Left Bank Books welcomes journalist and bestselling author of The Widow Fiona Barton, who will sign and discuss her new suspense novel, “The Child”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “The Child” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

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? 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.
