Neuroscientist Dean Burnett's new book on mental health

"Compelling and wise and rational" – Jon Ronson

Now a major BBC 1 drama starring Jenna Coleman (Victoria, Dr Who) and Ewen Leslie (Top of the Lake, Safe Harbour), The Cry by Helen Fitzgerald brings a parent's worst nightmare to vivid life. Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award, Helen FitzGerald's acclaimed psychological thriller brings a parent's worst nightmare to vivid life. Taut, dark, and emotional, The Cry follows the story of a missing baby and the investigation that thrusts his mother and father into the spotlight-and threatens to reveal the unthinkable. On a grueling flight from Glasgow to Australia, Joanna copes with what most mothers dread: a newborn that will not stop crying. Ill herself, Joanna tries to soothe baby Noah to no avail, and to the consternation of her fellow passengers. Alistair is finally able to settle his son, but not too long before they have to disembark and begin a long drive to Melbourne. When Noah mysteriously disappears after the couple stops along a lonely roadside, the criminal inquiry becomes a white-hot, global media sensation. As the focus on them intensifies, lies, rumour and innuendo spread, and Joanna and Alistair slowly begin to turn on each other. Someone is hiding the truth. But will knowing the truth bring Noah back? Filled with stunning twists and all-too-realistic scenes from a relationship in crisis, The Cry offers gripping suspense and emotional drama that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking finish.
