Description

HE WAS JUST A PLAYGROUND STORY, UNTIL THEY LET HIM IN.

'THE MUST-READ SUMMER CHILLER' Daily Express

'IF YOU READ JUST ONE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER THIS YEAR - MAKE IT THE TALL MAN' CultureFly


They went looking for a story. What they found was a nightmare.

It started as nothing, just a scary story passed around between schoolchildren. But for Sadie and her friends, the rumours soon became an unhealthy obsession - and the darkness all too real.

Years later, Sadie's teenage daughter Amber has been charged with murder, and her trial shocks the world. How could such a young girl commit such a terrible crime?

It seems the secrets of Sadie's past have come back to haunt her daughter. And the terrifying truth of what happened all those years ago is finally about to come out . . .

'So creepy and chilling' Laura Marshall, Friend Request

'Relentless and needle-sharp' Cara Hunter, Close to Home
