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?
I have been dying to read this ever since I saw other bloggers praising it !
I was very lucky to find a signed copy in my local Waterstones.
I whizzed through this and can say it is a very impressive written debut .I already can’t wait to see what else is to come from this author .
This is dark chilling and suffocating .
I absolutely loved the different timelines and it being written from a male perspective .
Written from a fresh voice in fiction and fast paced this draws you in .
Original and unpredictable .
Definitely one to watch in the bestseller charts this year !
I read it too this week and loved it too x
