Review: The Chalk Man

The Chalk Man The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley for the advance copy of this book.

In 2016 Ed is still living in his childhood home and has his career as a teacher plus shares his home with a boarder. One day he receives a letter in the mail that contains a drawing of a chalk stick man. He is a bit disturbed by this letter and more so when he learns that his friends have also received one.

We are taken back to 1986 when Eddie and his friends were twelve and four of them were very close. Back then there had been a murder and there was always a mystery surrounding it, namely when body parts were discovered and with parts missing.

The story goes back and forth between 1986 and present and has a feeling of innocence and gore all at the same time.

The story held my attention right to the twisted end.

Highly recommended.
