'Clever and compelling. You'll love The Child' Clare Mackintosh, author of LET ME LIE
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.
If you love Claire Douglas and Shari Lapena, you'll love The Child!
