FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD
‘Absolutely brilliant… An exceptionally exciting, mysterious book – we both loved it’ Richard & Judy
It all happens so quickly. One day you're living the dream, commuting to work by riverbus with your charismatic neighbour Kit in the seat beside you. The next, Kit hasn't turned up for the boat and his wife Melia has reported him missing.
When you get off at your stop, the police are waiting. Another passenger saw you and Kit arguing on the boat home the night before and the police say that you had a reason to want him dead. You protest. You and Kit are friends - ask Melia, she'll vouch for you. And who exactly is this other passenger pointing the finger? What do they know about your lives?
No, whatever danger followed you home last night, you are innocent, totally innocent.

Fiona et Bram Lawson pensaient s'être séparés " intelligemment ". Ils avaient, en tout cas, trouvé un accord : ils habiteraient à tour de rôle avec leurs enfants dans leur belle demeure de Trinity Avenue, dans le sud de Londres. Mais l'histoire a mal tourné. Très mal tourné.
Un jour d'hiver, en rentrant chez elle, Fiona tombe sur des déménageurs. Tous ses meubles ont disparu, il y a des gens dans sa maison – un couple qu'elle n'a jamais vu lui annonce qu'il en est le nouveau propriétaire. Fiona essaie immédiatement de joindre Bram, mais son numéro est hors service. Et ses enfants, eux aussi, sont introuvables. Cauchemar éveillé ? Cela ne fait que commencer !
Entre Desperate Housewives et Les Apparences, Chez nous est un thriller redoutablement addictif, qui tient son lecteur en haleine jusqu'à la dernière page.

MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU'LL LOVE TO HATE
Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.
Then, early one Sunday, 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.
Praise for Those People:
'Guaranteed to have you vibrating with impotent fury … a carefully crafted psychological thriller’ Laura Wilson, Guardian
‘A feverish atmosphere is built up, with Candlish again skewering the peccadilloes and prejudices of her middle-class characters’ Sunday Times
'You're in for a treat!' Lisa Jewell
'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
‘Sharp satire and a plot that builds to a roiling boil with a couple of oh-so-clever final twists’ Sarah Vaughan
'Beautifully modulated and terrifically suspenseful' Washington Post
‘Twists aplenty, and such wonderful observation - I loved it' Clare Mackintosh
'An addictive, twisty page-turner about the neighbours from hell' Alice Feeney
'A delicious slice of suburban noir. I loved it' Harriet Tyce
'Candlish is a master at peeling away the veneer of middle-class respectability, and utterly nails the trials of living cheek-by-jowl with awful neighbours. You’ll be asking yourself, “How far would I go?”' heat
'Booth’s boorish presence causes sleep-deprived couples to bicker hatefully and grown siblings to become enraged with one another, until the whole community seems to turn on itself - with fatal consequences' Wall Street Journal
'A smart and twisty tale… a compelling read' Woman & Home
'A devilishly good thriller… with a wicked ending. Loved it' Laura Kemp
'Utterly gripping' RED

He thinks he’s safe up there. But he’ll never be safe from you.
The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among the warehouses of Tower Bridge, its roof terrace so discreet you wouldn’t know it existed if you weren't standing at the window of the flat directly opposite. But you are. And that’s when you see a man up there – a man you’d recognize anywhere. He’s older now and his appearance has subtly changed, but it’s definitely him.
Which makes no sense at all since you know he has been dead for over two years. You know this for a fact.
Because you’re the one who killed him.
‘Kieran Watts has been dead for over two years when I see him standing on the roof of a building in Shad Thames…’
'The Heights has everything you could possibly wish for - tragedy, obsession, revenge and, yes, love. Another finely-crafted masterpiece from Louise Candlish' BA Paris
'There’s nothing quite so chilling as the roar of mother tiger love. Louise Candlish had my heart in my throat. Dizzily dark. Dangerous. Deadly' Jane Corry
'No one creates middle-class characters we love to hate quite like Louise Candlish. I’d expected her to do this, and to provide a great sense of place, and twists that would have been rifling through the book to see how they’d been done. What I wasn’t expecting was that this thriller of obsessive revenge and intense parental grief would tug at my heartstrings. Smart, addictive, twisting, surprising. Highly recommended' Sarah Vaughan
‘Tense, provocative and devastatingly powerful. I loved Our House but I think The Heights might be even better’ TM Logan
'A beautifully written tale of destructive obsession and revenge, with Louise’s trademark killer twist' Mark Edwards
'It twists and it turns and it twists again. The Heights by Louise Candlish is the very definition of a “just one more chapter” novel. I devoured it. And it’s full of such great writing about the ferocity of maternal love' Hannah Beckerman
'Compelling, unexpected and beautifully written' Jane Fallon

Real life, and the person she used to be, begins to feel very far away.

FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE.
When Fi Lawson arrives home to find strangers moving into her house, she is plunged into terror and confusion.

And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?
FOR RICHER, FOR POORER.
Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores. As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime. What has he hidden from her – and what has she hidden from him? And will either survive the chilling truth – that there are far worse things you can lose than your house?
TILL DEATH US DO PART.

'The best book I have read all year . . . keeps you guessing until the end' 5***** READER REVIEW
'I was gripped by this book' 5***** READER REVIEW
My name is Amber Fraser. I've just moved in at Number 40, Lime Park Road. You'll think of me as a loving wife, a thoughtful neighbour and a trusted friend.
But this is a lie.
When Christy and Joe Davenport are handed the keys to Number 40 on picture-perfect Lime Park Road, it should be a dream come true.
But it's strange that the house was on the market for such a low price.
And that the previous owners, the Frasers, had renovated the entire property yet moved out within a year.
And that none of the neighbours will talk to Christy.
As her curiosity begins to give way to obsession, Christy finds herself drawn deeper into the mystery of the house's previous occupants - and the dark and shocking secret that tore the street apart . . .
