Product description

Review

"A nervy, soulful, genuinely surprising it-could-happen-to-you thriller -- a book to make you peer over your shoulder for days afterwards."--A.J. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

"A stunning debut...White skillfully creates a credible story filled with surprises and realistic characters worth caring about."--Associated Press

"The Nowhere Child is the personification of a high-concept thriller, brilliantly executed. White raises the bar on psychological suspense, telling Kim Leamy's tale in a stylish voice and with a heart-pounding pace. Read page one, and you won't stop. Guaranteed."--Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author

"The Nowhere Child is compelling and intense. The alternating chapters between past and present are perfectly paced and masterfully written to maximize suspense and lead us down a path of love, hate, redemption, and--ultimately--hope. I literally could not put this book down until I turned the last page. The best debut novel I've read in years."--Allison Brennan, New York Times bestselling author of the Lucy Kincaid and Max Revere series

"The Nowhere Child is pure dynamite. The high concept premise grabbed me from the first page and refused to let me go until I finished. You may try to read it slowly, so you can savor every single word, but the story is so all-encompassing--the need to know what happens next so urgent--you'll forget all about savoring and find yourself tearing through the pages as fast as your fingers can manage. You do not want to miss this book!"--Linda Castillo, New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Burkholder series

"The Nowhere Child is a well-written thriller that avoids the clichés of the genre. The characters are interesting and believable and the book kept me reading up to the satisfying conclusion." --Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of The Third Victim

"An impressive debut novel, deftly plotted, constantly shifting and full of vivid characters."-- Garry Disher, author of the Inspector Challis mysteries

"White skillfully builds an uncertain, noxious world of dysfunctional families and small-town secrets. The Nowhere Child is a gripping debut from an exceptional new talent."-- Mark Brandi, Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award Winning author of Wimmera

"Such a clever idea, which grips from the very first chapter."--Ragnar Jonasson, author of Snowblind

"Beautifully written, perfectly suspenseful and wonderfully dark. I could not put this book down."-- Susi Holliday, author of The Deaths of December

"Packed with tension, twists and tremendous pace, it's hard to believe that this is the work of a debut author. The Nowhere Child is stunning and flawless. I can't recommend it enough."-- Thomas Enger, author of Burned

"The Nowhere Child is a fabulous read, populated by such well-drawn and identifiable characters that I felt I knew them. I was desperate to know how the story unfolded. Brilliant!"-- Louise Voss, author of From the Cradle

"[An] outstanding debut. By juxtaposing past and present, the author keeps the tension high. The impatient may be tempted to skip ahead, but they shouldn't. Thriller fans will want to savor every crumb of evidence and catch every clue. White is definitely a writer to watch."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"In this stunning first novel, White weaves stories within stories while keeping the thrilling mystery alive. [A] tightly woven debut thriller."--Library Journal (starred review)

"White has written a "returning-to-your-southern-roots" tale with a difference; Kim is exploring
roots she never knew she had, and the journey is as bumpy and fraught with bewildered feelings as readers
might imagine. This worthwhile story of a woman's quest for the truth will work with women's-fiction readers as well as mystery fans."--Booklist

"Readers are led through each shocking revelation until reaching a tense climax they will not see coming.This excellent thriller marks a noteworthy new voice on the rise."--Mystery Scene

"A very auspicious debut...A tightly written book with a dynamite plot."--Toronto Globe and Mail

"A propulsive debut novel...gripping. White is a sparse but talented writer, his sharp lines cutting the page like knives. With few details he paints vivid scenes. Deftly plotted, with believable characters, The Nowhere Child is a satisfying mystery by a talented new voice in the genre."--Shelfawareness

"A novel that builds to a terrifying climax, The Nowhere Child introduces an author whose talents include strong plotting, vivid characterization and a profound sense of place. And it offers powerful explorations of dysfunctional families, the damage that lies can spawn and the dangers of cults based on personality. "--The Free Lance-Star
