Some writers have it, and some don't. C. J. Tudor has it big time . . . The Taking of Annie Thorne is terrific in every wayConfirms Tudor as Britain's female Stephen King. There is a creeping dread on every page and, as you start a new chapter, a dark shadow over your shoulder. Tudor's punk prose style and her great eye for menace make this a book no one should read at night. There is no sign of second-album syndrome: the mix of grotty provincial realism and amateur cold-case sleuthing works just as well here As enjoyable and well written as her first, The Chalk ManDark, gothic and utterly compelling, The Taking of Annie Thorne pulls off a rare combination - an atmosphere of unsettling evil along with richly nuanced characterisationTudor's 2018 The Chalk Man was a standout mystery novel with a fresh voice and a spooky plot.

THEN

One night, my little sister went missing.

There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst.

And then, miraculously, she came back.

She couldn't, or wouldn't, say what had happened.

But she wasn't the same afterwards. She wasn't my Annie.

Because sometimes my own little sister scared me to death . . .

NOW

The email arrives in my inbox:

I know what happened to your sister.

It's happening again . . .
