Cos’è accaduto davvero tra quelle mura? Che fine hanno fatto gli altri abitanti della casa di Chelsea? E, soprattutto, in che modo quei drammatici eventi hanno a che fare con gli strani rumori che Libby sente provenire dal piano di sopra, benchè sia certa di essere sola in quella strana e tetra dimora?
Avvincente, claustrofobico thriller psicologico, che, tra suspense e colpi di scena, riesce a tenere il lettore inchiodato alla pagina, La famiglia del piano di sopra costituisce una splendida conferma del talento dell’autrice di Ellie all’improvviso.
«Pochi scrittori di suspense escogitano trame così piene di trappole; meno ancora sono quelli capaci di creare personaggi tanto umani e complessi. La famiglia del piano di sopra brilla come una lama e taglia ancora più a fondo». A. J. Finn
«Ricco, oscuro rompicapo, questo avvincente thriller mescola la saga familiare con il noir domestico con effetti da brivido». Ruth Ware

Una sera, sulla spiaggia, Alice scorge la sagoma di un uomo: seduto sulla sabbia umida, le braccia allacciate intorno alle ginocchia, l’uomo indossa solo jeans e camicia e sembra indifferente al vento che solleva spruzzi gelidi. Non è abbastanza malconcio per essere un vagabondo né abbastanza strano per essere un paziente del centro di salute mentale del paese. Ma ha un’aria talmente sperduta, uno sguardo così confuso e triste che Alice decide di avvicinarlo e di prestargli soccorso. L’uomo le rivela di non sapere nulla di sé, del perché si trova lì e di come ci è arrivato.
Tra gli sguardi increduli dei tre figli, Alice porta a casa lo sconosciuto e lo sistema nella piccola dépendance che di solito affitta, ma in quel momento è vuota. Una decisione avventata e di certo rischiosa, dato che quell’uomo in evidente stato confusionale e senza alcuna memoria del suo passato potrebbe essere chiunque.
Quella stessa sera, a Londra, Lily Monrose telefona alla polizia per denunciare la scomparsa di suo marito, Carl Monrose. Quando non lo ha visto tornare dal lavoro ha avuto la sensazione che un ghiacciolo le scivolasse lungo la schiena. Lei e Carl sono rientrati dal viaggio di nozze solo dieci giorni prima e lui si precipitava a casa tutte le sere appena finiva di lavorare, prima di svanire nel nulla lasciando dietro di sé una scia di inquietanti interrogativi, tra cui una falsa identità.
La soluzione di questi misteri sembra condurre a un evento accaduto ventitré anni prima, quando due adolescenti, Gray e Kirsty, in vacanza con i loro genitori in un pittoresco villaggio di mare, incontrarono un giovane un po’ singolare. Un giovane che aveva occhi solo per Kirsty.
Attraverso una trama capace di mantenere sempre alta la tensione, e grazie a una scrittura dal ritmo incalzante, Lisa Jewell ci consegna un romanzo dalla suspense travolgente e dagli esiti totalmente inaspettati.
«Lisa Jewell è una meravigliosa narratrice: i suoi personaggi sono credibili, la scrittura è forte e poetica e la narrazione è ricca di suspense e colpi di scena».
«Il modo di raccontare di Lisa Jewell è così emotivamente realistico che è impossibile non essere coinvolti… Un po’ giallo, un po’ thriller e un po’ storia d’amore, questo romanzo vi terrà incollati alla sedia».
