The Whisper Man

(A book in the Jack Nightingale Novella series)
A Novella by

He is charming and good looking, he makes you laugh and he has a twinkle in his eyes. He’s the sort of guy you’d be happy to spend time with. Until the moment comes when he asks you if you want to know a secret. You say yes, of course, and you lean towards him. That’s when he whispers in your ear and everything changes. Within twenty-four hours you are dead and your soul is gone for ever. You’ve just met The Whisper Man.

When supernatural detective Jack Nightingale hears about a rash of suicides across London, he realises that it’s more than a coincidence. Something has come from the bowels of Hell to wreak havoc in the world, and only he can stop it. But to do that he’ll have to put his own soul on the line.

Jack Nightingale appears in the full-length novels Nightfall, Midnight, Nightmare, Nightshade, Lastnight, San Francisco Night, New York Night, Tennessee Night, New Orleans Night, and numerous short stories. The Nightingale timeline is complex, The Whisper Man is set between Midnight and Nightmare, back when he was in London working with his long-suffering assistant Jenny McLean.
