Looking back, it all started on the day of the fair and the terrible accident. When twelve-year-old Eddie first met the Chalk Man. It was the Chalk Man who gave Eddie the idea for the drawings: a way to leave secret messages between his group of friends. And it was fun, to start with, until the figures led them to the body of a young girl. That was thirty years ago and Ed thought the past was behind him. Then he receives a letter containing just two things: a piece of chalk, and a drawing of a stick figure. As history begins to repeat itself, Ed realises the game was never over.
The start of the book seemed interesting and a little different than most of the books in the library. The author however wrote more and more violent episodes, which got more and more brutal. The characters in the book were initially just teenagers then progressed to adults. By the time I was a quarter way through the book the theme darken to a sexual level. I was amazed that this book should be stocked by the library.
