The House by Simon Lelic

About the Book

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. But that was a mistake.

Because a body has been discovered.
Right outside their back door.

And now the police are watching them...
