part was that accidently missing some chapters didn't even make a difference for me. By the time it got to the end, I was just plain confused for a second because the author chose to shift perspectives all of a sudden.
What I did like is that the author was good at writing atmosphere. You could feel the tension surrounding the unknown.
However, it is kind of hard to recommend this when I have forgotten pretty much everything about the plot...
