THE CHILD (Berkley Paperback Reprint; March 6, 2018) reaffirms Barton’s growing reputation as a writer of rich, character-driven suspense novels. Like Tana French, Louise Penny, and Megan Abbott, Barton’s stories do more than thrill: they explore the complexities of a changing world.

In a working class neighborhood of London, construction workers make a grisly discovery: the long-buried remains of a baby.  When a newspaper mention reveals the find, most readers barely give it a glance. But for two women, its threat to unearth hidden stories is impossible to ignore. For veteran reporter, Kate Waters (introduced in The Widow), it sparks the question “Who would bury a baby?” and starts a hunt for the truth about the nameless child. The story unfolds via the women’s alternating perspectives to eventually reveal: Who is Building Site Baby?

Though THE CHILD delivers an evocative look at the changing face of journalism, and a delicious plot twist, it is the characters’ haunting and rich emotional lives that set Barton apart and confirm her stature as a crime novelist of the first order.

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

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

“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

“Satisfying…. Long after their secrets are revealed, the author’s compassion for her wounded
characters lingers.”—People

“Ultimately, Barton tells the child’s story as only she can—brilliantly.”—Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

“Multiple narratives mean non-stop action in THE CHILD. . . . the spliced action-narration is an excellent way of reminding you that no crime affects just one person.”—
