“Rich, dark, and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect.” —Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

“A haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read.” —Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone comes another page-turning look inside one family’s past as buried secrets threaten to come to light.

Be careful who you let in.

Soon after her twenty-fifth birthday, Libby Jones returns home from work to find the letter she’s been waiting for her entire life. She rips it open with one driving thought: I am finally going to know who I am.

She soon learns not only the identity of her birth parents, but also that she is the sole inheritor of their abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London’s fashionable Chelsea neighborhood, worth millions. Everything in Libby’s life is about to change. But what she can’t possibly know is that others have been waiting for this day as well—and she is on a collision course to meet them.

Twenty-five years ago, police were called to 16 Cheyne Walk with reports of a baby crying. When they arrived, they found a healthy ten-month-old happily cooing in her crib in the bedroom. Downstairs in the kitchen lay three dead bodies, all dressed in black, next to a hastily scrawled note. And the four other children reported to live at Cheyne Walk were gone.

In The Family Upstairs, the master of “bone-chilling suspense” (People) brings us the can’t-look-away story of three entangled families living in a house with the darkest of secrets.

  • Eclass

    The book started so slow I had to start it over after I listened to the first 4 chapters but once I did that the story was good... I sometimes would lose places in the book because it went from past to present .but once I got deep into the book I wanted more

    I love Lisa Jewell’s books. Over over finished this one I’ll have read (listened to) every one of her books.

  • Anonymous

    slow moving, verbally showy book with a mostly boring plot.

  • Linda M.

    An intriguing storyline, nicely paced. I don't usually like audio books narrated by more than one person but it was fine with this particular book because the narrator changed with whichever character narrated a chapter. The ending was good but some of the later events concerning the whole household became a little too far-fetched for me, which is why I gave the book four stars. Still, a real page-turner (if reading it).

  • Kathleen L.

    Great psychological thriller. Really enjoy books that I can’t easily determine where the story is going. This is one of those books for me. Narration was hreat

  • Barbara B.

    Don’t bother. Only finished this book because I can’t not finish a book.

  • Marie W.

    Between the storyline and narration, this book kept me intrigued the entire time. The writer made the characters lifelike and relatable. The plot was captivating and dark. Onto the next Lisa Jewell book....

  • Christine P.

    A good read

    Listened in two days. Loved it! Not what I expected. I’m glad I didn’t read the synopsis before hand.
