C. J. Tudor – The Hiding Place

The Hiding Place is terrific in every way. (Lee Child)

From the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man comes an unputdownable psychological thriller about a man who returns home to settle old scores – and uncovers a secret darker than he could have imagined.

Joe never wanted to come back to Arnhill. After the way things ended with his old gang – the betrayal, the suicide – and what happened when his sister went missing, the last thing he wanted to do was return to his hometown. But Joe doesnt have a choice, not after a chilling email surfaces in his inbox: I know what happened to your sister. Its happening again….

Lying his way into a teaching job at his former high school is the easy part. Facing off with onetime friends who arent too happy to have him back in town – while avoiding the enemies hes made in the years since – is tougher. But the hardest part of all will be returning to the abandoned mine where his life changed forever, and finally confronting the horrifying truth about Arnhill, his sister, and himself. Because for Joe, the worst moment of his life wasnt the day his sister went missing. It was the day she came back.

I kept waiting for more horror but by the end I had imagined all the horror necessary! I loved the plot twists, a few I can honestly say I didn’t see coming. I didn’t even try because the writing kept me engaged and there was no need to try to “jump ahead”.
