Review

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)

Confirms 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. (Daily Mail)

There is no sign of second-album syndrome: the mix of grotty provincial realism and amateur cold-case sleuthing works just as well here (The Sunday Times)

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, bestselling author of The Girl Before)

Tudor's 2018 The Chalk Man was a standout mystery novel with a fresh voice and a spooky plot. This is even better (Washington Post)

Shows that her excellent The Chalk Man was no one-off in matching Stephen King for creepiness (Sunday Express's Bestseller Predictions 2019)

From the author of The Chalk Man comes an equally creepy story about missing children (Woman & Home)

Spine-tingling (Sunday Post)

Spine tinglingly good (Amy Lloyd, bestselling author of The Innocent Wife)

The Taking of Annie Thorne deserves every plaudit it receives (Richard Armitage, narrator of The Taking of Annie Thorne and star of The Hobbit)

From the Inside Flap


Then . . .

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. Though she couldn't, or wouldn't, say what had happened to her.

But 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.

Now . . .

The email arrived in my inbox nearly two months ago.
I almost deleted it straight away - but I clicked Open:

I know what happened to your sister. It's happening again . . .

'Dark, compelling, unsettling' J. P. Delaney
