Summary

You shared a secret with the wrong person.  

Janey Markham is thrilled to be moving with her family to Buckingham Crescent, the smartest address in a desirable suburban town. 

Worried she’ll be excluded by the glossy local mothers, Janey is thrilled when she meets Tanya, the kind of woman she has always looked up to. Tanya takes Janey under her wing and her teenage daughter, Angel, is amazing with Janey’s little boy. As Janey and Tanya grow closer, Janey feels she can finally leave her troubled past behind.  

But then everything changes.... 

In a weak moment over a bottle of wine, Janey finds herself telling Tanya her most shocking secret. Why wouldn’t she trust her new friend?  

The following day, Janey sees Angel, with a man old enough to be her father, pushing someone into a car. The next day a body is found, and police appeal for witnesses - and share a picture of the same car.... 

When Janey tells Tanya she is going to the police, Tanya turns threatening. She’ll stop at nothing to defend Angel, even if her daughter is guilty. If Janey says anything, Tanya will make sure that her dark secret gets out. Janey faces an impossible choice. Stay quiet about what she saw that terrible day or speak up and destroy the family she has worked so hard to protect.... 

From million-copy best seller K.L. Slater comes this twisty and absolutely gripping roller-coaster ride of a listen. Fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will be totally hooked on Little Whispers.

Cracking Good Ending

A domestic thriller with the woman as the central character. The first half of the book revolves around school runs and mothers grouping at the school gates, their cliques, who lives in the poshest house etc. Towards the end of the book we discover what was really going on behind the social "one-upmanship". It's about who you can trust and who you should not. A cracking good ending I thought, well worth the wait.

I've come to like K. L. Slater as a writer. There's plenty going on, but not so complicated that it becomes difficult to follow.

Don’t bother, very boring book not worth sticking with

Really I wouldn’t recommend this book. Boring and not worth it. Save yourself the hours!

Not good.

The story could have been edited to about half it’s length. The main character was portrayed as naive, and the ‘evil’ ones stereotypical; the dialogue clunky. Not a great listen.

Dreadful book!

Couldn’t quite believe how bad this book was. Every cliche and stereotype you can imagine. Cross with myself for sticky with it.

Boring!!!

Unstoppable thriller?? My arse. Slow, boring and not at all thrilling. Didn't even bother listening to the last half an hour. The most exciting part was the main characters past and they brushed past that in a 30 second explanation.

For thriller/mystery/suspense lovers

K L Slater back to her original 5 star storytelling! I haven't enjoyed her last few books, but pleased to say this one kept me engaged and surprised right to the end; enjoyed every minute.

Another KL Slater classic

As with all Slater’s books, I was hooked from the start - great narration - my only disappointment was that I’d finished it in 2 days!!

Shouted at Janey

I’ve listened to all of K.L.Slater’s books and enjoyed them. However this one had me annoyed and shouting at my phone at Janey. Really wanted to know the big secret and would have really enjoyed it if it was more of the story rather than just in the background. Sorry but not her best book, pleased I heard others or I wouldn’t bother if this was my first one

You need to read this now!!

A gripping read. Believable from start to finish but how could her husband be so gullible?

Very Well Done!!

Sometimes K.L. Slater writes excellent, gripping stories that I cannot stop reading or listening to. This is one such book! I gobble it up in one sitting over night.

Little Whispers is full of complex characters with a wonderful, gripping, comprehensive story line.

A couple moves into a new neighbourhood with their son after inheriting some money from the wife's mother. They are looking forward to having some more money as the husband has a new IT job. Their son is only eight and he's going to a whole new school, and mom decides to make some friends. Pretentious and down right rude at first, the women from the new school don't seem like they are very welcoming, but eventually mom gets caught up in the web of the gossipy parents.

The husband is spending more and more time at the office and the wife is spending more and more time with her new friends. However, of course.. not everything is what it seems.

This is definitely one of the best, if not THE best Slater book I've heard. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful book!

I loved this book!!! I’m certainly going to be listening to more from this author. The story was so incredibly suspenseful and I really didn’t know how it was going to end. Honestly, the best book that I’ve listened to in a long time.
