Synopsis

The #1 bestseller and gripping Richard & Judy Book Club pick.

A textbook example of meticulously crafted plotting and incremental dread, The Family Upstairs unspools its labyrinthine story of mystery and intrigue in set-piece reveals of the highest calibre.   

In a large house in London's fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up.

In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note. They've been dead for several days.

Who has been looking after the baby? And where did they go?

Two entangled families. A house with the darkest of secrets. A compulsive new thriller from Lisa Jewell.

"Creepy, intricate and utterly immersive: an excellent holiday read." - The Guardian.

"Absolutely brilliant. Great characterisation, a fascinating and dark set up and a great conclusion. She's always great but this is next level stuff.' - Sarah Pinborough.
