Death. It's a dirty business.

When Diya Burman's best friend Angie dies, it feels like her own life is falling apart. Wanting a fresh start, she joins Slough & Sons - a family firm that cleans up after the recently deceased.

Old love letters. Porcelain dolls. Broken trinkets. Clearing away the remnants of other people's lives, Diya begins to see things. Horrible things. Things that get harder and harder to write off as merely her grieving imagination. All is not as it seems with the Slough family. Why won't they speak about their own recent loss? And who is the strange man that keeps turning up at their jobs?

If Diya's not careful, she might just end up getting buried under the family tree...

MEDIA REVIEWS

A very readable, very powerful novel which drew me in and didn't let go until the terrifying end - Damp Pebbles

A triumph, thriving on relatable fears, hyper-realistic dirty homes, and understandable grief. This novel has the momentum of a train with no breaks - The Fantasy Hive

A great Halloween read I found difficult to put down. A realistic setting, with likeable characters and some genuinely icky and creepy moments along the way - SFF World

Family Business is a story about keeping secrets and remembering loved ones, told in a plain, unfussy style whose groundedness makes the book's unfolding sense of dread all the more tangible - Financial Times

I can't put into words just how cleverly written Family Business is. It completely blew me away - FanFiAddict
