The Hiding Place

40091283
Title: The Hiding Place
Author: C.J.Tudor
Genre:Thriller
Rating: 4

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 doesn’t have a choice, not after a chilling email surfaces in his inbox: I know what happened to your sister. It’s happening again . . .

Lying his way into a teaching job at his former high school is the easy part. Facing off with onetime friends who aren’t too happy to have him back in town—while avoiding the enemies he’s 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 wasn’t the day his sister went missing.

It was the day she came back.

My thoughts
This is the second book I've read from this author and just like the first one which was The Chalk Man,it was just as dark and twisted, and  suspenseful, which had me setting on the edge of my bed. It kept me pulled into the story from start to finish. And other thing I loved about it was  the supernatural aspect. And just like there was somethings I liked about the book there was also some things that I wanted more of which was :  an explanation for the creepy happenings in Arnhill and more  backstory on the town . But nonetheless I did enjoy it. With that said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it .
