It’s publication day for multi-award winning, bestselling author C.J. Tudor.

Her third unputdownable thriller, The Other People, is published in the UK today by Penguin Random House / Michael Joseph.

And there’s been a lot of excitement in the run up to publication. She has received reviews from authors such as Harlan Coben (“CJ Tudor is terrific.  I can’t wait to see what she does next.”), JP Delaney (CJ Tudor has done it again. A mesmerizingly chilling and atmospheric page-turner”), Samantha Downing (“The Other People is a creepy, intense novel that drew me right in and never let go. CJ Tudor’s books keep getting better and better, and this one won’t let you stop reading until the very last page.”) and Caz Frear (“I adored The Other People. And that’s honestly not hyperbole, I was absolutely gripped from start to finish. Deliciously dark, with realistic characters that you simultaneously root for then recoil from.”).

The Other People tells the story of Gabe, and his tireless search for his missing daughter…

She sleeps, a pale girl in a white room . . .

Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window.

She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’

It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.

He never sees her again.

Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.

Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them.

Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter. She knows who is responsible. And she knows what they will do if they ever catch up with her and Alice . . .
