Tall Oaks : A Gripping Missing Child Thriller with a Devastating Twist Paperback


"Completely blew me away" Lisa Hall, author of the No.1 bestselling psychological thriller Between You and Me.

A brilliant and gripping thriller that everyone is talking about... Tall Oaks is an idyllic small town, until the disappearance of a young child throws the tight-knit community into crisis. Jess Monroe, the boy's distraught mother, is simultaneously leading the search and battling her own grief and self-destructive behaviour.

Her neighbours watch on, their sympathy masking a string of dark secrets. This is a small town where nothing is as it seems, and everyone has something to hide. And as the investigation draws towards a climax, prepare for a devastating final twist... Dark but laugh-out-loud funny, full of suspense and packed with twists, this brilliant new thriller is like nothing you've read before.

Highly original" Guardian"I always know when a book has completely blown me away - as a reader, I want to weep because I've finished it and I will never again get to experience it for the first time, and as a writer, it makes me want to weep because I wish I had written it myself.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS."Lisa Hall, author of the No.1 Bestseller Between You and Me"One of the best books I've read this year" Jo Spain, bestselling author of With Our Blessing"A gripping debut" Mail on Sunday"Chris Whitaker builds an entire town in the reader's head and masterfully inhabits it with comic, poignant, gripping life.

Tall Oaks becomes a part of you." David Whitehouse, author of Bed and Mobile Library
