If you loved The Chalk Man and The Taking of Annie Thorne then pre-order C. J. Tudor's chilling new novel now . . .

She sleeps, a pale girl in a white room . . .

Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl's face appear in the rear window.

She mouths one word: 'Daddy.'

It's his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.

He never sees her again.

Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.

Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them.

Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe's daughter. She knows who is responsible. And she knows what they will do if they ever catch up with her and Alice . . .

Pre-order C. J. Tudor's next gripping mystery, The Other People, now.

Tudor has crafted an intense novel that gets right to the heart of what it means to love and to grieve . . . Intriguing, dramatic and heartbreaking * Woman & Home * This book is chilling. It's the type of book you need to read with the lights on and the doors locked but it's so gripping you won't regret the mild night terrors * Yahoo! Style UK * Such intricate and enthralling storytelling. Evocative and creepy * Amanda Reynolds * Another black fist of doom, smashing into the feeble world . . . loved it! * Max Wesolowski * Diabolically clever and propulsive as a rollercoaster.

A clever, tense and touching novel * Literary Review * I adored THE OTHER PEOPLE. I was absolutely gripped from start to finish. Deliciously dark, with realistic characters that you simultaneously root for, then recoil from * Caz Frear * Her books have the ability to simultaneously make you unable to stop reading while wishing you could bury the book somewhere deep underground where it can't be found anymore. Compelling and haunting * Sunday Express * Fabulous * Paul Burke, author of The Burning Men * It's rare to read something so downright terrifying but C.J. Tudor manages it time and again. The Other People grabs you by the throat and keeps on squeezing till the very last page. Clever. Original. Brilliant * Chris Whitaker * C. J. Tudor's best novel to date. This tale of the lengths some people will go to to ease their grief was utterly emotionally believable while still treading at the edges of the worlds of Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Gripping and thoroughly entertaining. I can't wait to see what she does next * Sarah Pinborough * C J Tudor is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. She has such a gift for storytelling. Couldn't turn the pages fast enough * Fiona Cummins, author of The Rattle * A darkly compelling tale of justice, revenge and the darkness lurking at the edges of everyday life - with an utterly propulsive plot that makes it very, very hard to put down * T.

Touches of the supernatural bring an extra dimension to the spine-tingling thrills * Sunday Mirror * An intense novel that gets right to the heart of what it means to love and to grieve. Intriguing, dramatic and heart-breaking * Woman & Home * Chilling and utterly gripping. Loved the twists and the well-drawn everyday details. A fantastic new book from the Queen of Creepy * Will Dean, bestselling author of Red Snow * C. J. Tudor is terrific. I can't wait to see what she does next * Harlan Coben * Utterly magnificent. Such a beautifully weaved and satisfyingly complex tale, with just the right level of spookiness * James Oswald * Hugely enjoyable and deliciously creepy. I was hooked from its gripping opening, all the way through its many twist and turns. Ostensibly about a man searching for his missing daughter, it's a tale about loss, where nothing is quite as it seems; and, although you may think you've got it worked out, CJ Tudor is always several steps ahead. A brilliant storyteller. * Alex Michaelides, author of The Silent Patient * The Other People is a creepy, intense novel that drew me right in and never let go. C. J. Tudor's books keep getting better and better, and this one won't let you stop reading until the very last page! * Samantha Downing, author of My Lovely Wife * C. J. Tudor has done it again. A mesmerizingly chilling and atmospheric page-turner * J. P. Delaney, author of The Girl Before *
