THE GRIPPING NEW PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK THE WHISPER MAN
The victim was his friend. So was the murderer.
'Hugely atmospheric and deliciously creepy' Alex Michaelides, bestselling author of The Silent Patient
Twenty-five years ago, troubled teenager Charlie Crabtree murdered his friend and classmate.
For Paul Adams, it's a day he'll never forget.
He's never forgiven himself for his part in what happened. He's never gone back home. But when his elderly mother has a fall, it's finally time to stop running.
It's not long before things start to go wrong. A copycat killer has struck. Paul's mother insists there's something in the house.
And someone is following him.
Which reminds Paul of the most unsettling part of what awful day.
The fact that afterwards, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again . . .
