WHAT IF IT WAS SOMEONE YOU KNEW?

'Utterly engrossing . . . I lived inside this book for two days - and I'm still thinking about it. Superb!' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR 'Intelligent, insightful and compelling. A clever, twisting whodunnit that delivers an emotional punch. I loved it.' C L Taylor '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 . . .

WHAT AUTHORS ARE SAYING- 'Perfectly pitched . . . will have you racing to the denouement.' Cara Hunter, bestselling author of CLOSE TO HOME and IN THE DARK '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 perceptive, empathetic and a talented writer' Daily Express _
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING- 'Really is unputdownable' ***** 'I was gripped from the first page' ***** 'Drew me in right from the start' ***** 'The Suspect blew me away' ***** 'I will be recommending this book to all my friends' ***** 'The best book I have read in ages' ***** 'Enthralling and full of suspense and twists' *****
The new must-read thriller from the author of Sunday Times bestseller, THE WIDOW, and the Richard & Judy No. 1 bestseller, THE CHILD.

Fiona Barton's debut, The Widow, was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and has been published in thirty-five countries and optioned for television. Her second novel, The Child, was a Sunday Times bestseller. Born in Cambridge, Fiona currently lives in south-west France. Previously, she 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. While working as a journalist, Fiona reported on many high-profile criminal cases and she developed a fascination with watching those involved, their body language and verbal tics. Fiona interviewed people at the heart of these crimes, from the guilty to their families, as well as those on the periphery, and found it was those just outside the spotlight who interested her most . . .


Utterly engrossing...I lived inside this book for two days-and I'm still thinking about it. Superb! * Shari Lapena, bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR * 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 * A terrific read - I loved The Suspect. Rich story-telling, beautifully paced and with characters that linger long after the final page. Readers are in for a treat. * Renee Knight, bestselling author of DISCLAIMER * Intelligent, insightful and compelling. A clever, twisting whodunnit that delivers an emotional punch. I loved it. * C. L. Taylor, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE MISSING * 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 *
