The Sunday Times bestselling author, C.L. Taylor, returns with the brand new thriller Strangers, out in hardback today (HarperCollins / Avon).

Strangers has received glowing praise from a string of bestselling authors and was featured in Woman & Home as Cally’s “most compelling book yet“. It was also included in the Waterstones Newsletter roundup of the “Most Anticipated Books”, and given a fantastic review: “A twisty, clever and expertly plotted new thriller from the bestselling author of Sleep… Chilling, taut and unexpected, Strangers serves up a feast of psychological suspense.” 

This story is about three strangers whose lives unexpectedly collide when they are caught up in a crime…

Ursula, Gareth and Alice have never met before.

Ursula thinks she killed the love of her life.

Gareth’s been receiving strange postcards.

And Alice is being stalked.

None of them are used to relying on others – but when the three strangers’ lives unexpectedly collide, there’s only one thing for it: they have to stick together. Otherwise, one of them will die.

Three strangers, two secrets, one terrifying evening.

The million-copy bestseller returns with a gripping new novel that will keep you guessing until the end.

Do join C.L. Taylor on her Strangers blog tour from Thursday 2nd April to Sunday 14th June. These are the upcoming dates in April.
