Publisher Description

PREPARE TO BE HOOKED! IT'S LISA JEWELL'S NEW THRILLER. . .

LONDON. June 2019: on the foreshore of the river Thames, a bag of bones is discovered. Human bones.

DCI Samuel Owusu is called to the scene and quickly sends the bag for forensic examination. The bones are those of a young woman, killed by a blow to the head many years ago.

Also inside the bag is a trail of clues which lead DCI Owusu back to a mansion in Chelsea where, nearly thirty years previously, three people lay dead in a kitchen, and a baby waited upstairs for someone to pick her up.

The clues point forward too to a brother and sister in Chicago searching for the only person who can make sense of their pasts.

Four deaths. An unsolved mystery. A family whose secrets can't stay buried for ever ...

A truly fantastic sequel

Often sequels feel less than the original. Not so with this one. I read it in a day and a half. I was so invested with the characters and the storyline. The first book was one the really stuck with me for a long time so I really wanted to know how the story went and it delivered way above my expectations.
An excellent story and so lovely to read.

Lisa Jewell has said she hates writing sequels, so much so she often refuses to do them, however, The Family Upstairs (the first book in this dualology) almost itself demanded a sequel - there was no way Jewell could’ve left it like that! A special thanks to all of the people who badgered her for it, if I had read it earlier, I would’ve been sending her an email or letter too!

Ahhh I’m quite sad that I’ve finished this as Henry Lamb has been one of my favourite characters in a book, maybe ever.

I really enjoyed the new additional characters (Rachel & Samuel), I didn’t feel like they were unnecessary and they had substance 😊

So many twists & turns too, will they all finally get their happy ending? I won’t spoil it so I’ll just say who knows? 🤷🏼‍♀️

All I know is that I’m gonna miss crazy Henry Lamb 😆
