Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2014.

One of our Books of the Year 2013.

I do love this author’s structure. We have a crime … or do we? We have a court case but what is Joanna being tried for? We have multi-voices but never a full explanation and so the plot builds in a compulsive spiral of doubt. It is not until the final pages and after twist upon twist that we are finally given a punch in the stomach, an ending that still leaves a question. Did she or didn’t she? Is she mad or not? You’ve got to read this inventive domestic drama to find out. Highly recommended, read it and then all her others, particularly The Donor. She is very special.

If you like Helen FitzGerald you might also like to read books by Neil Cross, Maggie O'Farrell and Simon Lelic.

Synopsis

The Cry by Helen FitzGerald

He's gone. And telling the truth won't bring him back...When a baby goes missing on a lonely roadside in Australia, it sets off a police investigation that will become a media sensation and dinner-table talk across the world. Lies, rumours and guilt snowball, causing the parents, Joanna and Alistair, to slowly turn against each other. Finally Joanna starts thinking the unthinkable: could the truth be even more terrible than she suspected? And what will it take to make things right? The Cry is a dark psychological thriller with a gripping moral dilemma at its heart and characters who will keep you guessing on every page.

Reviews
