Staff Reviews

C.J. Tudor's debut novel is chilling, suspenseful, gripping, and a spooky good read. The Chalk Man blends childhood fears and a harrowing crime. The story jumps between past and present, following Eddie, a man whose childhood games come back to haunt him. As a kid, Eddie and his friend used little chalk figures as hidden messages left behind for one another, but then a mysterious chalk man leads them to a dismembered body, and nothing will ever be the same. As an adult, Eddie thinks he's put the past behind him until one day he receives a letter containing a single chalk figure. Before long, one of Eddie's old friends is found dead, and Eddie realizes that to save himself he'll need to figure out what really happened all those years ago.
