The Noise by James Patterson and J D Barker

4 Stars from me

A group of professionals are gathered and tasked with investigating an ‘anomaly’…

Intriguing already!

Two sisters, 8 year old Sophie and 16 year old Tennant, appear to be the only two survivors from their small community. The rural life has prepared them somewhat as they are familiar with hunting, tracking and surviving with the bare minimum of things.

The carefully selected team of professionals must first work out what caused the disaster before they can figure out how to stop it happening again. They are a mixed team with Dr Martha Chan, a psychologist who analyses large-scale medical emergencies seeming to have the most clarity of them all.

Then there’s THE NOISE – anyone hearing it begins to bleed from the ears, the nose, they eyes and they consistently behave in an odd way. But why? And what has caused the devastation of Sophie and Tennant’s community.

Soon for Dr Martha Chan, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Fraser and the team – things become a little clearer and then the real stakes are revealed.

This quick to read, dark and disturbing thriller will have you hooked!

In the shadow of Mount Hood, sixteen-year-old Tennant is checking rabbit traps with her eight-year-old sister Sophie when the girls are suddenly overcome by a strange vibration rising out of the forest, building in intensity until it sounds like a deafening crescendo of screams. From out of nowhere, their father sweeps them up and drops them through a trapdoor into a storm cellar. But the sound only gets worse…
