FREE First Chapter: The Girl Before

Regular Price:£0.00

Publisher's Summary

Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection...but can you pay the price? For all fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl comes this spellbinding Hitchcockian thriller which takes psychological suspense to the next level.

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultraminimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules. After moving in she discovers that a previous tenant, Emma, met a mysterious death there - and starts to wonder if her own story will be a rerun of the girl before.

As twist after twist catches the listener off guard, Emma's past and Jane's present become inexorably entwined in this tense portrayal of psychological obsession.

Following in the footsteps of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, The Girl Before is being brought to the big screen. The film is set to be directed by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard.

What the Critics Say

"Dazzling - a pitch-perfect thriller." (Lee Child)
"I was instantly gripped and held captivated by the pace and elegant writing. I devoured it in two straight sittings." (Peter James)
"Riveting! One of the most compelling page-turners I've read in years. Twisty, turny, and with an ending not to be missed!" (Lisa Gardner)
"The Girl Before is a cat-and-mouse game that toys with our expectations and twists our sympathies. At times almost unbearably suspenseful, it keeps us guessing from the first page to the very last. Don't miss it." (Joseph Finder)

    Story
    "somewhat disappointing"

    This story was captivating to begin with but too long-winded in the story length but narrators were convincing.

    Always got a book on the go - Love most sci-fi genres, a psychological thriller or apocyliptic tale; or just great fictional writing...

    "not enough to get the gist"

    literally 2 minutes. I'm sure it's a great book but listening to this first chapter doesn't give any insight!
