If you leave a door half open, soon you’ll hear the whispers spoken . . . If you’re lonely, sad, and blue, the Whisper Man will come for you.
Tom Kennedy is a recent widower and decides to move to a new town with his young son, Jake, for a new beginning. The town he’s chosen to move to is Featherbank and unbeknownst to Tom, Featherbank has quite a dark past. Twenty years ago a serial killer kidnapped and murdered five young boys. Frank Carter was eventually caught and was given the nickname The Whisper Man because he would whisper outside the windows of his victims at night in order to lore them from their homes.
At the time Tom and Jake move into their new home, a boy vanishes and his disappearance bears unnerving similarities to Frank Carter’s crimes. Pete Willis was a Detective on the Frank Carter case and he’s now brought in to assist Detective Amanda Beck in the search for the missing boy.
Jake has told his father that he has heard whispering outside of his window and begins to demonstrate some disturbing behavior. Is the Whisper Man really back and is Jake possibly one of his next victims?
This book definitely gave me creepy feels! For me, the suspensefulness wasn’t consistent throughout the book. With that being said, however, I really did enjoy the book and ended up rating it 4/5 stars.
