內容簡介

費歐娜.巴頓(Fiona Barton)繼一鳴驚人之作《只有她知道》(The Widow)之後,又一峰迴路轉的心理懸疑力作。被發現的嬰兒骨骸,如何爆發出數十年前隱藏在三個女人之間的秘密?

《時人》、《娛樂周刊》、《時代雜誌》、《波士頓環球報》等報章雜誌一致讚譽,今年最讓人引頸期待的驚悚小說之一。

「The Child是海灘讀物與讀書俱樂部選書的絕佳混合體,是巴頓暢銷首作小說的精采延續…。一本快節奏又激發思考的小說,它讓讀者一直猜到最後。」-《今日美國》(USA Today)

「The Child的多重敘事意味著不停歇的行動…,一如她的同儕小說家們,費歐娜.巴頓知道展示優於訴說,因為它允許讀者的詮釋…,不管結局會引來震撼或是一聲”啊哈”,這都不重要;為了發現真相而作的努力就足以讓人心滿意足。」-《全國公共廣播電台》(NPR.org)

倫敦社區改造的一角,一棟老房子被拆毀殆盡,工人發現了一塊埋葬多年的瘦小骨骸。對新聞記者Kate Waters來說,這是一個值得關注的故事,她拼湊出一條新聞,卻找不出答案,因此只能提出一個問題:那個工地嬰孩到底是誰?

在Kate調查的過程中,她發現了數十年前震撼整個倫敦的犯罪案件的相關事件:一個新生兒在當地醫院的產房中被偷走,並且從來沒有被尋獲。她心碎的父母因為失去嬰孩而難過不已。

Kate挨家挨戶地探訪,被曾經住在這個小區的人們所吸引,進而陷入這些人的過往當中,而他們卻已經不想再追問這個最大的謎團。三個女人之間爆發的意外秘密,Kate竟成了秘密的守護者,她到底該說還是不該說?


One of the most highly anticipated thrillers of the year—as seen in People, Entertainment Weekly, Time, USA Today, Bustle, Good Housekeeping.com, HelloGiggles, The Boston Globe, PureWow, The Dallas Morning News, and more!  
 
“The Child is a perfect blend of beach read and book club selection. It’s a fascinating and fitting follow-up to [Barton’s] best-selling debut novel, The Widow. . . .[A] page-turning whodunit….A novel that is both fast-paced and thought-provoking, it keeps the reader guessing right to the end.”—USA Today
 
“A lightning-paced, twisty story with an ending so surprising you might have to read it twice.”—GoodHousekeeping.com

“Multiple narratives mean non-stop action in The Child…Like her fellow novelists, Fiona Barton knows showing is better than telling because it allows for the reader's perspective…whether the conclusion occasions a shock or an 'aha!' doesn't matter; it's satisfying due to all the work that's gone into its discovery.”—NPR.org

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…
