From “the most brilliant mystery writer of our time" (Patricia Cornwell), The Child’s Child is a thriller, set in London, about a brother and sister involved with the same man.
When 30-something Grace and her brother Andrew inherit their grandmother's house in London they decide to move in together. They’ve always gotten on well and the house is large enough to split down the middle. Yet when Andrew's partner James moves in, the balance is altered – with almost fatal consequences.
A master of psychological suspense, Barbara Vine takes us where violence and social taboos collide. She shows how society's treatment of those it once considered undesirable has changed – and how sometimes it hasn't.
