The Whisper Man Book Review

Summary: Tom Kennedy thinks that he and his son need and deserve a fresh start after his wife’s passing so he moves them to Featherbank. Unfortunately Tom doesn’t know about the dark past that this town has, 20 years ago a serial killer abducted and murdered five children. Just as Tom and Jake are settling into their new house and neighborhood, another child vanishes. Amanda Beck and Pete WIllis are instantly put onto this case since it resembles the crimes of 20 years ago. Tom is far from this case until Jake starts hearing whispers at his window. Will Jake fall into the same fate as all those other abducted children?

Thoughts: I don’t read adult fiction much because I never can follow the storyline but I gave this a try since thrillers are right up my alley. I was very pleased with this book and the way that events slowly unfold through the whole story.

Something that I liked was seeing this story told in different perspectives. I liked the fact that this story switched between first person and third person depending on which character you were seeing the story from. I thought that this was a great addition because I grew attached to so many of the characters this way. You get to see all of their personalities through their perspectives and I loved that Jake’s view was also included in all of this.

Something else that I enjoyed were all the twists and turns that the story took you through. I actually saw none of those things coming and I didn’t know who was behind anything until the characters in the book found out. I loved learning alongside them and actually felt bad when things happened to the characters. I was scared along with Jake, worried with Tom, and felt for Pete each time he failed.

I recommend this to those of you who enjoy thrillers and who are looking for a good spooky story to read this fall.

You can get this book at Barnes and Noble or look for it at your local library.
