        After The Widow and The Child, best sellers best-booked by NPR, Barton sends fan-favorite journalist Kate Waters to Bangkok to investigate the disappearance of two teenage British girls. Kate also wants to mend fences with estranged son Jake, volunteering there, but he's the main suspect in the girls' disappearance.

        Fleet Street star Kate Waters’s reporting has helped British police crack some extremely disturbing cases, but she faces what could be her toughest one yet in bestseller Barton’s top-shelf third psychological thriller (after 2017’s The Child). When the parents of 18-year-old Alexandra O’Connor, who’s backpacking in Thailand with an 18-year-old female friend, fail to hear from Alex after a week, they alert the police. Kate’s longtime police source, Det. Insp. Bob Sparkes, tells her about the two missing teenage girls, in the hope that Kate will write a story that “might winkle them out of whichever bar they’re sitting in.” Kate keenly identifies with the concerned parents, since her estranged older son, Jake, has been in Thailand for the past two years after inexplicably dropping out of university. But what starts as a routine story soon proves otherwise, sending Kate and her journalistic frenemies to Thailand in search of answers. The exceedingly twisty tale that follows will test Kate, and her painfully conflicting loyalties, to the limit. Barton’s many fans will be rewarded. Agent: Madeleine Milburn, Madeleine Milburn Literary (U.K.).

        January 1, 2019
        When two girls traveling in Thailand turn up dead in a suspicious fire, journalist Kate Waters follows the story without disclosing a hidden agenda.Kate's son, a former golden boy, dropped out of school and traveled to Thailand two years prior, and he's been in sporadic touch since. Coincidentally, it turns out that he was present at the same guesthouse on the night the girls died. Sidelined because of her conflict of interest, Kate continues to investigate, as does DI Bob Sparkes, a compassionate policeman distracted by the impending death of his wife. Which leads one to wonder: When did all thriller writers begin to fashion themselves as psychologists? There's a dead giveaway to any possible plot twist--a character whose face or eyes is described as "blank." In Barton's (The Child, 2017, etc.) book, to be fair, it takes almost 300 pages to reach this moment, and up until that point, she creates quite a bit of narrative interest by giving voice to the victims in addition to the many people involved in the investigation--driven reporters, bereaved parents, and very human policemen. But once the killer is clearly outed, even though it takes another 100 pages for all the pieces to fall into place, the novel quickly loses steam. Even a final moral conundrum that should immediately freeze the blood of any parent seems overly constructed rather than shocking. By that point, it had become tiresome reading about most of the characters and their shifty relationships to the truth. "No one is to be believed ever," seems to be a major takeaway. Oh, and P.S., don't let your kids run wild in Thailand.This has the potential to be a thoughtful thriller with an interesting setting, but Barton is too willing to cater to expectations--short chapters, familiar clues, and stereotypical villains.
