You thought they were just staying for the weekend. They looked harmless enough – with only two suitcases and a cat in a wicker box. But soon things turn very, very dark. It happens slowly, yet so extraordinarily quickly. Now you and your sister must find a way to survive…
It begins with a text. The baby is back. This psychological thriller was full of some very messed up people. From three different viewpoints, telling the past and present.
It’s been 25 years since the police walked into 16 Cheyne Walk in Chelsea, London to find the bodies of the wealthy Lambs along with an unknown man, laid out in the kitchen, an apparent suicide pact. The children are nowhere to be found. Except for a baby, alive and well in the crib upstairs.
The mansion has stood empty all these years. Until the baby turns 25. Libby has no idea what happened to her parents and siblings. Having been adopted into a loving home. She knew that something would happen on her birthday but had no idea it would be the mansion. Now she wants answers. What happened in this house? And where are the children?
I read this shocker straight through. Talk about a horror show! Any thoughts I had about who was who and what happened were blown out of the water quickly with the ending.
Fast-paced and horrific! It was wonderful!
