Publisher's summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Widow returns with a brand-new novel of twisting psychological suspense about every parent’s worst nightmare....

When two 18-year-old girls go missing in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft, and frantic with worry. What were the girls up to before they disappeared?

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, whom she hasn’t seen in two years, since he left home to go travelling.

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....

Critic reviews

“A nail-biting tale of missing teens and the parents who worry for them. Fiona Barton’s first two novels, The Widow and The Child, were international bestsellers....The Suspect deserves equal success. It’s...expertly written....Barton’s characterizations are exceptional.” (The Washington Post)

“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)

“[I]n Barton's expert hands, The Suspect transcends the typical to become something more: A gripping psychological suspense about the changing relationship between parents and their grown children.…masterfully written, expertly plotted, and skillfully paced....Using her exceptional storytelling skills and her keen insight into the minds of each of her characters…Barton creates a twisty mystery that packs a serious emotional punch.” (Bustle)

“Utterly engrossing…I lived inside this book for two days - and I’m still thinking about it. Superb!”(Shari Lapena, New York Times best-selling author of The Couple Next Door)
