Recensioner i media

Easy, gripping and enjoyable -- Cecelia Ahern * bestselling author of P.S. I Love You * As well as being unputdownable, it was emotionally intelligent, touching and credible -- Emma Curtis * author of One Little Mistake * The grip the past has on the present reveals itself in ever more sinister and macabre ways in this utterly original and relentlessly compelling psychological thriller. The Chalk Man kept me guessing all the way to the end -- Fiona Neil * bestselling author of The Betrayals * The Chalk Man is an unpredictable and engaging thriller: sinister, tragic, and with a beautifully rendered sense of time and place. That final page still haunts me -- Helen Callaghan, bestselling author of * Dear Amy * C.J. Tudor brilliantly weaves past and present into a haunting, vividly imagined tale. Much more than a murder mystery, it is a sharp, terrifying exploration of the bonds and limitations of childhood friendships and of secrets that refuse to remain buried. I fell in love with the guiding voice of this novel, the thoughtful and solitary Eddie. Prepare to be surprised again and again, even until the final page -- Michelle Richmond, author of * The Marriage Pact * Finished reading The Chalk Man by C.J Tudor last night. What a book! Enjoyed every minute of it. A total banger! -- Amy Lloyd * author of The Innocent Wife * The Chalk Man stole my weekend! Wow. Just wow. The tension just builds and builds. And what a final page . . . -- Simon Lelic * The House * Blasted through this beauty in one intense and thrilling sitting -- S R Masters * The Killer You Know * Absolutely loved it! Creepy, brilliant and tense, I could not put it down! -- Karen Hamilton * The Perfect Girlfriend * The Chalk Man is an intricate and surprising book that will reward the reader who approaches it with the attention it deserves -- Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author of * The Old Man * The Chalk Man is a stunning debut, a riveting thriller about the powerful grip of the past and the unbreakable bonds of childhood friendship. The ending of this smasher will completely throw you for a loop -- David Bell, bestselling author * Bring Her Home * Just finished The Chalk Man. Dark and addictive. This page-turner is more twisty than a rollercoaster. And one hell of a ride. -- Will Dean * Dark Pines * At the heart of this accomplished debut lies a shocking crime stumbled upon by a group of teenage friends. It is a discovery that shatters their innocence and haunts the whole community. Now, twenty years later, someone is sending anonymous letters - chalk drawings of a stick figure with a noose around its neck - someone who hasn't forgotten what happened in the woods all those years ago. The past is very much alive in this book where memory is unreliable and old secrets fester, threatening to turn as odorous as a rotting corpse. Tudor's sharp eye for detail and ear for dialogue lend the childhood scenes an immediacy and authenticity that completely convince. With its driving plot and sensitive evocation of friendship and loneliness, The Chalk Man is an utterly gripping read, with an ending that will make the hairs on the back of your neck bristle -- Karen Perry * bestselling author of Can You Keep a Secret? * I've just finished The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor. WOW! I could not put it down. If you like Stephen King, you'll LOVE this! -- Hayley Barker * author of Showstopper * One of the best books I've read since I first read Stephen King's IT when I was 14. Go get it! -- Rachel Burton * author of The Many Colours of Us * I absolutely loved The Chalk Man . . . It's a dark, mesmerising thriller with an ending that left me with goosebumps! -- Nuala Elwood * author of My Sister's Bones * Kept me up until five in the morning. Wonderfully written. I loved it! -- Kimberley Chambers * bestselling author of Backstabber * Impossible to put down, cleverly constructed and executed -- Ragnar Jonasson * author of the bestselling Dark Iceland series * Utterly Hypnotic.
