The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell - Independent Bookshop Edition

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 twisty and engrossing story of betrayal and redemption.' IAN RANKIN

'Rich, dark and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunnit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect.' RUTH WARE

'Really good, gripping. I couldn't bear for it to finish... I don't want to move onto the next book too soon as it feels like a betrayal.' OLIVIA COLMAN
