Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling novel from bestselling author John Marrs, a young couple’s house hides terrible secrets—and not all of them are confined to the past.

Mia and Finn are busy turning a derelict house into their dream home when Mia unexpectedly falls pregnant. But just when they think the house is ready, Mia discovers a shocking message scored into a skirting board: I WILL SAVE THEM FROM THE ATTIC. Following the clue up into the eaves, the couple make a gruesome discovery: their home was once a real-life murder house, with the evidence still concealed within the four walls.

In the wake of their traumatic discovery, the baby arrives and Mia can’t shake her fixation with the monstrous crimes that happened right above them. Tormented by the terrible things she saw, she is desperate to dig into the past to find answers.

Secrecy shrouds the mystery of the attic, but when shards of a dark truth start to emerge, Mia realises the danger is terrifyingly present. She is prepared to do anything to protect her family—but will the previous tenants stop her from discovering their secret?

What a great twisty plot.

Not at all what I was expecting & so well done on the twists. Looks like I’ve added another author to my collection.

wow wow wow

This is the first book I have read from this author and I'm now hooked and can't wait to read more! There were so many twists in this story that I seriously thought the book had concluded at 3 points only to find more story to go (to my excitement)! The ending was perfect as well and I find myself thinking about the book a lot - a classic sign of a great read!

What, who, where, how?!? Must read!

This book is absolutely wonderful. Just when you think it is going in One Direction and you have picked the twist (and know what is going on) Something else comes at you!!! Definitely a must read for anyone who likes, psychological thrillers and likes to be surprised by twists.

It was a slow burn

It was definitely a slow burn which initially annoyed me however it all comes together in the end. I think the ending was done well.

Great twists

I enjoyed the twisty, turny journey this dark thriller took me through initially.
However, I felt once the story reached its climax towards the last quarter, it suddenly turned into a slow burn, with the author adding more and more
unnecessary twists. Subsequently, what could have been a great, dark thriller turned into a far fetched tale that dragged on and on and just wouldn't end. It got boring.
Performance was brilliant by all narrators.
