The story will be told
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.
I enjoyed how well Barton wove everything together and how satisfying it was at the end - if not slightly traumatic and slightly tear jerking.
It’s not often I shed a tear when I read a crime novel but I did with this one, and it came from an unexpected place.
Full of twists and turns, The Child is a great sophomore book from author Fiona Barton. I was on the edge of my seat all the way to the final secret revealed.
A gripping, intense, suspenseful thriller. The twists, turns, and red herrings that Ms. Barton has written, certainly do throw you off course, more than once.
