About this deal

A: I wrote this sequel in an effort to comprehensively complete the stories of all of the characters from both books. Alix is a podcast journalist who interviews successful and fascinating women about their lives and careers. 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. It eventually takes Lucy’s son Marco and his tech savvy friend to break into Henry’s iPad and find where he’s gone.

I admit to being underwhelmed by The Family Upstairs, but The Family Remains has cast it in another light, and I am sorely tempted to reread it to see if I feel any differently about it now. There are several POVs and many mysteries to resolve, including the detective trying to solve the case, Rachel; a recently married jewelry designer, Lucy Lamb; who fled London 30 years ago; and her creepy brother, Henry, who, to put it mildly, has some issues.

This one is small and quiet by comparison about two women who live in the same corner of north London. In this masterful standalone sequel to her haunting New York Times bestseller, The Family Upstairs, Lisa Jewell proves she is writing at the height of her powers with another jaw-dropping, intricate, and affecting novel about the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love and uncover the truth.

Henry is a study in how a messed-up child still as an adult uses his artful skills of manipulation to get what he wants.Q: The Lamb family home plays a large role in the first novel, but it’s being sold off in this one and we barely spend any time in it. Will the detectives be able to unravel the mystery and find out what really happened all those years ago?
