    It's no secret that I have struggled with reading thrillers of any kind in 2019, so I've developed a habit of steering clear of them for the past 6 months. Whether it be due to my hiatus from the genre, or the appeal that the author's writing holds for me, I found this read to be a knockout amongst a sea of cookie cutter stories. As hold's true to Tudor's prior novels, this one does have a supernatural aspect, but more on that later. Even with the paranormal bit, The Other People feels the most like a ...more

    Definitely not your run of the mill thriller by any stretch.

    The Chalk Man was one of my favorites in 2018 and I was thrilled to get my hands on this early release!

    My attention was captured from the very first chapter. Page-turner alert!  The Prologue gave me all the spookish vibes and intrigue that carries throughout the book - All the way to the very end.

    The creepy factor is center stage, but there is also an emotional story of a family that suffers los/>The

    I was thrilled when I was offered an advanced review copy of CJ Tudor's "The Other People" and the book did not disappoint. Once the book started, I didn't want to put it down until I finished it. So much of what happens in the book could happen in real life and that's the worst kind of scary to me. 

    We are seeing things from three different perspectives, until they come together and we understand how each person's story relates to the other two stories. Also there is a supernatural a

    "She sleeps. A pale girl in a white room. Machines surround her. Mechanical guardians...their steady beeps and the laboured sound of her breathing are the sleeping girl's only lullabies...A small piano...in one corner of the room...A sharp "C" suddenly fills the room...The shell trembles...Somewhere, another girl falls."

    I. HAVEN'T read this book yet -- but am happy to mail it to another reader on this site who wants it ---
    who will write a review --
    KNOWING the print is VERY SMALL. The print is also faded in many spots.

    I can't read the print THIS small --(smaller than any physical book I've ever read) ---
    but if you know you CAN handle the print -- happy to send it to you --happy to pay the postage.

    My favourite so far this one was creepy, intense and very clever - throwing in beautifully placed little twists of character and circumstance whilst telling an emotionally charged story about love, loss and everything inbetween.

    Most excellent. Fuller review near publication.

    The Other People is CJ Tudors third Book. I think it is her best book yet, she pulls you into the book by her superb story telling. Complex and compelling, you won’t want to put this book down.

    A fantastically spooky thriller full of tension and suspense! This books asks lots of questions and won't tell you the answers until the end and even then it might not tell you them all. If you like a touch of the supernatural with your gritty thriller then this is for you. It follows the story of Gabe as he deals with the aftermath of the murder of his wife and daughter - a man who is held together by a sort of a hopeless hope and the glimpse of his daughter in the back of another car. He haunt ...more

    Another engrossing read from C. J. Tudor!

    THE OTHER PEOPLE. Talking to them can be deadly.

    Terrible things happen as Gabe well knows. He has a BIG secret that's been hidden for many years, even from wife Jenny, and the lies to keep her from knowing has greatly strained their marriage.

    But now exposure seems imminent as tragedy has again entered his life. Gabe will never stop searching..ever..for his little girl....even after they say she is dead....even after the burial.

    THE OTHER PEOPLE is an intriguing multi-layered story with a mysterious Samaritan, a bitburial.

    marriage.

    deadly.

    Tudor!
