Chalk man : a novel
By C.J. Tudor
In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for each other as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing will ever be the same. This British debut novel is being touted as the “must-read” thriller of 2018.
Hysteria : a novel
By Elisabeth de Mariaffi
Heike Lerner’s life looks perfect from the outside. But lately, Heike’s noticed there are some things out of place – her husband Eric is becoming increasingly more controlling. Something sinister that Heike cannot quite put her finger on is lingering just beneath the surface of this idyllic life. Another nail biter by this up-and-coming Canadian author.
