The family next door : the heartbreaking imprisonment of the thirteen Turpin siblings and their extraordinary rescue


To their family and neighbours, the Turpins were a seemingly normal family, but what police discovered when they entered their 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, abuse, and near starvation. In the first major account of the case, investigative journalist and author John Glatt delves into the disturbing details and recounts the bravery of the 13 siblings in the face of unimaginable horror.
