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 Magazine) brings us the can’t-look-away story of three entangled families living in a house with the darkest of secrets.”
