Lisa Jewell – The Family Upstairs


From the New York Times best-selling author and master of bone-chilling suspense (People) comes another pause-resisting look inside one familys past as buried secrets threaten to come to light.

Gifted musician Clemency Thompson is playing for tourists on the streets of Southern France when she receives an urgent text message. Her childhood friend, Lucy, is demanding her immediate return to London.

Its happening, says the message. The baby is back.

Libby Jones was only six months old when she became an orphan. Now 25, shes astounded to learn of an inheritance that will change her life. A gorgeous, dilapidated townhouse in one of Londons poshest neighborhoods has been held in a trust for her all these years. Now, its hers.

As Libby investigates the story of her birth parents and the dark legacy of her new home, Clemency and Lucy are headed her way to uncover, and possibly protect, secrets of their own. What really happened in that rambling Chelsea mansion when they were children? And are they still at risk?

Jewells novels have been praised as sure to please fans of Ruth Ware and A.J. Finn (Library Journal), and her latest is no exception. The Family Upstairs will keep you guessing until the very end.
