THE MUST-READ RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK. Chilling, moving and unputdownable, The Memory Wood is a thriller like no other.
'Beautifully told, with two superbly drawn young protagonists, Lloyd is a rare new thriller talent' Daily Mail
'Superbly creepy, with an unexpected twist' Guardian
'Brilliant writing, a terrifying story, and characters so real it feels like you know them. If you enjoy dark, twisty thrillers that stay with you, read this book' Samantha Downing, author of My Lovely Wife
Elijah has lived in the Memory Wood for as long as he can remember. It's the only home he's ever known.
Elissa has only just arrived. And she'll do everything she can to escape.
When Elijah stumbles across thirteen-year-old Elissa, in the woods where her abductor is hiding her, he refuses to alert the police. Because in his twelve years, Elijah has never had a proper friend. And he doesn't want Elissa to leave.
Not only that, Elijah knows how this can end. After all, Elissa isn't the first girl he's found inside the Memory Wood.
As her abductor's behaviour grows more erratic, chess prodigy Elissa realises that outwitting strange, lonely Elijah is her only hope of survival. Their cat-and-mouse game of deception and betrayal will determine both their fates, and whether either of them will ever leave the Memory Wood . . .

Remarkable. Stunning prose and compulsive reading. It's undoubtedly the best thriller I've read in a long, long time. ― Lesley Kara
What makes this book special is the marvellously executed subterranean power game. Superbly creepy, with an unexpected twist, this is a very grim modern fairytale. ― Guardian

Thirteen-year-old Elissa is drugged and kidnapped at a chess tournament. She wakes up manacled to the wall in a filthy and cold cellar.
Elijah is a twelve-year-old boy who visits her in her dungeon. He says he wants to help, but is he all that he seems?
Mairaed is the detective in charge of the operation to find Elissa. She works with determination despite living through her own personal tragedy.
The first half of the book reminded me of The Collector by John Fowles. There was a gripping, painful, awkward battle of wills between chess champion Elissa and her unpredictable visitor, Elijah.
In the second half, the mental battle moved elsewhere when each heart-pounding revelation was followed by an even bigger shocker.
Not only is Sam Lloyd a terrific plotter, he is an accomplished writer. The narration was so smooth, I took it for granted as I raced through, eager to find out what would happen next.
This must surely become one of the biggest hits of this surreal year.
