It is a credit to Jewell that I was able to keep up with a story that has a multitude of characters with multiple aliases and backstories with the help of the handy family tree she includes at the beginning of the book. You don't have to read The Family Upstairs as there are a lot of backstories that I think you can piece together about what happened. And what about his full-fledged stalking with the initial intent to make luv in da club to him (without consent most likely)? She is hiding some very, very dark secrets and soon Alix is sucked so deeply into the darkness of Josie’s life that she fears she may never see the light again.

You're telling me that Interpol wouldn't be waiting for you on the tarmac as soon as you landed to confiscate your fake documents and put you in jail? The story itself is interesting and Jewell keeps you in the dark about what the complete story is and how three distinct story lines are connected for the majority of the book. This book is very character-driven, but also provides the mystery and suspense that you've come to love with Lisa Jewell novels. I didn’t decide until halfway through to send Lucy after him, but realized their stories needed to align more closely as the book developed.This is slated as a standalone sequel, but if I hadn’t read The Family Upstairs before this, I’m not sure I would have been as invested in the plot or its characters. I mean I have to respect the fact he's so painfully self-aware at times but then bops are Chicago and asks 400+ ppl if they've seen this man without any reservations. It was such a great book written with different timelines so you go back and forth in time quite a lot to different characters.

Because that creepy, intense, extremely eerie, spin tingling “Family Upstairs” book rocked my world!I've been a fan of Jewell's for a long time, but her last two books just haven't been all that great for me.

An investigation into the identity of the deceased is launched and the past comes back to haunt the family! Her father was well off and offered Rachel a comfortable life style and the ability to design, produce and sell her jewelry.Old bones discovered in a black bin liner on the banks of the Thames mark the beginning of this wonderfully gripping story of what happened to the Lambs, a rich and twisted family whose lives fell apart in their Chelsea mansion thirty years ago. You committed a serious crime and you're just in the streets because some small town Detective wants to keep an eye on you? The only interesting (though immensely unlikeable) character in this story is Henry whose obsession with Phin is the only engaging part of the narrative but only up to a point because after all that build-up, the climax will either have you rolling your eyes and/or laughing at its absurdity and/or throwing the book at the nearest wall in frustration (please take care not to do that if you’re using your e-reader, it’s not worth it! The Family Remains” isn’t as unsettling as “The Family Upstairs”, and it lacks the same thriller pacing; yet I found it to be a satisfying read.
