Our House (Paperback)Louise Candlish (author)
With a premise so deliciously sleek, you wonder how it hasn’t been arrived at before, Our House is a twisting odyssey of suburban betrayal.
Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2019
On a bright morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they've just bought on Trinity Avenue. Nothing strange about that. Except it's your house. And you didn't sell it.
For better, for worse.
When Fi Lawson arrives home to find strangers moving into her house, she is plunged into terror and confusion. She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling.
How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? 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.
With a premise so deliciously sleek, you wonder how it hasn’t been arrived at before, Our House is a twisting odyssey of suburban betrayal, masterfully unspooled by Candlish who effortlessly stays several steps ahead of the reader.

'I raced through it this weekend. Such a smart idea. Twisty, warped, credible. Brilliantly plotted and compelling. Deserves to be such a hit' - Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal
'I loved the wonderful hook of Our House, which plays with our modern obsession with property - and the vulnerability that exposes. Louise Candlish is a great writer; she inhaled me into her nightmarish world where everything we think we know is ripped from under our feet' - Fiona Barton, author of The Widow andThe Child
'If 2018 brings a better book than Our House I will eat my hat. Addictive, twisty and oh so terrifyingly possible' - Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You
