Don’t miss this gripping Slayton thriller from #1 bestselling crime author Caroline Mitchell.
It began with the whispers. In the woods, in the park, and always at night. Then they came into town, down dark alleys, and in the shadows. Before long, the black-eyed children were moving closer, until finally there was a knock on the door.
When the couple were found dead with their faces frozen in horror, the children were nowhere to be seen. Until it happened again.
Join Detective Sarah Noble as she investigates another dark case in the town of Slayton.
Perfect for fans of Alex North, Cara Hunter and Stephen King.
This is the second book in the crime series featuring Detective Sarah Noble of which would highly recommend you read in order as a lot of what happened in the previous novel, The Midnight Man, is mentioned in this one. It’s also a brilliant book and not to be missed!
I love that quite a few of the characters from the first novel, are heavily featured in this one also. Elliot especially I was pleased to see as I haven’t stopped thinking about him from the last book so was good to be able to catch up with them and see how they were doing after the horrors of The Midnight Man.
I actually didn’t think the author would be able to top the start to this series but she has. Whilst these maybe crime thrillers, there is an element of horror to them also. Mentions of children with black eyes spooked me out and have to say it probably wasn’t the best thing to read before going to bed as couldn’t get the image of them out of my head!
The Night Whispers is a cleverly plotted story that guarantees to hook the reader from the chilling start. It’s like when you get onto one of those roller coasters where you try and prepare yourself for it picking up speed and the hair raising twists and turns that lie ahead, only for it to shoot off at full force. Wow, what a ride the author took me on! This series is turning out to be one of the most thrilling as well as chilling that I have read in this genre. One to most definitely read with the lights on!
