The Other People


By C. J. Tudor


A 2023 Top Rated Read

Gabe spends all his time searching for his five-year-old daughter who was snatched three years ago. He last saw her through the rear window of a car. She mouthed the word 'Daddy' to him. The police believe she's dead but Gabe won't accept it and his search has consumed his life. His days (and nights) are spent on the motorway and in service stations. He's given up his job, sold his house and now lives in a camper van but refuses to give up hope. After all, hope is all he has left.

I love C. J. Tudor's books — they're wonderfully dark, creepy and loaded with twists and turns. The journey she takes you on never fails to disappoint. The Other People was fantastic and I have no hesitation in saying it's one of my favourite reads this year. The characters are fully developed and it's easy to empathise with Gabe and his desperate situation. It's every parent's worst nightmare. With a plot that causes anxiety and sleepless nights, I thought it was an excellent read.

Driving home one night, Gabe sees the face of a little girl he knows in the rear window of the car in front. She mouths one word - 'Daddy'.

He never sees his five-year-old daughter, Izzy, again.

The police believe she's dead. But three years later, Gabe still drives the roads, searching for the car that took Izzy, never giving up hope . . .

Fran and her daughter, Alice, aren't searching - but running. Always one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them.

Because Fran knows the truth about Gabe's daughter - and she knows what those chasing her and Alice will do if they ever catch them . . .
