APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A killer’s been claiming victims in an English town, leaving little chalk drawings as a calling card. The Chalk Man ricochets between 1986 and 2016, tracking a group of friends who discovered one of the victims and tracing protagonist Eddie Adams’ attempts to sort out whodunit. C.J. Tudor ratchets up the uncertainty with cleverly developed internal tensions between Eddie and his pals; every time we were ready to dismiss him as a suspect, his peculiarities—sleepwalking, kleptomania, portentous nightmares—threw his role into question again. This spine-tingling mystery totally gripped our imagination.

Just read it, gripping, funny and twisted. You’ll enjoy it trust me.
This is such a good book, it has every aspect to give you a sense of fear. As well as this, you are on the edge of your seat the entire time of reading, until you finally fall off at the end where there is massive twist.
Picked this up on a whim at the airport and wow, what an impulse buy. Love the story, the characters, the writing itself was easily digestible but well thought out.
Devoured this book in 2 sittings (which is saying something as I hadn’t read in years). The ending blew my mind!
