Synopsis: After 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, Featherbank.
But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted Nd 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.

His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter’s crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice.

And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window…
Star Rating: 5/5 stars
My Thoughts: No one is more surprised than me that I’m eating a mystery/thriller so highly. I usually don’t have a lot of success with this genre, and I’m usually left desperately wanting after the conclusion. However, with The Whisper Man, there was not a single problem that I had with this book.
From the very first page, I was sucked in. The characters were all so interesting, so realistic and multi-faceted. The plot was interesting and well thought out and moved along very well. Overall, great construction of the book.
What I think I really liked, though, was that while this was a mystery novel on the surface, there was so much more that was going on between the lines. So many other themes were touched on and handled so well.
I’ve honestly wanted to get my hands on this book for a while now, and I’m glad I finally did.

A year ago I had my entire spritual identity questioned and it all fell apart at my feet. My beliefs were not my own but belonged to someone else who wrote it in a book and sold it to me for $25. Desperately I tried to pick up the pieces for nearly a year and get back some kind of semblance of what I previously had, but it just didn’t work. In recent months I’ve realized that I’m an atheist and I believe in fact over fiction, but this doesn’t mean I throw magic completely out the window. I just view magic differently and my practice is a million times simpler than it was. I don’t have an altar and my beautiful baphomet altar box is merely a decoration on my dresser to serve as a reminder to take care of the god within. My mjolnir pendants sit in a jewelry box until I can find them new owners who will cherish them. I’ve sold my beautiful gold antler candle holders that I bought while working in retail.
It’s all slowly coming to an end.
Aside from the plants I keep in my apartment that I nurture to keep my bills paid and to protect my home, I don’t really consider myself a “witch" anymore. When my plants wilt I know something’s up and I search within myself for the answers rather than a deity or spirit. Afterall all deites and spirits are, are reflections of us. We have the answers within ourselves. We are the source of our power. We. Are. God.
I took all of my books on spirituality and witchcraft and donated them to my local library. Hopefully they’ll find people who need them just like I did. Maybe we’ll be one person closer to humanity realizing that the power we externalize has been within us all along.
