"CJ Tudor’s assured debut novel"

CJ Tudor’s assured debut novel, The Chalk Man (Michael Joseph, £12.99), is a timeslip set in a market town on the south coast of England. In 1986, the narrator Eddie Adams is 12 years old, building dens, riding bikes and communicating in a secret code of chalk figures with his friends Fat Gav, Metal Mickey, Hoppo and Nicky...Strong characterisation, plenty of plot twists and an evocative portrait of small-town life in the 1980s add up to a riveting read.
