Crime / Mystery Thriller and Suspense

The Suspect From the No. 1 bestselling author of Richard & Judy Book Club hit The Child Synopsis

`The police belonged to another world - the world they saw on the television or in the papers. Not theirs.'

When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing on their gap year in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft and frantic with worry. Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth - and this time is no exception. But she can't help but think of her own son, who she hasn't seen in two years, since he left home to go travelling. This time it's personal. And as the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think . . .

The Suspect From the No. 1 bestselling author of Richard & Judy Book Club hit The Child Press Reviews

A fast-paced whodunnit with heart, characters I feel I know and a deliciously dark twist. Superb writing, often blackly funny, and a scene that made me cry into my pillow. - Gillian McAllister, Sunday Times bestselling author of EVERYTHING BUT THE TRUTH

Fiona Barton is a master of `just one more chapter' and kept me reading late into the night, unable to look away. The Suspect is a wonderfully human thriller, with characters I believed entirely and a crime that got right under my skin. - Holly Seddon, bestselling author of TRY NOT TO BREATHE

Fiona Barton has done it again. A stylish, beautifully written and perfectly pitched thriller that will have you racing to the denouement - Cara Hunter, author of Sunday Times bestseller CLOSE TO HOME

Wow, Fiona Barton really knows her stuff; The Suspect is utterly authentic, terrifyingly plausible and an absolute heartbreaker. - Jill Mansell

In The Suspect, Fiona Barton has created a beautifully crafted and intricate novel where we see every situation from every perspective until her final twist of the kaleidoscope when everything suddenly makes sense. The characters in this beautifully written novel will stay with me for a long time and the tension created by the twists and cliff-hangers made this a breath-taking and heart-pounding read. - Mary Torjussen
