The Child, Hardback Book

The Child Hardback


"Clever and compelling. You'll love THE CHILD". (Clare Mackintosh). "Tense, tantalising and ultimately very satisfying ...definitely one of the year's must-reads". (Lee Child). "An engrossing, irresistible story about the coming to light of a long-buried secret.

An absolutely fabulous read - I loved it!". (Shari Lapena). The bestselling author of 2016's breakout debut, THE WIDOW, returns with her new dark, unputdownable thriller.

When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals a decades-old tragedy, most readers barely give it a glance.

But for three strangers it's impossible to ignore. For one woman, it's a reminder of the worst thing that ever happened to her.

For another, it reveals the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered. And for the third, a journalist, it's the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth.

The Child's story will be told. "I loved this gripping story that kept me guessing to the end". (Liz Nugent). "Fiona Barton is a major new talent". (M J Arlidge).
