Product description


Taut, tense, and beautifully written. I held my breath between chapters and didn't sleep until I reached the end (Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go)

An elegantly written page-turner which pulled me in from the start and held its grip until the final page (Renee Knight, author of bestselling psychological thriller Disclaimer)

I absolutely loved this novel. The Other Child is seriously gripping, seriously scary and seriously brilliant (Clare Kendal, author of The Book of You)

Truly unnerving. Atkins perfectly captures the vulnerability that comes with moving overseas, away from friends and support networks, and uses it expertly in this compelling novel. Not just one-more-page gripping but perceptive and beautifully written (Lucie Whitehouse, author of Before We Met)

The last book I read in one sitting like this was Louise Doughty's Apple Tree Yard. Like Louise, Lucy Atkins is brilliant at ramping up the tension so that there's not a chance of relief until the end (Polly Samson, author of The Kindness)

Addictive . . . a pace so relentless that you'll want to inhale this novel in one uninterrupted sitting (The Sunday Times)

Atmospheric and packed with suspense, kept me on edge from start to finish (Woman & Home Magazine)

Book Description

A gripping psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling debut The Missing One. Perfect for fans of I Let You Go, The Sisters by Claire Douglas, The Book of You and The Ice Twins.
