The Family Next Door
- Editor's Picks
The face of unimaginable horror
On January 14, 2018, a 17-year-old girl climbed out of the window of her Perris, California home and dialed 911 on a borrowed cell phone. Struggling to stay calm, she told the operator that she and her 12 siblings―ranging in age from 2 to 29―were being abused by their parents.
To their family, neighbors, and friends, Louise and David Turpin presented a picture of domestic bliss: dressing their 13 children in matching outfits and buying them expensive gifts. But what police discovered when they entered the Turpin family home would eclipse the most shocking child abuse cases in history. For years, David and Louise had kept their children in increasing isolation, trapping them in a sinister world of torture, fear, and near starvation.
"Glatt unflinchingly details the victims’ home circumstances...This chilling portrayal of abuse and secrecy may leave readers looking differently at their neighbors." ―Publishers Weekly
