In this dark suspenseful thriller Alex North weaves a multi generational tale of a father and son caught in the crosshairs of an investigation to catch a serial killer preying on a small townAfter the sudden death of his wife Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal A new beginning a new house a new town F. 3 starsThe experience of reading this book is like falling asleep in the passenger seat of a car and startling awake with a shuddering jolt of fear a cold window pressing hard against your cheek a cool prickle at the base of your neck an unfamiliar impenetrable darkness outside and the wrongness of it all hanging in the air like the sour clang of a bell Where are you Here trapped in a book with unknowable terrors moving in subtly like dark air before a thunderstorm And all of them are dogging Tom Kennedy s heels Tom s life had bent to a wretched avenue when his wife died and he sunk to the darkest depths of a scattered aimless mourning It was grief on top of deep weariness and he feared he would snap like bowstrings But his son s Jake s face would not let the threads unwound Their relationship was like a flag fragile on the wind and they merely maneuvered around each other every day as if the other were an awkward lamp or a misplaced vase Clawing desperately at a fresh start Tom moves with his son into the small town of Featherbank but they re soon lunged into a slow mo nightmare Featherbank s past seems to have stored up violence like a battery and when a boy goes missing it comes surging back with vengeance An ominous song that the townsfolk traded like coin spoke of The Whisper Man Featherbank s most notorious serial killer who lured his young victims away from their homes by whispering at their windows But Frank Carter is locked away in prison detective Peter Willis made sure of that though rumors of him having had an accomplice were never put to bedWhen Jake starts acting strangely Tom can t escape the feeling of having always been on a collision course with this place and this monster That old rage rises in Tom the one that swore it would burn down the world before he let any harm come to his son If you leave a door half open soon you ll hear the whispers spokenIf you play outside alone soon you won t be going homeIf your window s left unlatched you ll hear him tapping at the glassIf you re lonely sad and blue the Whisper Man will come for you North s uncluttered crisp prose helps push the narrative at a brisk pace and though the mechanics of the plot sometimes seem to grind and stall and the final reveal does not pack as much rattling energy as one would hope the emotional terrain of the book remains clear and compelling I was fully invested and never bored I became acutely aware with every page turn of a uietly encroaching eventuality and it made me want to scuttle under the covers like a frightened suid a strange darkening slinking slowly forward like a cat across the lawn as the novel marches with cool classical inevitability toward its terrible conclusion If you re paying attention you may figure out who the monster is the clues are there all along and the author puts them together in a clever wayThe torn open stomach of parenthood and the anxieties that abound within it have been fodder for fiction for years And with The Whisper Man North joins the conversation in a uietly powerful way Tom s undimmed love for his son is a lantern glow in the center of the story a bright spot like a firefly guiding the way forward and it gladdens my heart to think of it When Tom had lost his wife he d thought he d lost sight of any landmark that might have led his small family someplace happier The thought of letting Jack down of not being good enough of a parent gave him such continual anguish It came to him obtrusively obsessively always with a painful shock and Tom felt the terrible truth of it in the seemingly unbridgeable distance between them the impassable distance between a father and son even when they were within arm s reach of each other But when a threat to his son s life bathed Tom in the furnace heat of a menace as unforgiving as a wildfire the bedrock atrocity of his insecurities dwindled to ember and ash driven out by a love so caustic it seared every nerve His relationship with his son might be damaged and eroded but it was not destroyed They ll jigsaw the jangled broken thing it became until it fit itself back together and begin perhaps to mendAll in all a solid read ko fi blog twitter tumblr
