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 . . .

Chilling and utterly gripping. Loved the twists and the well-drawn everyday details. A fantastic new book from the Queen of Creepy
Will Dean, bestselling author of Red Snow
The Other People is a creepy, intense novel that drew me right in and never let go. C. J. Tudor's books keep getting better and better, and this one won't let you stop reading until the very last page!
Samantha Downing, author of My Lovely Wife
Hugely enjoyable and deliciously creepy. I was hooked from its gripping opening, all the way through its many twists and turns. Ostensibly about a man searching for his missing daughter, it's a tale about loss, where nothing is quite as it seems; and, although you may think you've got it worked out, C. J. Tudor is always several steps ahead. A brilliant storyteller.
Alex Michaelides, author of The Silent Patient
Her books have the ability to simultaneously make you unable to stop reading while wishing you could bury the book somewhere deep underground where it can't be found anymore. Compelling and haunting
An intense novel that gets right to the heart of what it means to love and to grieve. Intriguing, dramatic and heart-breaking
Woman & Home
A father's desperate search for his vanished daughter provides the beating heart of this complex thriller, which is suffused with loss, longing and vengeance. Touches of the supernatural bring an extra dimension to the spine-tingling thrills
A darkly compelling tale of justice, revenge and the darkness lurking at the edges of everyday life - with an utterly propulsive plot that makes it very, very hard to put down
T. M. Logan, bestselling author of The Holiday
C. J. Tudor is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. She has such a gift for storytelling. Couldn't turn the pages fast enough
Fiona Cummins, author of The Rattle
C. J. Tudor's best novel to date. This tale of the lengths some people will go to to ease their grief was utterly emotionally believable while still treading at the edges of the worlds of Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Gripping and thoroughly entertaining. I can't wait to see what she does next
It's rare to read something so downright terrifying but C.J. Tudor manages it time and again. The Other People grabs you by the throat and keeps on squeezing till the very last page. Clever. Original. Brilliant
Paul Burke, author of The Burning Men
I adored The Other People. I was absolutely gripped from start to finish. Deliciously dark, with realistic characters that you simultaneously root for, then recoil from
Excellent. A clever, tense and touching novel
Sets the bar high for every other thriller this year
Diabolically clever and propulsive as a rollercoaster. If you like twisty thrillers that leave you guessing till the very last page, this is a must-read
Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger and The Deep
Another black fist of doom, smashing into the feeble world . . . loved it!
Such intricate and enthralling storytelling. Evocative and creepy
