As the nights draw in, what more could readers want than a wonderfully gruesome short story collection from bestselling author C.J. Tudor? Fear not, A Sliver of Darkness is published today (Penguin Michael Joseph).

A group of survivors wash up on a deserted island only to make a horrifying discovery, a cold-hearted killer befriends a strange young girl at a motorway service station, eerie country lanes twist through a world gone dark, a block of flats holds the most monstrous of occupants…these stories are guaranteed to keep you up at night!

C.J. Tudor is the author of four bestselling thrillers which have sold over 400,000 copies worldwide: The Chalk Man, The Taking of Annie Thorne, The Other People, and The Burning Girls. We can’t wait for fans to discover her brilliant latest project, which has already been attracting rave reviews:

‘All hail the queen of scream. C.J. Tudor at her spine-tingling, nightmare-inducing best. Read it if you dare…’ Chris Whitaker

‘Beautifully barbaric, creepy as hell and crammed with barbed wit’ John Marrs

‘A decadent and phantasmagorical descent into the dark chasm where I first fell in love with horror fiction. Told with real heart along with daemonic savagery, these are stories to luxuriate with in the tenebrous’ Matt Wesolowski

Congratulations, C.J.! And readers in the US don’t have long to wait, as A Sliver of Darkness publishes on November 8th – pre-order here!
