Whispers

A terrifying thriller of unrelenting suspense

By Dean Koontz

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Whispers are driving Bruno Frye to kill - even if it means returning from the grave . . .

A beautiful woman scarred by a hateful past. A compassionate cop haunted by a childhood blighted by poverty.

Violence brought them together. An unspeakable abomination may tear them apart.

Bruno Frye nightly succumbs to the malicious lullaby of the whispers. Losing himself in the nightdreams of their rustling cries, he is deafened by whispers more piercing than any scream. In the dark recesses of his mind no act is too violent, no deed too shocking . . .
