Synopsis

The darkly compelling new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man, The Taking of Annie Thorne and The Other People



'Hypnotic and horrifying . . . Without doubt her best yet, The Burning Girls left me sleeping with the lights on' CHRIS WHITAKER, bestselling author of Waterstones Thriller of the Month We Begin at the End

______



500 years ago: eight martyrs were burnt to death

30 years ago: two teenagers vanished without trace

Two months ago: the vicar committed suicide



Welcome to Chapel Croft.



For Rev Jack Brooks and teenage daughter Flo it's supposed to be a fresh start. New job, new home. But, as Jack knows, the past isn't easily forgotten.



And in a close-knit community where the residents seem as proud as they are haunted by Chapel Croft's history, Jack must tread carefully. Ancient superstitions as well as a mistrust of outsiders will be hard to overcome.



Yet right away Jack has more frightening concerns.



Why is Flo plagued by visions of burning girls?

Who's sending them sinister, threatening messages?

And why did no one mention that the last vicar killed himself?



Chapel Croft's secrets lie deep and dark as the tomb. Jack wouldn't touch them if not for Flo - anything to protect Flo.



But the past is catching up with Chapel Croft - and with Jack. For old ghosts with scores to settle will never rest . . .

Customer Reviews

“The Burning Girls” is the latest novel from C.J. Tudor, bestselling author of “The Chalk Man” and “The Taking of Annie Thorne” amongst others. I have these books to read but this was the first time I had read anything by this author and was genuinely awestruck by the quality of the writing. The tight plot content, the compelling narrative, the distinctive characters and the twists and turns along the way, that incidentally kept me guessing until the VERY end! ‘500 years ago: eight martyrs were burnt to death. 30 years ago: two teenagers vanished without trace. Two months ago: the vicar committed suicide. Welcome to Chapel Croft!’ With a blurb as enticing as that, I was drawn in immediately and found this book impossible to put down. Every page and scene played out in my mind like a movie, from the descriptions of the characters to the spooky and tense ‘goings on’. C.J. Tudor has been likened to the world class horror writer, Stephen King and I have to agree wholeheartedly on that! Impeccable in all areas of story telling, I was engrossed from beginning to end and only wish I had time to read it all again straightaway. There aren’t enough stars in the literary world to award “The Burning Girls”, so 5 gold stars will have to suffice - but for me this was above and beyond top marks and if this is your genre too, you should enjoy this fabulous book. 5 stars
