    Guardian
  • Creepy. With the movie rights sold to Hollywood, Alfred Hitchcock would have loved every spine-tingling moment

    Daily Mail
  • The best crime novel of the decade

    Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of Thirteen
  • Alex North has achieved the seemingly impossible. The Whisper Man is a thriller that is both terrifying and utterly heartbreaking. Mesmerising and masterful.

    Mark Billingham
  • First it's spooky. Then it's scary. Then it's terrifying. And then... well, dear reader, proceed at your own risk. An ambitious, deeply satisfying thriller - a seamless blend of Harlan Coben, Stephen King, and Thomas Harris. My flesh is still crawling

    A. J. Finn, no.1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
  • A police procedural with supernatural overtones, this is a true skin-crawler

    Guardian, Best Summer Reads
  • The Whisper Man is going to be huge. Dark enough to chill your blood but so beautifully written you will not be able to put it down. Utterly brilliant.

    Ali Land, Sunday Times bestselling author of Good Me, Bad Me
  • Beautifully written. Beautifully plotted. Shades of Thomas Harris and Stephen King but brilliant in its own right

    C. J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man
  • An ultra-creepy tinge of the supernatural, blended with a petrifying threat from all-too-human monsters, conjures truly blood-chilling menace. Built on a tender theme, this flawlessly plotted thriller absolutely deserves to be shouted about

    Sunday Mirror
  • You might think you've read too many of these "next generation serial killer" novels but this is a very good example with strong characters and a palpable sense of sadness behind the scariness
