Praise

Praise for The Child

“Tense, tantalizing, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads.”—Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Fiona Barton has masterfully delivered again with The Child, her follow-up to her bestselling debut novel, The Widow….So many questions, so much perfect suspense….Barton tells the child’s story as only she can—brilliantly.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“This being a Barton thriller, there’s more to pretty much everything than meets the eye.”—The Boston Globe

“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, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

“[An] intriguing, twisty tale….With plenty of red herrings, nothing and no one is who  they seem in this evocative puzzler.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A slow-burn portrait of loss and survival.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A twisty and tantalizing story you won’t be able to put down.”—Bustle

“Startling twists—and a stunning, emotionally satisfying conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A twisted psychological thriller you’ll have trouble putting down.”—People
 
“Fiona Barton’s debut novel, The Widow, is being compared to Gone Girl, Before I Go to Sleep, and The Girl on the Train. It’s actually better than them all.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“[Jean is] a fascinating puzzle…Barton knows how to ramp up tension.”—The New York Times Book Review
