The sun has risen on the UK publication day for The Child by Fiona Barton!


We’re always singing Fiona’s praises, so we will let others do the talking today. And they have lots to say about The Child:


Clever and compelling. You’ll love THE CHILD”
Clare Mackintosh, Sunday Times bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You


“Tense, tantalising, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads.”
Stephen King


“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, author of No.1 Sunday Times bestseller The Couple Next Door


‘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


‘Barton, the best-selling author of The Widow, weaves a lightning-paced, twisty story with an ending so surprising you might have to read it twice.’

Good Housekeeping


A novel that is both fast-paced and thought-provoking, it keeps the reader guessing right to the end. The Child truly is the best of both worlds.

USA Today


a brilliant page-turner’
