There is a real art to a good suspenseful crime drama. With stories like "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and others, a real movement has emerged from the European author circles. These have carried over in the US with stories like "The Killing".
If you have not yet delved into this genre, this would be an excellent toe in the water. There are twists, turns, and enough drama to have you turning pages or (in audible versions) listening well into the night. The beauty is the grittiness that pulls no punches and is not sanitized to a generic construct.
The Child is gripping, raw, and compelling. Give it a go.
