Yes, you’ve read it right. A self published book by a relatively unknown author has made it alongside Stephen King, Paul Tremblay, Alma Katsu and Stephen Graham Jones in The Lineup’s best horror novels of 2020.
Here’s what they said:
“To say Wallwork’s novel is ominous is an understatement. Children have been going missing, completely disappearing without a single trace and no leads. The novel focuses on the different perspectives surrounding the disappearances. There’s a writer looking for the next big story to bolster his career, a detective determined to crack the case, and a secret cult that delves into the world of ritualistic murder. Wallwork has crafted a surprising and masterfully-written investigative thriller with flecks of horror.”
Bad People came out in January of this year, followed by the sequel, LABYRINTH OF THE DOLLS, in September. I’m currently writing the third in the series with a view to its release early 2021. So, if you like your thrillers dark and with elements of horror, then go check out the Tom Nolan series on Amazon. And please, if you’re a fan of horror, check out The Lineup’s other recommendations too, especially Max Booth III’s We Need to Do Something because there’s a movie adaptation coming out next year.
Keep safe and best wishes. Craig.
