The Shadows: A Novel – By Alex North

“If you liked The Whisper Man, you’ll love this. Alex North has crafted a second novel which is just as gripping as his first and even scarier. Hugely atmospheric and deliciously creepy, it’s about how the past encroaches on the present, and how dreaming influences reality, until in the frightening world of The Shadows, it becomes harder and harder to tell one from the other… and the nightmare takes over.”
– Alex Michaelides, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Silent Patient
