The Whistler is told from the killers’ perspective, the Whistler himself tells the story but is not part of it. He talks to the characters, although they do not hear him. “I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes… I know the nameless terrors of which they cannot speak.” Of course, the bad guys set up the perfect crime.
