You can feel it in the woods, in the school and in the playground; you can feel it in the houses and at the fairground. You can feel it in most places in the small town of Anderbury . . . the fear that something or someone is watching you.
It began back in 1986, at the fair, on the day of the accident. That was when twelve-year-old Eddie met Mr Halloran - the Chalk Man.
He gave Eddie the idea for the drawings: a way to leave secret messages for his friends and it was fun, until the chalk men led them to a body.
Thirty years later, Ed believes the past is far behind him, until an envelope slips through the letterbox. It contains a stick of chalk, and a drawing of a figure.
Is history going to repeat itself?
Was it ever really over?
Will this game only end in the same way?
The Chalk Man is a thriller that just keeps twisting and turning! It doesn't come all together until the very end. If you can figure it all out before the end, please let me know because I sure didn't! There's lots of events that happen that I could never figure out until C.J. Tudor, the author, spelled it out for me. This is her first novel and it's a good one! Eddie is the narrator and the story flips back and forth from 1986 to 2016. Every time you think you are going to figure it out, it flips to whichever year you weren't currently in! It's a page turner!
I really enjoyed this thriller and hope to read more from C.J. Tudor.
I received a copy of this book courtesy of Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
Sadly, they are closing so this is the last book I will have received from them. :( Maybe I can catch up on the rest of my TBR books! Haha!
