FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THEN SHE WAS GONE.
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.Â In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note. They've been dead for several days.Â 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.
'Rich, dark and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunnit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect' - RUTH WARE * 'You don't read a Lisa Jewell book, you fall into it. It takes huge talent to establish a whole world in the turn of two pages' - ERIN KELLY * 'I had an unrelentingly pleasurable and thrilling for-God's-sake-tell-me-what-happened sensation in my stomach for the entire read ... Stupendous!' - RUTH JONES * 'Absolutely brilliant.Â Great characterisation, a fascinating and dark set up and a great conclusion. She's always great but this is next level stuff' - SARAH PINBOROUGH
