Paper Ghosts : The unputdownable chilling thriller from The Sunday Times bestselling author of Black Eyed Susans Hardback
THE CHILLING NEW THRILLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER BLACK-EYED SUSANSTHE SUNDAY TIMES CRIME THRILLER OF THE MONTH---------- My Sister disappeared. I know who took her. Now I've taken him. ----------Carl Louis Feldman is an old man who once took photographs.
That was before he was tried for murder and acquitted.
Before dementia and his admission to a Texas care facility. Now his daughter has come to see him, to take him on a trip.
Only she's not his daughter, and, if she has her way, he's not coming back . . . Because Carl's past has finally caught up with him.
The woman driving the car is convinced he's guilty, and that he's killed other young women.
Including her sister Rachel. Now they're driving across Texas, following his photographs, his clues, his crimes.
To see if he remembers any of it. To discover what happened to Rachel. Has Carl truly forgotten what he did or is he just pretending?
Perhaps he's guilty of nothing and she's the liar. Either way, in driving him into the Texan badlands she's taking a terrible risk. For if Carl really is a serial killer, she's alone in the most dangerous place of all . . . 'Utterly compelling . . . the writing is mesmeric' Ali Land, Sunday Times bestselling author of Good Me Bad Me 'This book haunted me . . . The writing is beautiful and chilling, laced with a subtle dark humour, and the multiple twists build to a perfect icy shiver of an ending.
I loved it!' C J Tudor, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man 'Strong characterisation, haunting images, a wonderful sense of place' Guardian 'A rich hybrid work that's at once a zany dialogue-propelled town-hander, a murder mystery, a road trip, a pair of psychological case studies and a meditation on photography' Sunday Times Paperback Round Up'My crime novel of 2018.
It's a stunning page turner of a book which kept me gripped throughout.
It's a book that has stayed with me beyond the last chapter and I'm recommending it to everyone' Jo Jakeman, author of Sticks and Stones
