  • 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
  • As enjoyable and well written as her first, The Chalk Man

    Daily Mirror
  • 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
