Take a moment and imagine your history books devoid of war. Envision entire civilizations absent of heinous crimes against humanity. A planet spared from the plagues of slavery, cultural genocides, and the colonization of indigenous nations by foreigners. Would you dare make the choices necessary to maintain this Utopia in which universal peace existed? Could you ignore the devil whispering in your ear, luring you away from a world in which loving your fellow man was the expectation, not the exception?
In a state of reverie, an impractical idea of world peace has given birth to a culture in which the human race has chosen to live free of violent criminals. Instead, criminals have been systematically exiled to the lone prison city, Katingal, constructed in a far corner of Earth. Sentenced for the remainder of their natural lives, the wicked pit themselves against their soulless brethren. Exposure, disease, and starvation claim their victims daily. Those who survive nature’s wrath negotiate the perils of the prison city through murder and cannibalism. All the while, this inimitable death sentence satisfies civilization’s aim to punish the world’s irretrievable outcasts.
Charles “Yäbälay” Gravo is the criminal mastermind behind the world’s largest human trafficking network. As a prime most-wanted fugitive, he sets into motion events that will forever alter the realities of both civilization’s Utopia and Katingal’s Hell.

Well worth the listen!
It’s been a while since I’ve come across a book that genuinely kept me guessing the way The Devil’s Whisper did; I could not predict a single turn in the plot! The storyline was enthralling, the imagery vivid, and the characters engaging. In fact, I applaud the author for successfully treading a delicate balance of humanizing an unsavory main character (to the point that I felt invested in his survival), without attempting to romanticize him as a hero or absolving him of his wickedness.
Additionally, it's apparent that the author is detail-oriented and an intellectual, as illustrated by the deliberate inclusion of certain scientific, cultural, and historical references. I'll admit that this book had me referring to google a few times. It was entertaining and mentally stimulating, which is a bonus for me.
If you’re on the fence about getting the The Devil’s Whisper, just do it! It’s a well-written book, and better than anything on Netflix.
