Your son said he was home. WHY DID HE LIE?
It’s time to preorder the brand new up-all-night thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick The Holiday, now a major TV Drama.
I should have known something was wrong. I should have sensed it. Felt it in the air, like the build-up of pressure before a thunderstorm, that heavy, loaded calm.
Andy and Laura are good parents. They tell their son Connor that he can go out with friends to celebrate completing his exams, but he must be home by midnight.
When Connor misses his curfew, it sets off a series of events that will change the lives of five families forever.
Because five teenagers went into the woods that night, but only four came out. And telling the truth might mean losing everything…
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
I have been so excited about the release of The Curfew by T.M. Logan as he’s a real favourite author of mine! The Curfew is out on March 17th but for a little taster of how brilliantly twisty his storylines are then The Holiday has been made into a 4 part tv drama on Channel 5 starting this week.
The Curfew starts with a scene that many parents of teenagers will be familiar with-waking up and not sure if and and when your teenager is home! It’s a fear I remember well and I also used to leave a light on as a sign they were home if it had been switched off. It’s a difficult time as a parent, knowing you need to show trust in your child whilst also making sure they abide by any rules set down such as curfew times. So when Laura and Andy realise that their son Connor hasn’t stuck to his curfew they aren’t happy but the reason why may be worse than they are expecting with the news that one of his teenage friends has gone missing…
T.M. Logan knows exactly what emotions families go through when it comes to difficult situations and has wound his plot cleverly around the lives of a normal family. It happens all the time in real life too where a family suddenly find themselves thrown into their worst nightmare due to an unexpected tragedy and that’s why this felt so plausible. Andy and Laura are good parents, firm but fair, likeable and fun. Their children are poles apart in personality but seem to understand and respect their parents and enjoy being part of their family dynamics. The simmering undercurrent of fear felt by Andy was palpable as was his determination to keep his son safe and I defy any parent not to understand the decisions he makes even if they don’t always agree with those choices!
The Curfew is a fast paced and gripping read cementing T.M. Logan’s place on the bestseller lists. I raced through it, desperately seeking answers to those terrible questions running through my head but then had to slow down as I couldn’t bare for it to end! Grippingly good from start to finish!
TM Logan’s thrillers have sold more than a million copies in the UK and been translated into 22 other languages for publication around the world.
His latest thriller, TRUST ME, begins when a woman is asked to look after a stranger’s baby on a train – only for the mother to vanish. When she looks in the baby’s things, she finds a note that says: ‘Please protect Mia. Don’t trust the police. Don’t trust anyone.’
THE CURFEW, coming March 2022, follows the events of a hot midsummer’s night, when five teenagers go up to the woods to celebrate the end of exams, and only four come out…
