The House: The terrifying thriller that's keeping readers up all night [9780241296547]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A BBC Radio 2 Book Club Choice.

The perfect couple. The perfect house. The perfect crime.

Londoners Jack and Syd moved into the house a year ago. It seemed like their dream home: tons of space, the perfect location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it. So when they made a grisly discovery in the attic, Jack and Syd chose to ignore it. That was a mistake.

Because someone has just been murdered. Right outside their back door. And now the police are watching them...
