The Missing

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to trend on Twitter? It’s shamefully one of my #lifegoals. LOL. Like having your name in lights. Well Avon superstar author and all-round brilliant person C.L. Taylor got to experience the magic earlier this year when her gripping, unputdownable thriller THE MISSING started trending. We were practically wetting ourselves. There’s never been such excitement in the Avon office (minus birthdays when everyone brings cake). We were running around with our phones making people look! Of course THE MISSING went on to hit the much coveted Kindle #1 spot and wouldn’t budge!

C.L. Taylor is a master of the psychological thriller. Or as the exceptional Tammy Cohen says, “C.L. Taylor is the Queen of Just-One-More-Chapter Lit.” Her hundreds of thousands of fans are poised to buy the moment the book hits the shelves. Most of them don’t even wait that long and have her next book pre-ordered as soon as it appears on Amazon – they want to be the first to finish! Even those clever peeps over at The Sun couldn’t pause their reading: ‘Kept me guessing till the end’ they said, and we all know what that’s like…reading bleary-eyed till three in the morning because you JUST HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

Our lips are sealed. There are no spoilers here. One thing we can tell you is that the people of Twitter were spot on this time. THE MISSING is bang on trend!
