The author of the stunning New York Times bestseller The Widow returns with 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. She cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building Site Baby? 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. Her heartbroken parents were left devastated by the loss. 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 that erupt in the lives of three women—and torn between what she can and cannot tell… Read by Mandy Williams, Rosalyn Landor, Jean Gilpin, Katharine McEwan, and Steve West

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A cast of narrators takes on Barton’s second audiobook of psychological suspense. The four female perspectives Barton oscillates between are kept distinctly separate through the readers—Mandy Williams, Rosalyn Landor, Jean Gilpin, and Katharine McEwan—preventing the story’s complexity from losing listeners….The quality of the performances…[and] their authentic emotion and energy keep listeners engaged.” AudioFile
“Tense, tantalizing, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“An engrossing, irresistible story about the coming to light of a long-buried secret and an absolutely fabulous read.” Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author
“Readers…will be rewarded with startling twists—and a stunning, emotionally satisfying conclusion.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
