Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.
This week I’ve chosen:
The Shadow Friend by Alex North.
If it had happened to you, you would have run away too.
Twenty-five years ago, Paul’s friend Charlie Crabtree brutally killed their classmate – and then vanished without a trace.
Paul’s never forgiven himself for his part in what happened. He’s never gone back home.
Until his elderly mother has a fall. It’s finally time to stop running.
It’s not long before things start to go wrong. His mother claims there’s someone in the house. Paul realises someone is following him. And, in a town many miles away, a copycat killer has struck.
Which makes him wonder – what really happened to Charlie the day of the murder?
And can anyone stop it happening again?
The Shadow Friend is published by Michael Joseph and scheduled for UK release on July 9th, 2020. I absolutely loved the previous book by Alex North, The Whisper Man, it was one of, if not my favourite book of 2019 (if you have even a passing interest in thrillers then I highly recommend that you check it out. Everything about it is just perfection) and I cannot wait for The Shadow Friend, my expectations are sky-high, the cover is stunning, I want it now!
