Synopsis

Product Description (Source: NBD):

The author of the stunning New York Times bestseller The Widow returns with a brand-new novel of twisting psychological suspense. As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers a tiny skeleton, buried for years. For journalist Kate Waters, it's a story that deserves attention. She cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building Site Baby? As Kate investigates, she unearths connections to a crime that rocked the city decades earlier: A newborn baby was stolen from the maternity ward in a local hospital and was never found. Her heartbroken parents were left devastated by the loss. But there is more to the story, and Kate is drawn--house by house--into the pasts of the people who once lived in this neighborhood that has given up its greatest mystery. And she soon finds herself the keeper of unexpected secrets that erupt in the lives of three women--and torn between what she can and cannot tell...

You'll love The Child."--Clare Mackintosh, international bestselling author of I See You Praise for The Widow An NPR Best Book of 2016 One of The Wall Street Journal's 5 "Killer Books" of the Year One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of the Year "If you liked Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, you might want to pick up The Widow by Fiona Barton. Engrossing. Suspenseful."--Stephen King "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 "[A] twisty tale...with a mesmerizing if unreliable narrator...that will blow your mind."--Oprah.com "[Jean is] a fascinating puzzle...Barton knows how to ramp up tension."--The New York Times Book Review "Both a taut reconstruction of a crime and a ruthless examination of marriage...A smartly crafted, compulsively readable tale about the lies people tell each other, and themselves, when the truth is the last thing they really want to know."--Entertainment Weekly "[Barton] delivers the goods...Richly character-driven in a way that is both satisfying and engrossing."--The Washington Post
