When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals a decades-old tragedy, 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 reveals the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered.

And for the third, a journalist, it's the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth.

The Child's story will be told.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Clever and compelling. You'll love The Child." - Clare Mackintosh

"I loved this gripping story that kept me guessing to the end. Barton treats her broken characters with such compassion that I wanted to reach into the pages and hug them." - Liz Nugent, author of Lying in Wait

"Fiona Barton has outdone herself with The Child. An engrossing, irresistible story about the coming to light of a long-buried secret. An absolutely fabulous read - I loved it!" - Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door

"Tense, tantalising and ultimately very satisfying . . . definitely one of the year's must-reads." - Lee Child

"This expertly executed thriller, full of gritty authentic detail, is made even better by a killer twist that will catch you off guard." - Sunday Mirror
