They went looking for a story. What they found was a nightmare.

It started as nothing, just a scary story passed around between schoolchildren. But for Sadie and her friends, the rumours soon became an unhealthy obsession - and the darkness all too real.

Years later, Sadie's teenage daughter Amber has been charged with murder, and her trial shocks the world. How could such a young girl commit such a terrible crime?

It seems the secrets of Sadie's past have come back to haunt her daughter. And the terrifying truth of what happened all those years ago is finally about to come out . . .

Praise for this book

"Do not use this book as a cure for insomnia. It turns shadows into threats. A brilliantly creepy, twisty story." - Julia Crouch

"From the second I opened this book, I wanted to know the truth about the Tall Man. Was he real? What did he make people do? Was it possible to escape? I couldn't put the book down until I knew. An unsettling, original page-turner you'll still be thinking about long after you reach the end." - Amy Engel

"Brilliant, chilling and compelling. I can't stop thinking about it!" - Karen Hamilton

"Mesmerizing and terrifying - The Tall Man more than lives up to the hype." - Chris Whitaker
