'One of this summer's most anticipated thrillers'Stylist
'Scarily plausible' Observer
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
'A read that will make you rejoice for nice neighbours!' Prima
'Louise Candlish captures the mores of middle-class life and our worst, curtain-twitching tendencies like no one else' RED, online
'Full of marvellously toxic characters' Best
'An unsettling, darkly funny, artfully composed novel about the way we live now' Irish Times

Succinctly, a ‘poorer class’ couple move onto an ‘middle class’ street. The newcomers cause bedlam with loud music, car repairs, car sales and car parking in the established residents’ parking spaces. Oo er.......
Obviously friction is caused and the established residents plot together and take action. That’s about it. Nothing gripping, nothing thrilling and if sleep hasn’t taken over, nothing interesting.
Boring self absorbed characters, so thinly drawn you can see through them. Thank goodness I don’t live on a street with those people.
When Jean passed away the residents were curious to see who would live in No.1, but they hadn’t even contemplated the thought that they may end up with a nightmare neighbour.
The neighbourhood is delivered a massive blow, Darren and Jodie are THE definition of nightmare neighbours. Here’s just a few examples of what they are like: knocking down a garden wall, that the neighbours had all campaigned with Jean to keep; parking a dozen cars on the street outside other people’s houses and refusing to move them on Sundays for the kids; loud music blaring late into the night; DIYing without ever seemingly making progress… oh the list goes on!
The neighbours are trapped. Even if they wanted to sell, no one would want to buy their houses with the disruption at No.1 evident 24/7. Poor Sissy who had set up a B&B in her house is now losing all her guests as they complain of the noise throughout the night.
Something has to happen.
The prologue opens with an extract from Ralph talking to the police. There’s been a death. Have the neighbours got what they’ve been wishing for?
The plot then flits back to 8 weeks previously and builds up the story telling the tale from multiple neighbours, with each chapter beginning with an extract from the police interviews linked to the POV for this particular chapter – continually building up the suspicion of what the hell has happened?
As the past collides with the present, Candlish reveals the shocking truth which completely threw me. I was back to square one, all the scenarios I had thought up needed scrapping and I began again trying to work out what was going on.
The twists kept on coming as Candlish further explored her characters and dug out their darkest thoughts. The second half of the book seemed to be a continuous fireworks display as “bang” a secret is revealed, “bang” the plot changes direction and “bang” the police shift gear and hone in on someone else.
With so many sub plots being explored, it’s a book that continued to capture my attention and I flew through this book in a day. An incredible book to follow Our House, and it ensures that Candlish remains in my “instant grab” category.
