Left Bank Books presents author Fiona Barton, who will sign and discuss her new suspense novel, The Child (Berkley Books, June 2017), on Thursday, July 20, 7pm, at Left Bank Books (399 N. Euclid). This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Child from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
Fiona Barton, author of the global phenomenon The Widow, returns with The Child, 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. 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. 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 its greatest mystery.
The Child was named one of Time magazine’s “Top 10 Thrillers to Read This Summer.” Bestselling author Lee Child calls The Child “tense, tantalizing, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads,” and a starred review from Publishers Weekly says, “Readers…will be rewarded with startling twists and a stunning, emotionally satisfying conclusion.”
Fiona Barton was a senior writer at the Daily Mail, news editor at The Daily Telegraph, and chief reporter at The Mail on Sunday, where she won Reporter of the Year at the British Press awards.
Fiona Barton will discuss The Child, answer questions, and sign books. This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Child from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. Books for signing are available from Left Bank Books in advance or at the event. For more information, call 314.367.6731 or visit left-bank.com. M
