A riveting psychological suspense debut that weaves a mystery about a childhood game gone dangerously awry, and will keep readers guessing right up to the shocking ending

In 1986, Eddie and his friends are on the verge of adolescence, spending their days biking in search of adventure. The chalk men are their secret code, stick figures they draw for one another as hidden messages. But one morning the friends find a chalk man leading them to the woods. They follow the message, only to find the dead body of a teenage girl.

In 2016, Eddie is nursing a drinking problem and trying to forget his past, until one day he gets a letter containing a chalk man-the same one he and his friends saw when they found the body. Soon he learns that all his old friends received the same note. When one of them is killed, Eddie realizes that saving himself means figuring out what happened all those years ago. But digging into the past proves more dangerous than he could have known. Because in this town, everyone has secrets, no one is innocent, and some will do anything to bury the truth.

Praise for The Chalk Man

"Wonderfully creepy-like a cold blade on the back of your neck.

 

震撼的心理懸疑處女作,編織有關童年遊戲出錯的謎題,讓讀者一路猜測令人震驚的結局。
 
1986年,艾迪和他的朋友們即將進入青春期,他們每天都騎自行車尋找冒險。粉筆人是他們的暗號,他們用粉筆畫圖隱藏了訊息傳給他人。但有天早上,朋友們發現某個粉筆人把他們帶到了樹林裡。他們按照訊息操作,卻發現了一具十幾歲女孩的屍體。
 
2016年,艾迪有酗酒問題想努力忘記過去,直到有天他收到一封信,裡面有個粉筆人圖像--他和他的朋友當初發現屍體時看到的就是這封信。很快地,他得知他所有的老朋友都收到了同樣紙條。當他們其中一人被殺時,艾迪意識到自己要保命意味著要弄清楚多年前發生的事。但深入研究過去帶來難以想像的危險。因為在這個小鎮,每個人都有秘密,沒有一個人是無辜的,有些人會不惜一切來掩飾真相。
 
讚揚《粉筆人》
 
“非常令人毛骨悚然,就像脖子後面冰冷刀片一樣。”
