THE CHILD

Fiona Barton

 

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’

Claire Mackintosh
