Fiona Barton is the author behind the blockbuster phenomenon The Widow—a featured Skimm Read of 2016!
On June 27, she returns with a brand-new novel of twisting psychological suspense, The Child.
In a working class neighborhood of London, construction workers make a grisly discovery: the long-buried remains of a baby. When a newspaper mention reveals the find, most readers barely give it a glance. But for two women, its threat to unearth hidden stories is impossible to ignore. For veteran reporter, Kate Waters (introduced in The Widow), it sparks the question ‘Who would bury a baby?’ and starts a hunt for the truth about the nameless child.
theSkimm called The Widow “your new Gone Girl.” The Child ups the ante. And you’re the first to get an inside look.
