Publisher's Summary

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.

Marvellous!!

Absolutely loved this book. The story has great pace and I was reluctant to stop listening and resume normal life!
Brilliantly narrated by Lisa Coleman. I will look for other books narrated by her.
Money well spent and very enjoyable 9 hours!

An excellent, unpredictable tale

What did you like most about Stranger Child?

This story is really original and twists and turns nicely throughout.
The depiction of the police is realistic and characters are well developed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Emma. She is brave and strong but also vulnerable and believable.

What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

the book is very well read by Lisa Coleman and she defines the characters well throughout.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I found myself listening at every spare minute to find out what happens next.

Any additional comments?

a really great little crime thriller with good characters. Thoroughly recommended and I will be checking out other titles by the author.

disappointing, I bought as the reviews were good..

I'm not sure why I stuck with this one, actually I do I had nothing else to listen to ... I found it slow ... unimaginative and not fussed about trying another Rachel abbott book. try another thriller - this was boring
