Taut, menacing, sinister, gripping, intelligent, action-packed – everything you could want from a thriller.
When ex-LAPD patrol cop Jack Whalen’s wife goes missing on a routine business trip to Seattle, his world is shaken.
Meanwhile, a ten-year-old girl vanishes from a beach in Oregon after an encounter with a sinister stranger – but it gradually becomes clear that she’s very far from defenceless.
Searching for answers in the shadowy secrets of a past that still haunts him, Jack discovers that the truth has roots deeper and darker than he ever feared.Review:
‘A jaw-dropping mystery that makes a hairpin turn on nearly every page’ Entertainment Weekly
‘A good, taut thriller, with lots of action and a very gripping ending; Marshall takes the reader with him on the investigation with a great deal of guile and style.’ Guardian
‘Devilishly clever ... a tautly crafted page-turner of the highest order.’ Bookpage
‘Bestseller Marshall outdoes his own high standards with this potent blend of suspense, paranoia and just plain creepiness ... a provocative and supremely intelligent thriller’ Publishers Weekly
‘Captures a sense of the menacing inevitable ... one of the more bracingly depressing tales of mystery and terror to have been published in recent years’ Time Out
‘Subtle, satisfying – and really scary.’ Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Michael Marshall:
'A definite page-turner – and a terrifying discourse on the nature of human evil and the darkness among us ... this is as fierce as thriller writing can get.' Guardian
‘The taut pace, crisp style and ever-present sense of menace are those of a top-drawer thriller.’ Telegraph
‘Marshall is a cracker at writing tense, rich scenes.’ Observer
‘Just when you think there’s nothing new under the sun in the world of the suspense novel, along comes one hell of a nasty spider called The Straw Men. It’s brilliantly written and scary as hell. Be the first on your block to stay up all night with this one; it’s a masterpiece, reminding us that even paranoids really do have enemies.’ Stephen King
