In this dark, suspenseful thriller, Alex North weaves a multi-generational tale of a father and son caught in the crosshairs of an investigation to catch a serial killer preying on a small town. 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...

What fascinates me the most is that this book is just as mysterious as the author who wrote it! Alex North is a pseudonym, but the true identity of the author remains anonymous, making this book even more intriguing! Beyond that though, the story itself was a great thriller with a lot of action, realistic characters, and tons of suspense to keep you glued.

Love books to film? You’re in luck too! Film rights have officially been optioned, and a second (stand-alone) book by “Alex North” will be published in the near future too. Anyone else excited??
This anonymous author has some serious talent and I look forward to see what else is in store for us.
