The Whisper Man (Large Print / Library Binding)
Tom makes the decision to move to a new town with his young son Jake to start fresh after the death of his wife. It seems better until a young boy Jake’s age disappears in a very similar way to a serial killer’s crimes who, 20 years ago, would whisper to children but he has been in jail. Has someone been helping the whisper man all along or is a brand-new criminal out there? Soon things get worse when Jake starts acting weird and hearing whispers. This is a page turner filled with twists and turns you won’t see coming!— Lauren

“A creepy, sinister, can’t-put-it-down story of a town that survives and then relives the crimes of a child serial killer. For those who love psychological thrillers (with the absence of gore but plenty of plot twists and turns), The Whisper Man is a grand ride into the minds of those who kill and those who are victims. You’ll find yourself looking over your shoulder when reading this book. Don’t stand too close to an open window...”

After the death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning in 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 had an accomplice. And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window.
