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... Praise for The Whisper Man: "The Whisper Man is the most unsettling thriller I have read since Jo Nesbo’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 “There’s a soft voice outside your window and it demands your attention. The Whisper Man is coming. In fact, he’s already here. 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
Alex North weaves a stunningly captivating narrative that’s a nuanced and grounded exploration of father-son relationships...a master class in genre exploration. An incredible read. Joe and Anthony Russo
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
Reader Eccleston has a strong but easily understood English accent that adds flavor to the tale. He reads with a fervor that gives the story a strong sense of suspense. Interestingly, he varies his tone only slightly as he reads the characters' dialogue, but so much of the tale is the finely scripted narrative hovering around Willis and Kennedy that it still succeeds in keeping the listeners rapt. Booklist
Narrator Christopher Eccleston builds suspense while leaving much to the imagination of the listener. Library Journal
“Poignant and terrifying.” Entertainment Weekly
“Brilliant…an affirmation of the power of the father-son relationship…will satisfy readers of Thomas Harris and Stephen King.” Booklist (starred review)
“A powerful and scary story that will haunt readers long after the final page is turned.” Library Journal
