#1 Bestselling Suspense Novelist Lisa Jewell

7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The St. Louis County Library Foundation Presents #1 Bestselling Suspense Novelist Lisa Jewell
Author of “The Family Remains”
(Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.)

#1 bestselling author Lisa Jewell presents a standalone sequel to her hit thriller “The Family Upstairs”--an intricate novel about twisted marriages, fractured families, and deadly obsessions. Early one morning, Detective Samuel Owusu is called to the scene of a gruesome discovery—bones connected to a cold case that left three people dead in a Chelsea mansion thirty years ago. Rachel Rimmer has also received a shock. Her husband, Michael, has been murdered in the cellar of his house in France. All signs point to an intruder, but his death raises questions that she very much doesn’t want to answer. Meanwhile Lucy Lamb’s brother has taken off on a quest to find the boy whose memory haunts their present. As they all race to find answers, they will discover that they’re connected in ways they could have never imagined.
