Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Utterly engrossing…I lived inside this book for two days—and I’m still thinking about it. Superb! Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author
“In The Suspect, Fiona Barton mixes universal truths with a thrilling tale.” USA Today (3½ out of 4 stars)
“A nail-biting tale of missing teens and the parents who worry for them…Barton’s characterizations are exceptional.” Washington Post
“An ensemble cast narrates a splashy front-page story about British teens dying in Bangkok. Clichéd roles come alive, each with its own narrator. Susan Duerden is the reporter; her BBC tone is broken up by adept accents for Thai and Dutch characters and the spiraling despair of a woman turned from an observer to a player. Fiona Hardingham gives the mother of a girl found dead in a dirty Thai hotel a fragile, exhausted misery spiked with fierce anger as the investigation grinds on with hideous pressure from the press. Nicholas Guy Smith voices the weary detective following up in England, and Katherine McEwan gives us the vulnerability and angst of victims in flashbacks. This one will keep you up at night. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
Barton is a stunning storyteller. Her career as a journalist has helped make this story terrifyingly real. Every turn of the plot feels authentic and very scary... Library Journal (starred review)
[A] tense, character-driven exploration of expectations and independence. Booklist
