Those People (Hardback)Louise Candlish (author)
- In stock online
Candlish returns to pull at the tantalising threads of neighbourly harmony, asking how far a community might go to protect their little England. Mirroring the on-tenterhooks, slow-reveal structure of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies and peopled by a brilliant cast of nuanced, believable characters, Those People is a masterclass in tension that probes the darkest corners of everyday prejudice and malice.
Could you hate your neighbour enough to plot to kill him?
Until Darren Booth moves in at number 1, Lowland Way, the neighbourhood is a suburban paradise. But soon after his arrival, disputes over issues like loud music and parking rights escalate all too quickly to public rows and threats of violence.
Then, early one Saturday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: Booth did it.
But there's a problem. The police don't agree with them.
