Pre-order the darkly compelling new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk Man, The Taking of Annie Thorne and The Other People

500 years ago: eight martyrs were burnt to death
30 years ago: two teenagers vanished without trace
Two months ago: the vicar committed suicide

Welcome to Chapel Croft.

For Rev Jack Brooks and teenage daughter Flo it's supposed to be a fresh start. New job, new home. But, as Jack knows, the past isn't easily forgotten.

And in a close-knit community where the residents seem as proud as they are haunted by Chapel Croft's history, Jack must tread carefully. Ancient superstitions as well as a mistrust of outsiders will be hard to overcome.

Yet right away Jack has more frightening concerns.

Why is Flo plagued by visions of burning girls?
Who's sending them sinister, threatening messages?
And why did no one mention that the last vicar killed himself?

Chapel Croft's secrets lie deep and dark as the tomb. Jack wouldn't touch them if not for Flo - anything to protect Flo.

But the past is catching up with Chapel Croft - and with Jack. For old ghosts with scores to settle will never rest . . .

'C. J. Tudor is terrific. I can't wait to see what she does next' Harlan Coben

'Britain's female Stephen King' Daily Mail

She is now 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.

Hypnotic and horrifying, C. J. Tudor held me captive with another truly terrifying tale. Without doubt her best yet, The Burning Girls left me sleeping with the lights on Combines crime fiction with elements of gothic horror . . . Tudor operates on the border between credulity and disbelief, creating an atmosphere of menace A mesmerising and atmospheric page-turner, with plenty of shocks and a surprise twist for a finale. Her best novel yet The best book yet from C. J. Tudor A gothic, spine-tingling roller-coaster of a story that expertly weaves the tale of eight martyrs from 500 years ago with a contemporary narrative about a priest coming to terms with their past, The Burning Girls adds yet more evidence to the fact that C. J. Tudor is a master of horror It's definitely the best of Tudor's books to date, which says a lot. This is one talented author and her international reputation is well-deserved . . . This is a great novel for a dark night in a snowstorm This creepy, tense thriller, packed with twists and turns, keeps the reader immersed until the shocking conclusion Chilling . . . Mixes real historical events with fictional horror and mystery Best-selling author C. J. Tudor returns with another page-turner Mesmerising page-turner A brilliantly twisty read A real page-turner Pacey, spooky . . . the twists keep coming Creepy . . . Tudor throws everything at her reader in a complex plot Chilling Expand reviews
