Santa Rosa - The author of the stunning New York Times bestseller The Widow returns with a brand-new novel of twisting psychological suspense.
This is the second in the Dinner to Die For series that we've crafted especially for our mystery readers. Come join us for a sumptious three-course dinner that includes the best pasta dishes in Sonoma County with wine and dessert at the renowned Spoonbar in Healdsburg (see menu below).* Our author for this evening is one of the UK's fastest rising stars, Fiona Barton. Fiona is the author of the stunning New York Times bestseller The Widow, a novel of twisting psychological suspense.
She's touring this summer with her new book, The Child. Here's a preview...
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 she’s at a loss for answers. 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 up its greatest mystery. And she soon finds herself the keeper of unexpected secrets—and torn between what she can and cannot tell…
Before her debut thriller The Widow hit the bestseller lists, 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.
