"The haunting new thriller from Alex North, author of the New York Times bestseller The Whisper Man You knew a teenager like Charlie Crabtree. A dark imagination, a sinister smile--always on the outside of the group. Some part of you suspected he might be capable of doing something awful. Twenty-five years ago, Crabtree did just that, committing a murder so shocking that it's attracted that strange kind of infamy that only exists on the darkest corners of the internet--and inspired more than one copycat. Paul Adams remembers the case all too well: Crabtree--and his victim--were Paul's friends. Paul has slowly put his life back together. But now his mother, old and senile, has taken a turn for the worse. Though every inch of him resists, it is time to come home. It's not long before things start to go wrong. Reading the news, Paul learns another copycat has struck. His mother is distressed, insistent that there's something in the house. And someone is following him. Which reminds him of the most unsettling thing about that awful day twenty-five years ago. It wasn't just the murder. It was the fact that afterward, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again.."--… (més)

I listened to this full length audio book curtesy of NetGalley. I’m going to say that this is not usually a book that I would read, but I had heard good things about The Whisper Man. This book starts off with Paul, now a college lecturer, returning home because his mother is in hospice and doesn’t have long to live. Twenty five years ago, Paul was taken to the police station because of a brutal murder that took place on the playground near his home. Unfortunately, there seems to be a copycat out there. When Paul was a teenager, he and his friend James met two boys who believed in Lucid Dreaming. The idea that you could actually share a dream with someone and accomplish things together that you wouldn’t be able to do on your own. This isn’t a mystery exactly, so if that is what you are looking for, you may want to give this one a pass. If you like a bit of can-people-really-do-this-and-wouldn’t-it-be-cool-if-they-could kind of book then this is for you. Full disclosure, I received an advance copy for this honest review. ( )

"De schaduwvriend neemt je vanaf het begin mee op een beklijvende tocht! Het is een enorm goed boek dat ik moest uitlezen en moeilijk kon laten liggen. Ik geef het een 4,5, afgerond naar 4 sterren! Meer van dit, meneer North!"

When a young boy is murdered 25 years ago and the crime is never solved, a town will continue to wonder. When some of the same mysterious events begin happening again when Paul returns to town, a town will suspect. Detective Beck believes it's more than coincidence and begins to investigate.

The mystery of the murder 25 years ago and the murder of a boy in the present collide in this chilling tale about "The Shadows". I loved the way that Alex North intertwined the past crime with the present and found myself enjoying this one.

The Netgalley audiobook was a bit difficult to listen to at times due to an odd echo when the speed is turned up and I found myself abandoning it and moving to my hardcover instead.

Thank you for allowing me to listen and give my honest opinion. ( )

This was a good, creepy book. It had a twist or two that I didn’t see coming. Great mystery as well. ( )

Twenty-five years ago, near the English village of Featherbank, which served as the setting of North's debut, The Whisper Man, there were four boys who weren't really close. But three were outcasts at school and the fourth, Paul, tagged along to protect his friend James, who was in the thrall of the group's leader, Charlie Crabtree. Charlie came up with an idea: they would all keep dream diaries, using them to make their dreams converge; then they could control events in the waking world and avenge themselves on their tormentors. Eventually, three went into a dark woods, the Shadows. Only one came out; a mutilated corpse was left behind. The one who came out went to prison, but Charlie Crabtree disappeared, never to be heard from again. Now Paul has come home--his mother's dying, he hasn't seen her in 25 years--and bad things start up again. There's a copycat killing in the woods. Someone follows it on the Dark Net. "Red hands everywhere," his mother mutters. Paul searches for answers. Before this twisty story ends, there are many surprises, including who's been killed and who killed them. VERDICT The conclusion wraps it up too tidily, but overall, this is a successful, creepy thriller. If you like Stephen King, you'll probably like North's new thriller, too.

The pseudonymous North follows up his sensational debut, 2019’s The Whisper Man, with another terrifying spine-tingler set in Featherbank, England. When Paul Adams was 15, his school playground was the scene of the murder of one of his friends. The alleged killer, teenager Charlie Crabtree, was another friend of Paul. Charlie disappeared and was never seen again. After going away to college, Paul doesn’t return to Featherbank until, as a 40-year-old English teacher, he decides he must come home to tend to his dying mother. To his dismay, history appears to be repeating itself with a series of copycat killings of teenage boys. Det. Amanda Beck, from the previous novel, investigates as the bodies pile up and suspects accumulate. Ghosts (real and imagined) continue to haunt Paul, whose senile mother fears something strange is in the house. The complex plot shifts smoothly between past and present with numerous unexpected twists. An overwhelming atmosphere of doom and disaster hovers over the perennial darkness of the nearby woods. This heart-pounding page-turner is impossible to put down.
