Whispers is the story of Oliver Lawrence Tridwell (Olly) during the last four days of his life. Narrated in first and third person from Olly’s point of view, the novel explores his past to reveal a life of loneliness, torment and abuse, with no family or social support. Psychologically disadvantaged, physically weak and malnourished, Oliver sees the world as being against him. Bullied and beaten up on a daily basis, the whispers – the voices in his head – become his comforting guides; his three guns are his only friends. The fantasy love of his school years, Jennifer Harper, has suddenly expressed her love for Olly, a love he has pined for since he first laid eyes on her. But the dream date proves to Oliver that he will only ever be a victim of people’s hate. And the night of their first meeting leads to Oliver’s darker fantasy: the inevitable, compulsive, armed killing spree – the Portsville Massacre.
