Winner of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, The Nowhere Child is screenwriter Christian White’s internationally bestselling debut thriller of psychological suspense about a woman uncovering devastating secrets about her family―and her very identity.
In this stunning first novel, White weaves stories within stories while keeping the thrilling mystery alive ... White's tightly woven debut thriller has already won the Victorian Premier Literary Award in Australia; its arrival Stateside comes highly recommended.
White is a sparse but talented writer, his sharp lines cutting the page like knives. With few details he paints vivid scenes ... Sometimes his scenes are so striking they read like frames from a movie, which makes sense, because White is also a screenwriter ... Deftly plotted, with believable characters, The Nowhere Child is a satisfying mystery by a talented new voice in the genre.
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. While secondary characters are not as developed as Kim, this worthwhile story of a woman’s quest for the truth will work with women’s-fiction readers as well as mystery fans.
