'TERRIFIC IN EVERY WAY' LEE CHILD
The spine-tingling and sinister new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man . . .
One night, Annie disappeared.
There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst.
And then, after 48 hours, she came back.
But she couldn't - or wouldn't - say what had happened to her.
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.

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