La viuda

Planeta Colombia
5

Si él hubiera hecho algo horrible, ella lo sabría. ¿O no? Todos sabemos quién es él: el hombre que vimos en la portada de todos los periódicos acusado de un crimen terrible. Pero, ¿qué sabemos realmente de ella, de quien le sujeta el brazo en la escalera del juzgado, de la esposa que está a su lado? El marido de Jean Taylor fue acusado y absuelto de un crimen terrible hace años. Cuando él fallece de forma repentina, Jean, la esposa perfecta que siempre le ha apoyado y creído en su inocencia, se convierte en la única persona que conoce la verdad.

Pero ¿qué implicaciones tendría aceptar esa verdad? ¿Hasta dónde está dispuesta a llegar para que su vida siga teniendo sentido? Ahora que Jean puede ser ella misma, hay una decisión que tomar: ¿callar, mentir o actuar?

Fiona Barton
One of the most highly anticipated thrillers of the year—as seen in People, Entertainment Weekly, Time, USA Today, Bustle, Good Housekeeping.com, HelloGiggles, The Boston Globe, PureWow, The Dallas Morning News, and more!  
 
“The Child is a perfect blend of beach read and book club selection. It’s a fascinating and fitting follow-up to [Barton’s] best-selling debut novel, The Widow. . . .[A] page-turning whodunit….A novel that is both fast-paced and thought-provoking, it keeps the reader guessing right to the end.”—USA Today
 
“Fiona Barton brings back reporter Kate Waters from the best-selling The Widow and delivers another winner with The Child.…A truly engaging tale. Those who enjoyed The Widow will discover that Barton has only gotten better.”—The Associated Press

“A lightning-paced, twisty story with an ending so surprising you might have to read it twice.”—GoodHousekeeping.com

“Multiple narratives mean non-stop action in The Child…Like her fellow novelists, Fiona Barton knows showing is better than telling because it allows for the reader's perspective…whether the conclusion occasions a shock or an 'aha!' doesn't matter; it's satisfying due to all the work that's gone into its discovery.”—NPR.org

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 human remains, 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 has been found at the building site?

As Kate investigates, she unearths connections to a crime that rocked the city decades earlier: A child 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…

An NPR Best Book of the Year
A Bustle Best Thriller Novel of the Year
Fiona Barton
Best-seller do The Sunday Times e do The New York Times, um romance que é ao mesmo tempo a reconstrução de um caso de polícia e uma análise impiedosa de um relacionamento complexo.

 

Ao longo dos anos, Jean Taylor deixou de contar muitas coisas sobre o terrível crime que o marido era suspeito de ter cometido. Ela estava muito ocupada sendo a esposa perfeita, permanecendo ao lado do homem com quem casara enquanto convivia com os olhares acusadores e as ameaças anônimas.

No entanto, após um acidente cheio de enigmas, o marido está morto, e Jean não precisa mais representar esse papel. Não há mais motivo para ficar calada. As pessoas querem ouvir o que ela tem a dizer, querem saber como era viver com aquele homem. E ela pode contar para eles que havia alguns segredos. Afinal, segredos são a matéria que contamina (ou preserva) todo casamento.

Narrado das perspectivas de Jean Taylor, a viúva, do detetive Bob Sparkes, chefe da investigação, cuja carreira é posta em xeque pelo caso, e da repórter Kate Waters, a mais habilidosa dos jornalistas que estão atrás da verdade, o romance de Fiona Barton é um tributo aos profissionais que nunca deixam uma história, ou um caso, escapar, mesmo que ela já esteja encerrada.

 

·         Considerado pela Publishers Weekly “um romance de estreia excepcional”, A viúva foi escrito pela consagrada jornalista Fiona Barton, que ganhou destaque mundial na cobertura do caso Madeleine McCann, a menina inglesa desaparecida durante as férias da família em Portugal, em 2007.

·         A viúva vem sendo tratado pela impressa, a exemplo dos veículos The Bookseller e The Observer, como leitura perfeita para quem gosta de thrillers como A garota no trem e Garota exemplar.
