We’re beyond thrilled to see the UK publication of the The Gathering by C. J. Tudor. Described as ‘menacing and claustrophobic’, this ‘ice-cold chiller’ follows a detective investigating a grisly crime in rural Alaska, where she finds herself caught up in the dark secrets and superstitions of a small town.

C. J. Tudor is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man, The Taking of Annie Thorne, The Other People, The Burning Girls and The Drift. All of her books are in development or optioned for TV, and The Burning Girls debuted on Paramount Plus in 2023. She is also the author of a short story collection, A Sliver of Darkness.

The Gathering has already received rave reviews ahead of publication:

C.J. Tudor is getting better and bolder with every novel, and the bar was pretty high to start with. THE GATHERING is an incredibly exciting novel, tightly plotted and brilliantly tense, with an atmosphere you could eat with a spoon — STUART TURTON

A crime thriller with a vampiric twist. What a cracking read and such assured writing. She just gets better and better! — SARAH PINBOROUGH

Tudor slays with this brilliantly imaginative take on the vampire genre. This genre is tailor made for her. It’s as if it’s her own invention. There’s nothing she can’t turn her hand to. Fangbloodytastic — JOHN MARRS

So menacing and claustrophobic. Ice cold and darkly bloody. I loved it. Bravo, C.J. Tudor, you are the Queen of Horror — LOUISE SWANSON

A peerless blend of thriller and horror, with darkness and danger pouring from every page. Cuts right to the heart of the evil some are capable of, and the consequences that come crashing down. Powered through it in twenty-four hours — ROBERT RUTHERFORD
