'He's gone. And telling the truth won't bring him back...

'When a baby goes missing on a lonely roadside in Australia, it sets off a police investigation that will become a media sensation and dinner-table talk across the world.

'Lies, rumours and guilt snowball, causing the parents, Joanna and Alistair, to slowly turn against each other.

'Finally Joanna starts thinking the unthinkable: could the truth be even more terrible than she suspected? And what will it take to make things right?

'The Cry is a dark psychological thriller with a gripping moral dilemma at its heart and characters who will keep you guessing on every page.'
