    Om The Children's Secret

    THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS ASKING. BUT THEY'RE NOT TELLING . . . At a children's party . . . Nothing ever happens in a sleepy American town like Middlebrook. Until the shocking events of one hot Saturday afternoon when, at a back-to-school party, nine children sneak off to a barn and a gun is fired. And one child is critically injured by another. In the media storm that sweeps the nation . . . The press are asking questions. About the type of parents who let their children play unsupervised in a house with guns. About how damaged a child must be to commit this kind of atrocity. In the ensuing police investigation . . . Two questions are the most urgent, and the most baffling. Of the nine children who were present in that barn, which one actually pulled the trigger? And why are the others staying silent?


    A dark, taut, and increasingly tense page-turner, The Children's Secret is the best kind of suspense story, one that makes the reader think as well as feel Monroe stokes the fires so effectively as racism, snobbery, and old grudges fly around decorous Middlebrook with the fury of the woes released from Pandora's box As the story unfolds through multiple points of view, Monroe holds a magnifying glass to gun ownership, the claustrophobia of a close-knit community, and deep-seated cultural biases. Timely and thought-provoking The Children's Secret has it all: part mystery and part thriller and completely engrossing. It peels back the layers of a tragedy showcasing how powerful secrets can be. This is not an ordinary whodunit - it's gripping and relevant and thought-provoking - and you won't be able to put it down
