Meet Sunday Night, a woman with physical and psychological scars, and a killer instinct.  Sunnie has spent Years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing.  But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie's help.  Is the girl dead?  Did someone take her?  If she is out there, why doesn't she want to be found?  It's time for Sunnie to face her own demons, because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

ABOUT FIONA BARTON:  Fiona Barton, The New York Times Bestselling Author of The Widow and The Child, trains and works with journalists all over the World.  Previously, she was a Senior Writer at The Daily Mail, News Editor at The Daily Telegraph, and Chief Reporter at The Mail on Sunday, where she Won Reporter of the Year at the British Press Awards.

ABOUT THE CHILD:  The Author of the stunning New York Times Bestseller The Widow will return with a Brand-New Novel of twisting psychological suspense.

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?  As Kate investigates, she unearths connections to a crime that rocked the city decades earlier: A newborn baby 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.
