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

  • Alex North has achieved the seemingly impossible. The Whisper Man is a thriller that is both terrifying and utterly heartbreaking. Mesmerising and masterful.

  • 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
  • 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

  • Alex North weaves a stunningly captivating narrative that's a nuanced and grounded exploration of father-son relationships. He strikes such a delicate balance that consistently elevates itself, he ultimately provides a master class in genre exploration. An incredible read

  • Beautifully crafted, heart-rending and spine-tinglingly chilling, the Whisper Man is a thrilling tour de force. Assured and compelling, I can't wait to see what Alex North does next

    Sarah Pinborough
  • 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
  • The Whisper Man is the most unsettling thriller I have read since Jo Nesbo's The Snowman. Much more than the sum of its parts, it is nightmarish and disturbing and, at the same time, a moving and life-affirming novel about fathers and sons, and grief, loss, and recovery
