"I swear I didn't breathe the whole time I was reading. Gripping,
pacy, brilliantly twisty."
"Rich, dark and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunnit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect."
"Twisty and engrossing story of betrayal and redemption. Reminiscent of Donna Tartt in scope and quality"
"Few writers of psychological suspense devise such swift, slippery plots; fewer still people their stories with characters so human and complex. Lisa's Jewell's The Family Upstairs glitters like a blade and cuts even deeper."
"Creepy, intricate and utterly immersive: an excellent holiday read." * Guardian *
