    This is the second thriller this year (that I know of) to be clearly inspired by the Slender Man case. (The first being Mister Tender's Girl, which I didn't finish.) It centres on Sadie Banner, who, as a child, is introduced to the legend of a sinister figure known as 'the Tall Man' by...

    The story mainly alternates between 2016 when Amber Banner was 16 years old and in 2018, when at 18 she is taking part in a documentary following her acquittal of murder. Who was the victim and why. All sorts of scenarios rang through my mind with my list of possible victims constantly...

    The Tall Man is a fabulous book! As a big fan of paranormal thrillers did I love how the legend of the Tall Man made the basis for this book. How all three storylines in different ways had to deal with the Tall Man. But, the Tall Man is just a legend isn't he? Something to scare the li...

    Hmm. I loved the idea of this but it just felt very flat. The twist didn?t really feel like one and I wasn?t invested in any of the characters. The 1.5 stars are for the last 10% of the book. ...

    This book set over three different time periods is apparently based on the real life Slender Man case. I had to look it up as while the name felt familiar the events didn't. Now knowing a bit more I'm left more disappointed in the book that I was before I googled. The whole thing left ...

    Have you met the Tall Man? Be afraid. Be very afraid! This is one of those reviews where I?m being deliberately vague. I?m not telling you anything about the plot for fear of giving something away. All you really need to know is right there in the book description. The Tall M...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com The Tall Man is a creepy, tense story of psychological suspense and impending horror. It's gripping - I couldn't put it down and read until the early hours, immersed in Phoebe Locke's atmosphere and addictive writing. It's hard to believe this is...

    When Sadie was a little girl, she and her friends wanted to be special. The Tall Man could make them so, they thought -- he gives gifts to his special ones, and others he takes away. But sometimes he needs help. When Sadie was a woman, she had a daughter, and for a while the whispers f...

    I liked the idea but for the most part this didn't work for me. In full I found the idea of this book really appealing. The Tall Man is somewhere between a myth, a legend and fantasy - a story to scare children with maybe - or is it? "He killed his own daughter because she didn't ...

    **4.5 stars** The Tall Man devoured my whole day yesterday. It is utterly gripping from the very first moments and it is inexorably creepy and gets stuck in your head. I spent the entire evening after reading it jumping at shadows. And once, embarrassingly, at my own reflection in t...

    Book Reviewed by Nia on www.whisperingstories.com I really enjoyed this book, it kept me guessing until the very end as crucial clues were dropped in as the chapters passed. The story alternates between multiple timelines, which was borderline confusing and definitely frustrating...

    WOW I didn?t just like this book I loved it and devoured it practically in one sitting!! Glad I read this in the day as it is spine tingling creepy!!! Definitely not a book that is easy to forget, the Tall Man comes and steals daughters, is he an urban myth or is he real? Told ...

    I have to admit to being fascinated by recent media coverage of The Slender Man urbane legend and the real life case surrounding it that shocked the world. So it was with that in mind that I went into The Tall Man rather nervous about how Phoebe Locke would use a similar urbane myth to...

    This is one hell of a creepy story that compelled me to just open my eyes one more time before I went to sleep because it just unsettled my mind in so many ways, taking me back to childhood days and dark shadows in my bedroom, that seemed to move when only I was there. The Tall Man is...

    The novel opens with an internet/media based theme. ?Making the movie ? Banner family? is an upcoming documentary in July 2018. The Banner family is tied to a senseless murder, personal demons and an urban legend. Sounds great! The timeline within the novel jumps around variou...

    This was one of those titles where the synopsis just grabs you! I loved the sinister undertones that the blurb delivers. The title reminded me of the slender man internet meme and turned out to be just as creepy! I love an unsettling story and this lived up to my expectations. It quick...

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. Unsettling rather than full-blown horror, with a very clever storyline. I like! 4.5 Stars Like many people, I'm well-versed with the urban legend of the Slender Man; not to mention the real-life horr...
