The Fear The Sensational New Thriller from the Sunday Times Bestseller, Now in a Brand New Look for 2018 Synopsis

When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn't what he seemed and he left her life in pieces. Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn't repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he's caused. But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it's clear that she could once again become his prey... The million copy Sunday Times bestseller returns with a gripping psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Praise for The Fear: `A skewering portrait of obsessive love and psychological manipulation, this book gets under the skin from the outset and won't let you go until you've gasped at THAT ending. This is Taylor's best book yet.' CJ Cooke (author of I Know My Name) `Wow! Such a fast-paced, gripping, tense thriller. My heart was in my mouth at the end. Her best yet!' Claire Douglas (author of Local Girl Missing)

'I lost my entire weekend to it! What an absolutely cracking read...pacy, well written, and anxiety inducing.' - Lisa Hall

'The Fear is a compulsive read, that forces the reader to consider just how far they would go to protect themselves and those around them. I could not put this book down!' - Emma Kavanagh

'It's a close call as the bar's set so high but this has to be C.L. Taylor's best yet. SO entertaining, high on the shock-factor and yet totally `real'.' - Caz Frear
