I have been looking forward to reading The Whisper Man by Alex North for months... and I’m happy to report that it did not disappoint! This book was amazing... disturbing and suspenseful... but utterly amazing! The writing was superb, the characters were very realistic and well-developed, and the plot moved along at a fast page-turning pace. And as with any thriller, there was a plot/character twist but I guarantee that you won’t see it coming or be able to figure out “whodunnit.”

I don’t get scared easily but I love to psych myself out and I was able to do so from the very first page of this book. The opening page included this creepy passage:

“It’s not going to be easy, and I need to start with an apology. Because over the years I’ve told you many times that there’s no such thing as monsters.

I’m sorry that I lied.”

This book has been classified as Horror, but it isn’t really horror in the classic sense. It’s more of a psychological thriller with a touch of horror. At the same time, it’s better than most typical psychological thrillers out there.

Five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can’t wait to see what else Mr. North has up his sleeve!
