I am delighted to be the next stop on the blog tour for the wonderful Inside The Whispers. Today you can see my thoughts on author A J Waines newest novel as well as a quick Q&A with the author herself.
Where the most dangerous place – is inside your own head…
Following a London Tube disaster, three traumatised survivors turn to clinical psychologist, Dr Samantha Willerby, for help – but she’s mystified when their stories don’t add up. Her confusion turns to horror when one by one, instead of recovering, they start committing suicide.
When her partner, Conrad, begins to suffer the same terrifying flashbacks, Sam is desperate to find out what is causing them and a mysterious and chilling crime begins to unravel.
Then the flashbacks begin for Sam…
The first book in the Dr Samantha Willerby Series, INSIDE THE WHISPERS is a tense, haunting Psychological Thriller that will leave your nerves in shreds.
I have to say I absolutely loved the story line in Inside The Whispers. It’s not one you come across very often so it had me well and truly hooked right from the start.
Sam (Samantha) has recently just started a new job in a hospital helping patients that are suffering with PTSD. The reader can’t help but be as shocked and confused as Sam when her patients start committing suicide. I think it’s the final straw for Sam when her boyfriend Con starts experiencing the same flashbacks and she knows she has to get to the bottom of it before it’s too late and Con ends up with the same fate as her other patients.
I had so much empathy for Sam. There are a lot of issues in her family life, caused mainly by her older sister ‘Miranda’. Her life seems to be getting on the right track with her new job and her new boyfriend Con and she is as happy as she can be. Unfortunately when her sister turns up at her door unexpectedly and then her patients turning up dead, Sam’s life is suddenly spiralling out of control.
There are so many red herrings in this story that I didn’t know who to like or trust. It’s a novel that will certainly keep it’s readers on it’s toes and have them second guessing everything.
Inside The Whispers is a dark and tense read that is full of suspense. A guaranteed page turner that will certainly mess with the readers mind and is an absolute must read for psychological thrillers. Can not wait for more in this series.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
Inside The Whispers is out now and available to purchase from Amazon.
