Product description

Book Description

An outstanding new thriller from Alex North, author of THE WHISPER MAN - gripping, moving and brilliantly creepy --This text refers to the paperback edition.


Alex North has outdone himself. As terrifying as a great horror novel, as unpredictable as the best type of crime novel and above all beautifully written, The Shadow Friend is the work of a writer who is an absolute master of his craft. I couldn't begin to guess how the story was going to end but I enjoyed every second of the journey -- Jane Casey

If you liked The Whisper Man, you'll love this. Alex North has crafted a second novel which is just as gripping as his first and even scarier. Hugely atmospheric and deliciously creepy, it's about how the past encroaches on the present, and how dreaming influences reality, until in the frightening world of The Shadow Friend, it becomes harder and harder to tell one from the other... and the nightmare takes over -- Alex Michaelides, No.1 bestselling author of The Silent Patient

This is absorbing, headlong reading, a play on classic horror with an inventiveness of its own... As with all the best illusions, you are left feeling not tricked, but full of wonder -- New York Times

North has returned with another creepy, atmospheric tale exploring the devastating effects of childhood traumas on communities . . . Builds to a surprising and moving finale that will live long in the memory, Daily Express

With echoes of the chilling Slender Man myth, this thriller ultimately feels like a ghost story conjured out of guilt and loss, Crime Monthly

North follows up his sensational debut, 2019's The Whisper Man, with another terrifying spine-tingler... The complex plot shifts smoothly between past and present with numerous unexpected twists. An overwhelming atmosphere of doom and disaster hovers over the perennial darkness of the nearby woods. This heart-pounding page-turner is impossible to put down, Publishers Weekly

The layers of deception make for a chilling read, Woman & Home

A chilling read, Woman's Weekly

Included in 'The Week's Best Books - The Creepy One', Heat --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
