I loved OUR HOUSE last year by Louise Candlish so you can imagine how happy I was to see THOSE PEOPLE coming out today!
This new novel of domestic suspense is set in an upscale London neighborhood that becomes like a war zone for a certain group of seemingly civilized parents and their children. Written with acidic wit and a lot of angst, and even touted as much like Moriarty’s BIG LITTLE LIES, THOSE PEOPLE will have you in its grip immediately.
A safe neighborhood begins falling apart when a young couple move into a vacant house that they’ve inherited. They begin creating havoc and invading everyone’s privacy by using their property to conduct a disturbing and highly disruptive business. Everything is turned upside down and the place starts going to the dogs. And then there’s the murder….
While reading this novel I contemplated what it would mean to me if this happened in my very quiet neighborhood. Total disruption. Life turned upside down. Ugh.
My review copy of THOSE PEOPLE by Louise Candlish arrived from Berkley a division of Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review. It’s another great suspenseful novel from an English author I’ve come to love. Super for summer.
