A new beginning, a new house, a new town. Featherbank.

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..

 

 

Reviews and What Readers Say

 

"Beautifully crafted, heart-rending and spine-tinglingly chilling, The Whisper Man is a thrilling tour de force.”

Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

 

“ A terrifying page-turner with the complexities of fatherhood at its core.”

Kirkus Reviews

 

 

“ A powerful and scary story that will haunt readers long after the final page is turned.”

―Library Journal

 

“ The Whisper Man is the most unsettling thriller I have read since Jo Nesbø'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
