*** Golden Child by Claire Adam

Golden Child is the haunting tale of a family in Trinidad with twins, one conventionally brilliant and the other one quirky. When the quirky one disappears, the father tries to rescue him, unspooling the entire family story, and the story of a country controlled, it seems, by gangsters and corruption.

I particularly loved the description of the complicated relationships between the father, mother, and children, contrasted with their secret thoughts.
