Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Child

“Tense, tantalizing, and ultimately very satisfying...definitely one of the year’s must-reads.”—Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Fiona Barton has masterfully delivered again with The Child, her follow-up to her bestselling debut novel, The Widow....So many questions, so much perfect suspense….Barton tells the child’s story as only she can—brilliantly.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“This being a Barton thriller, there’s more to pretty much everything than meets the eye.”—The Boston Globe

“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, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

“[An] intriguing, twisty tale....With plenty of red herrings, nothing and no one is who  they seem in this evocative puzzler.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A slow-burn portrait of loss and survival.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A twisty and tantalizing story you won't be able to put down.”—Bustle

“Startling twists—and a stunning, emotionally satisfying conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Clever and compelling. 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
