Domestic Noir with Louise Candlish and Lisa Jewell

Join us for an evening of thrilling conversation with two bestselling authors, Louise Candlish and Lisa Jewell. Both Louise and Lisa are brilliant writers of suspenseful, psychological thrillers. They will be discussing their compelling new novels, Those People and The Family Upstairs. 

Those People by Louise Candlish

Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. But newcomers Darren and Jodie don’t follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.

Then a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone’s story is the same: They did it. But there’s a problem. The police don’t agree. And the door they’re knocking on next is yours….

‘Prepare to be gripped; Those People is nail-bitingly tense from the first page to the last. Louise Candlish shows us the dark side of suburbia – and of ourselves’ – Erin Kelly on Those People


The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

In a large house in 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….

‘Rich, dark and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunnit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect’ – Ruth Ware on The Family Upstairs
