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
So chilling I had to put it aside for the few days I was home alone... Genuinely scary, The Tall Man carefully walks the line between psychosis and the paranormal, never quite letting the reader know its truth
Absolutely brilliant - bravo
This summer's scariest thriller. If you liked Emma Cline's cult hit The Girls, you'll love The Tall Man - an addictive blend of psychological suspense and spine-tingling chills
Set to become a must-read summer chiller
Spine-tingling... It cleverly veers between that which is real and imagined, leaving the reader to make their own mind up as to who - or what - is really behind this creepy tale of psychological suspense
Twisty, creepy and very, very unsettling, it was worth every minute of lost sleep!
A must-read this summer!
This was so good, and the twists utterly brilliant! Loved it!
A gripping blend of dark psychological suspense and spine-tingling chills
Outstanding. A chilling, relentless and needle-sharp thriller that will stay with you long after you reach the final page
What a creepy and compelling debut - fantastic!
A really superior, creepy, insidious thriller. I loved it
Mesmerizing and terrifying - The Tall Man more than lives up to the hype
Loved this book. Utterly creepy and atmospheric
I absolutely smashed through this book. Terrifying and incredibly well written. If you're in the mood for something truly unnerving, you HAVE to read this!
I could not put this book down! A deliciously dark, twisty, absorbing plot which masterfully blurs the line between imagination and reality, this will stay with you long after you've read the final page
So creepy and chilling. Loved it!
A compelling story that is original, cleverly plotted and brilliantly told. I was totally hooked
Genuinely scary contemporary novels are rare but Phoebe Locke's debut - a taut, complex but brilliantly constructed supernatural thriller - is not one to be read alone at bedtime [...] The writing is deft, the twists unpredictable, the tension unrelenting. Recommended
Do not use this book as a cure for insomnia. It turns shadows into threats. A brilliantly creepy, twisty story
Brilliant, chilling and compelling. I can't stop thinking about it!
If you read just one psychological suspense novel this year, make it Phoebe Locke's The Tall Man. A creepy legend, the disappearance of a young mother and a teenage girl acquitted of murder... think that sounds like a recipe for a brilliant summer thriller? You're right. Simmering with eerie mystery and dark tension, it'll have you checking under the bed before you turn off the light. The Tall Man should be right at the top of your June '18 TBR list.
