When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals the remains of a baby, buried many years ago, unearthed at a construction site, 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’s the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered.
And for a third, a journalist, it’s the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth.
The Child’s story will be told.
“Clever and compelling. You’ll love THE CHILD”
Clare Mackintosh, Sunday Times bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You
“Tense, tantalising, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads.”
“This gripping story kept me guessing to the end. I loved it! Barton treats her broken characters with such compassion that I wanted to reach into the pages and hug them.”
Liz Nugent, author of Unravelling Oliver
“Fiona Barton has outdone herself with The Child. An engrossing, irresistible story about the coming to light of a long-buried secret and an absolutely fabulous read—I loved it!”
Shari Lapena, author of No.1 Sunday Times bestseller The Couple Next Door
