Sooner or later, death visits everyone. Before that, they meet Charlie.
Charlie meets everyone - but only once. Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. Either way, this is going to be the most important meeting of your life.
The End of the Day is the stunning new story from Claire North, the voice behind the word-of-mouth bestseller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.
'Reaffirms the passion and ambition that have made North such a consistently intriguing writer' Locus

Completely love all her other books, but this one is just Meh
I only read the sample of this book. Truly dire and lazy writing. Who calls a character after an English town? Milton Keynes??? Really? Ffs. It's a no from me.
North has such an incredible imagination and a honesty of writing that brings the bizarre into real life. A must read. In fact all her books are.
