The Family Upstairs

Being on a December thriller-ish kick, the next up was recently published The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. Amazon says, “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.” We trace the stories of three characters in this saga and piece together what happened twenty-five years ago. It’s a decent thriller, though not really “bone-chilling,” as Amazon purports. I’d grab it as an enjoyable choice, even though I didn’t love it.
