Summary
  • Hay juegos que solo tienen un final posible. Un thriller oscuro e inteligente. Echando la vista atrás, todo comenzó el día del terrible accidente durante la feria, cuando Eddie, de doce años, conoció al Hombre de Tiza. Fue el Hombre de Tiza quien le dio la idea de los dibujos: una manera de dejar mensajes secretos entre el grupo de amigos. Fue divertido hasta que los dibujos condujeron al cuerpo sin vida de una niña. Sucedió hace treinta años y Ed pensaba que todo había quedado olvidado. Sin embargo, recibe una carta que contiene solo dos cosas: una tiza y el dibujo de un muñeco. La historia se repite y Ed se da cuenta de que el juego en realidad nunca terminó...Todos tenemos secretos. Todos somos culpables de algo. Y los niños no son siempre tan inocentes
  • ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "I haven't had a sleepless night due to a book for a long time. The Chalk Man changed that."-Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Widow "An assured debut that alternates between 1986 and 2016 with unpredictable twists. The Chalk Man fits well with other stories about troubled childhoods such as Stephen King's novella 'Stand by Me' Tudor never misses a beat in showing each character as both a child and an adult while also exploring the foreboding environs of a small town." - Associated Press A riveting and relentlessly compelling psychological suspense debut that weaves a mystery about a childhood game gone dangerously awry, and will keep readers guessing right up to the shocking endingIn 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same. In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he's put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead. That's when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago. Expertly alternating between flashbacks and the present day, The Chalk Man is the very best kind of suspense novel, one where every character is wonderfully fleshed out and compelling, where every mystery has a satisfying payoff, and where the twists will shock even the savviest reader
