The haunting new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man.
It arrived in my inbox just over a month ago. Surprising really that it didn't get shunted straight into junk.
'I know what happened to your sister. It's happening again.'
Because when my sister was eight years old, she disappeared. At the time, I thought it was the worst thing that could ever happen.
And then she came back . . .
About the Author
C. J. Tudor was born in Salisbury and grew up in Nottingham, where she still lives with her partner and young daughter. Her love of writing, especially the dark and macabre, started young. When her peers were reading Judy Blume, she was devouring Stephen King and James Herbert.
Over the years she has had a variety of jobs, including trainee reporter, radio scriptwriter, dog walker, voiceover artist, television presenter, copywriter and, now, author. Her first novel, The Chalk Man, was a Sunday Times bestseller and sold in thirty-nine territories.
"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."
"C. J. Tudor has proven that she is the true master at creating perfectly dark, highly propulsive, and tightly coiled mysteries that are utterly impossible to put down. From page one, the reader is pulled in, in a gathering sense of dread, and taken on an addictive, thrilling ride to the very last page."
Aimee Molloy, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Mother
"Delicious in every way. A deliciously creepy story, deliciously told. Storytelling like a siren's song: your hair will prickle and stand on end but you won't be able to tear your eyes from the page. If you like Tana French, you will love, love, love C. J. Tudor."
"Gripping and dark, The Taking of Annie Thorne descends like its very own mine shaft, getting creepier the further you go. You'll race to the finish."
