The Unheard (Paperback)Nicci French (author)
The thriller writing powerhouse that is Nicci French delivers another pulsating page-turner, as a child’s drawing sparks fears of a tragic incident in her mother’s past.
Tess's number one priority has always been her three-year-old daughter Poppy. But splitting up with Poppy's father Jason means that she cannot always be there to keep her daughter safe.
When she finds a disturbing drawing, dark and menacing, among her daughter's brightly coloured paintings, Tess is convinced that Poppy has witnessed something terrible. Something that her young mind is struggling to put into words.
But no one will listen. It's only a child's drawing, isn't it?
Tess will protect Poppy, whatever the price. But when she doesn't know what, or who, she is protecting her from, how can she possibly know who to trust ...?

'I love Nicci French's books, and with The Unheard they are right at the top of their game. Few crime writers can match their psychological acuity, of their ability to lead a reader through dizzying plot twists without ever losing pace. It's an absolute masterclass of crime writing' - Kate Rhodes, author of the Locked-Island Mystery series
'What an intriguing, compelling page-turner. I ate it up in two days' - Liz Nugent, author of Our Little Cruelties
