Synopsis

'If you like my stuff, you'll like this' Stephen King

A DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR - 'A frightening Stephen King-esque coming-of-age story cum murder mystery. With new crime writers this dark, the future is bright'

A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR - 'There are shades of Stephen King in this very creepy timeslip'
___________

It was only meant to be a game . . .


None of us ever agreed on the exact beginning.


Was it when we started drawing the chalk figures, or when they started to appear on their own?


Was it the terrible accident?


Or when they found the first body?

Penguin Books

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
