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…

Thankyou Tracy Fenton for the invite to be a part of The Curfew’s blog tour, and to Zaffre for sending me a finished hardback to read in preparation for this tour.
Talk about book that packs a thrilling punch! The Curfew, is set to have your heart beating a little faster, and you owl awake until early hours of the morning as you make your way through the Unravelling of events surrounding the disappearance of a young teenager. With everyone pointing the finger at Connor, Andy and Laura’s son, they’re choice as a parent is to stand together and dig to find evidence of innocence.
It begins with a curfew, a rite of passage in any parent-child relationship. A milestone and a pillar of trust. When Connor misses curfew by 2.5 hours, and the news of a missing child from his school, Andy takes it upon himself to uncover the truth of the situation. As he begins to dig, things he didn’t know about his son begin to float to the surface, ones that should wobble his trust in Connor but also ones that motivates Andy to inject himself further into the investigation. As a parent myself, I would have acted the same as Andy, the first job is to protect your child at all costs. Right?
The relatively short chapters of The Curfew, had me compulsively reading, needing to be satisfied that X was resolved, or that we’d get the answer to Y in the next chapter. I was like a fish on a hook, and T.M Logan was the person teasing me with his well-crafted storyline, and addictive chapter arrangements.
The chapters flowed into one another seamlessly, with characters who were three-dimensional and, especially with Connor’s parents, you felt a sense of empathy for what they were going through, as well as the other characters involved within the circle of friends and parents. The Curfew is the first book that I’ve read by T.M Logan and I can say, I was entertained right until the final page! I found the untying of the mystery perfectly paced, tapping into the nightmare of parents and then wrapped up in a fantastic way that left no stray threads dangling. It goes to show how careful every detail was planned, researched and placed. Bravo T.M Logan!
Do yourself a favour, and grab yourself a copy of this book (along with some midnight snacks, you’ll need them!)
