"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"--… (lisätietoja)

Good story. Lots of twists. ( )

Well paced and kept my attention. I didn't realize that some of the characters were shared with the Widow because for some reason I could not continue reading that book. I felt no empathy for The Widow although I felt all sorts of empathy for almost every character in this book. ( )

A infant's skeleton is found at a building site. Two women believe they are the child's mother. ( )

I devoured this psychological thriller. Four characters with converging storylines take turns telling the story as we try to figure out the identity of a newborn's skeleton dislodged at a construction site. Reporter Kate Waters from author Fiona Barton's "The Widow" is back, in finer, more humane form in this story. Barton does a fine job painting the four main characters in this book, and does an equally compelling job with the secondary ones. The pacing and beat of the vibe in this thriller is definitely softer and more cozy than your typical top-notch thrillers, but in this case, I think it works. I didn't see the twist ending coming although looking back, I feel like I should have guessed! I like this one enough to seek out Barton's third book. ( )

I really loved this because the protagonist, Kate Waters, is an old school reporter who gets the goods and works with police when she reaches a journalist's limit. The contrast drawn between traditional investigative reporting and today's lack of depth and technique in most journalism made me smile....often! Barton did a great job spinning this yarn through different characters' points of view, leaving little hints as the mystery builds and unravels. Don't want to spoil it, so I'll say no more -- except ENJOY!

FIONA BARTON’S debut novel The Widow was a bestseller last year and her second psychological thriller deserves to follow suit...It is gruesomely compelling, mawkish and macabre with abundant twists and turns to keep the interest levels high...The Child is not only a fast-paced missing baby yarn it also casts light on how people can manipulate and lie until someone such as Waters exposes their true natures.
 
Enjoyable as those scenes are, however, the rest of “The Child” should have been sent to the publishing equivalent of Kate’s rewrite desk....“The Child” is a middling and much-too-long suspense story that would have benefited from a ruthless red-pencil. As she did in “The Widow,” Barton relies on multiple points of view to tell (and retell) the larger story of the “Building Site Baby” as the unidentified infant comes to be known....“The Child” isn’t a terrible novel; it’s simply much too much of a just okay one.
 
Some books tell you a great deal, while other books show even more. I'm happy to report that Fiona Barton's second novel, The Child, falls firmly into the second camp....The Child is told from several perspectives — in this case, Kate's, a grieving mother named Angela, and a younger wife named Emma who is afflicted with terrible anxiety. Kate is looking for a story. Angela is looking for closure. Emma isn't sure what she's looking for, but she knows the answer lies in her past as the daughter of a single mother named Jude.. You're in medias res with Kate, Angela, and Emma, and the spliced action-narration is an excellent way of reminding you that no crime affects just one person, and each person it affects has many other people in her life. The frequent, fast chapters (86 of them!) highlight all of those people and their daily routines.
