HORROR READ OF THE WEEK
THE TAKING OF ANNIE THORNE, C.J. TUDOR, 9781405930970 (PENGUIN)
BD4.400 for GulfWeekly Book Club members
C J Tudor has been called Britain’s female answer to Stephen King. Her first book The Chalk Man was a best-selling horror-tinged psychological thriller - widely praised - even carrying an endorsement from the king of horror himself who saw in it echoes of his own work.
So now we have her second offering, The Taking of Annie Thorne which is a dark, dark story with many twists:
One night, my little sister went missing.
There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst. And then, miraculously, she came back. She couldn’t, or wouldn’t, say what had happened. But she wasn’t the same afterwards. She wasn’t my Annie.
Because sometimes my own little sister scared me to death . . .
The email arrives in my inbox:
I know what happened to your sister.
It’s happening again . . .
THRILLER OF THE WEEK
THE RECKONING, JOHN GRISHAM, 9781473684423 (HODDER)
BD3.900 for GulfWeekly Book Club members
Pete Banning was Clanton’s favourite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family; a farmer, father, and a faithful member of the Methodist Church. Then one cool October morning in 1946, he rose early, drove into town, walked into the Church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell.
As if the murder wasn’t shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Pete’s only statement about it - to the sheriff, to his defense attorney, to the judge, to his family and friends and to the people of Clanton - was ‘I have nothing to say’.
What turned Pete from a pillar of the community into a cold-hearted killer? And why won’t he confide in anyone? All his closest family knows is that it must have been something devastating – and that the fallout will haunt them, and the town, for decades to come . . .
