'Some writers have it, and some don't. C. J. Tudor has it big time - The Taking of Annie Thorne is terrific in every way' Lee Child 'Dark, gothic and utterly compelling, The Taking of Annie Thorne pulls off a rare combination - an atmosphere of unsettling evil along with richly nuanced characterisation' J. P. Delaney The new spine-tingling, sinister thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man . . . _______________ One night, Annie went missing. Disappeared from her own bed. There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst. And then, miraculously, after forty-eight hours, she came back. But she couldn't, or wouldn't, say what had happened to her. Something happened to my sister. I can't explain what. I just know that when she came back, she wasn't the same. She wasn't my Annie. I didn't want to admit, even to myself, that sometimes I was scared to death of my own little sister. 'With shades of Pet Sematary and an all-round aura of creepiness, The Taking of Annie Thorne cements C. J. Tudor's position as a major new talent at the dark heart of crime writing. Brilliant.' Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle 'Deliciously creepy, impeccably plotted and laced with both wicked humor and genuine shocks, The Taking of Annie Thorne is the kind of read-under-the-covers thriller you didn't think people wrote anymore. Lucky for us, C. J. Tudor still does. An absolute corker of a book' Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of Final Girls and The Last Time I Lied 'I loved it. The quality of her writing meant it was an absolute pleasure to read, as well as being genuinely terrifying. It made my hair stand on end!

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & SHORTLISTED FOR A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD AND THE STEEL DAGGER, BEST THRILLER AWARD . . . A DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR 'If you like my stuff, you'll like this' STEPHEN KING 'A tense gripper with a leave-the-lights-on shock ending' Sunday Times ________________ You can feel it in the woods, in the school and in the playground; you can feel it in the houses and at the fairground. You can feel it in most places in the small town of Anderbury . . . the fear that something or someone is watching you. It began back in 1986, at the fair, on the day of the accident. That was when twelve-year-old Eddie met Mr Halloran - the Chalk Man. He gave Eddie the idea for the drawings: a way to leave secret messages for his friends and it was fun, until the chalk men led them to a body. Thirty years later, Ed believes the past is far behind him, until an envelope slips through the letterbox. It contains a stick of chalk, and a drawing of a figure. Is history going to repeat itself? Was it ever really over? Will this game only end in the same way? ________________ '[I] haven't had a sleepless night due to a book in a long time.
