What we’re reading this September

The Whisper Man

Tom Kennedy and his young son, Jake, have just moved to a quiet village, hoping to heal the hurt after the loss of their wife and mum. The place they choose to live, Featherbank, has a dark past… 15 years before, a serial killer, known as The Whisper Man, abducted and murdered five young boys. The killer was caught, and this history doesn’t worry Tom and Jake. Until another boy goes missing. And Jake says he hears whispering at his window. Described as gripping, moving and brilliantly creepy… an outstanding new psychological thriller. Penguin, R290.

One Good Deed

“It was a good day to be free of prison.” So begins David Baldacci’s One Good Deed… his latest release which, as always, keeps readers’ adrenalin running high. When Aloysius Archer gets out of prison, he heads for Poca City, with just the clothes he’s wearing and an appointment with his parole officer. A chance meeting sees him offered a job as a debt collector – but all’s not above board, and if Aloysius wants to avoid heading back behind bars, he’s got his work cut out for him. Macmillan, R299.

The Neighbour

A new home in the suburbs offers a fresh start to a family of four. It’s in a quiet, leafy road, with good schools, and is close to the sea and a comfortable commute to London. Perfect. All bar the fact that it appears to be the hunting ground for a serial killer. Fiona Cummins’ The Neighbour is as thrilling as it gets. Macmillan, R290.

Blood in the Water
