Fiona Barton (website) is the author of the new Kate Waters thriller series. The first book in the series, The Widow, has been likened to bestsellers such as Gone Girl and The Girl On The Train.
Fiona Barton was born in 1957 in Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
She is a British author who prior to writing books worked in London as a writer and journalist for several newspapers including The Daily Mail where she worked as a senior writer, The Telegraph where she was a news editor, and The Mail, where her job was that of a chief reporter.
During her time at the Mail, she was awarded the National Press Award.
In 2008 she left her journalism career to volunteer in Sri Lanka. From this time she started working with exiled and threatened journalists located all over the world.
Fiona Barton currently lives in south-west France with her husband, Gary, where she is busy writing her next book.
Her debut novel, The Widow, has been so far sold in around 30 countries.
Right now reading the Fiona Barton books in order only entails catching up to her currently two published novels: The Widow, a psychological thriller published in 2016, and The Child, another psychological thriller published in 2017 with new protagonists apart from Kate Waters, a reporter who features in both books, hence the reason why they are both considered part of a series.
The Widow is an awesome gripping psychological thriller and it is, indeed, a worthy successor of above-mentioned queens of the genre. I can’t wait to read The Child when it gets published late June.
Here is the Fiona Barton series in order, which will be updated with new books written by the author.
