Editorial Reviews


“This book stands apart for its expert pacing and plotting, and for its exploration of the complexity of financial disparities in relationships, friendships between generations, and the London housing crisis . . . Sure to please readers looking for thrillers in the vein of Lisa Jewell and Aimee Molloy; a single-sitting page-turner with character and thematic depth.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“This ingenious psychological thriller from British author Candlish (
Those People) has more bends and turns than the Thames River . . . Dalliances form, alliances abound, and deception is rampant. Candlish’s clever commuter horror offers enough stupefying chills to reward old fans and invite new ones.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Candlish never lets the tension slacken as deep discussions of income disparity, aging, love and loss keep readers’ loyalties shifting between characters. There’s the potential for at least one character, perhaps more, to appear in another novel. It would be thrilling to see them again. The villains in
The Other Passenger are never held at arm’s length. We care, even as their ordinary lives turn monstrous.” —BookPage (starred review)

"Candlish’s story is a stiletto take on desire and ambition and the power of possession, and one of the most entertaining and seductive thrillers coming this summer.” —
Minneapolis Sar Tribune

“Candlish brings a Hitchcockian sense of the uncanny to her latest thriller, which features two friendly neighbors, co-commuters on the local ferry. When one of them goes missing, the other finds himself under accusation. Their friendship is real, but our protagonist is forced to question everything he thought he knew about her relationships and the community around him.” —

"Psychological suspense at its most elegant and sinister." —
A.J. Finn

"Just brilliant; gripping from the first page with an incredible first-person narrative and a sense of place that pulls you through the pages fast enough to make your head spin. Louise Candlish just gets better and better. I love her." —
Lisa Jewell

"I'm a HUGE fan of Louise Candlish's writing, but she really knocks it out of the park with this one, with its Hitchcockian atmosphere of mounting dread and almost unbearable suspense, building to its astonishing conclusion. A must-read." —
Lucy Foley

"Louise Candlish is the queen of the sucker-punch twist." —
Ruth Ware

"A gripping read with a brilliant first-person narrative. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. It’s so good!" —
B.A. Paris

Hello and welcome! I am the bestselling author of 15 novels - a fact I can't quite believe myself - and my books are published all over the world. I've just announced my 2023 release: THE ONLY SUSPECT. Watch this space for more on that!

OUR HOUSE is the one you may be most familiar with as it's on our screens as a major four-part ITV drama starring Martin Compston, Tuppence Middleton and Rupert Penry-Jones. This is the novel that turned my career around - right when I was about to give up. It won the 2019 British Book Awards Book of the Year - Crime & Thriller and was shortlisted for the Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award, the Capital Crime Amazon Publishing Best Crime Novel of the Year Award​, and the Audible Sounds of Crime Award. It was also longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award and the Specsavers National Book Awards.

I couldn't have asked for more, really, and feel so proud that readers are continuing to discover it and recommend it far and wide.

THE HEIGHTS is my newest book - it's a twisty revenge thriller whose narrator, Ellen, has a strange fear of heights known as 'high place phenomenon'. You could say she's my most Hitchcock-inspired character yet... I can't wait for you to read it and and tell me if you're Team Ellen or not ;-) The book is in development for a TV series, so fingers crossed...

Also out now is THE OTHER PASSENGER (I call it 'commuter noir'), one of the biggest sellers of the Covid-19 lockdown (a dubious honour) and my first ever Richard & Judy Book Club pick. It was longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award 2021, which makes me very happy.

A bit about me: I live in a South London neighbourhood not unlike the one in my books, with my husband, teenage daughter, and a fox-red Labrador called Bertie who is the apple of my eye. Books, TV and long walks are my passions - oh, and drinking wine in the sun with family and friends. My favourite authors include Tom Wolfe, Patricia Highsmith and Agatha Christie.

Get up-to-date offers by clicking on the yellow 'Follow' button under my pic. For more book news (and doting pictures of Bertie, regularly updated!), catch me on Twitter @louise_candlish, on Instagram @louisecandlish or I'd love to hear from you.
