Product Description

From the author of number one bestseller, Sleep Tight.

One Dark Secret. One act of revenge.

When Emma Joseph met her husband David, he was a man shattered by grief. His first wife had been killed outright when her car veered off the road. Just as tragically, their six-year-old daughter mysteriously vanished from the scene of the accident.

Now, six years later, Emma believes the painful years are behind them. She and David have built a new life together and have a beautiful baby son, Ollie.
Then a stranger walks into their lives, and their world tilts on its axis.
Emma’s life no longer feels secure. Does she know what really happened all those years ago? And why does she feel so frightened for herself and for her baby?

When a desperate Emma reaches out to her old friend DCI Tom Douglas for help, she puts all their lives in jeopardy. Before long, a web of deceit is revealed that shocks both Emma and Tom to the core.

They say you should never trust a stranger. Maybe they’re right.

Whilst I enjoyed the writing & the constant twists & turns in the book, the intense build up towards the end left me hoping something good would happen for someone Instead the ending left me feeling very heavy-hearted for Emma, who finally accepted her & for Tasha, who may have finally had a family to love her. No one got a nice ending - it ended on a very sour note. I hope a sequel is in order as Natasha deserved much better than this.

I have read 3 of Rachel Abbott novels and can recommend all of them. Her characters were very believable and each novel different. A really good read

This book was full of cliches, inconsistencies and typos. I was interested in the story but also managed to work out the ending by about halfway through. The characters were underdeveloped. Not recommended.

Wow! Yet another book from Rachel Abbott that I was unable to put down. I have resorted to hiding the past couple of days so I could read Stranger Child. This book is my favourite so far in the series, not because it's any better than the other three because they've all been outstanding but because the story gripped me from page 1 until the end - which I still didn't want to end.
This book is about an underworld very few want to acknowledge. A child is kidnapped and turns up 6 years later at her old home. A new baby has arrived but Tasher has plans to sabotage this cosy little life she's no longer a part of. This family has a very dark secret which is about to be dragged out of the closet.
I await the next book in this series - it can't come soon enough! A well deserved 5 STARS!

Go on a ride of intriguing twists and turns from start to the finish. Well written and paced for an engrossing read which developed emotions of helplessness and fear that were tinged by hope. An unfinished finality to the story will continue to plague thoughts well after the reading but could leave way for a sequel. While a finalised ending is not given in this tale, the psychology of the book does work well with the ending and is very fitting.
