Summary

You've been offered a luxury apartment, rent free. The catch: you may not live long enough to enjoy it....

No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents. 

These are the only rules for Jules Larson's new job as apartment sitter for an elusive resident of the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile private buildings and home to the super rich and famous.

Recently heartbroken and practically homeless, Jules accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

Out of place among the extremely wealthy, Jules finds herself pulled toward other apartment sitter Ingrid. But Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her. Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story - but the next day, her new friend has vanished. And then Jules discovers that Ingrid is not the first temporary resident to go missing....

Welcome to the Bartholomew...you may never leave.

Critic reviews

"The author delivers the kind of unpredictable conclusion that all thriller readers crave - utterly shocking yet craftily foreshadowed." (New York Times Book Review)

Must read

What a fantastic thriller! Kept me on the edge of my seat!
Jules is a perfect character, you end up really gunning for her.
Excellent ending, all those loose ends get tied up nicely 😊

Recommended!

I enjoy a good thriller and this has ticked every box! I loved the plot and the performance and couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Skilled writer who develops the plot beautifully, brings in turns and twists and makes use of elegant descriptive prose where the opportunity arises. Have recommended to all my friends who enjoy this genre!

Entertaining

Second Riley Sager book I’ve listened too and enjoyed. Mysterious, creepy, enjoyable. Narrator can be a little irritating but not enough to stop me from listening.

Gripping

I really enjoyed this book. It was chilling and very well written. The narrator was convincing and made the characters very believable. The story was very unusual and there were lots of twists and turns. It visual description was exceptional.

Genuinely have no idea who this book is for...

Poorly plotted, badly written, drowning in cliches and stereotypes. I’m mystified as to whom the writer is actually writing for. Teen girls? But surely in this post me too era of social and political activism any self respecting teenage girl would view this as nonsensical twaddle.

A little predictable

A good story but guessed early on and wrapped up very quickly which felt rushed

Fun book but not a good book

Main character was overly described as a poor plain women. Employed as a flat sitter, her friends warn her about it but she continues anyway and ends up discovering horrifying secrets. The book was fun and quick read it was slow in the middle, there are several ideas that don't quite work... How she works out the mystery why on earth she makes some decisions she does. As the headlines states its a fun read but don't expect to be blown away by it

Interesting Story Irritating Characters

Very interesting idea, but I found the main female characters so intensely irritating - relentlessly cute and occasionally contemplative only in a way reminiscent of social media updates - that they distracted from the story. To add to the irritation, Ingrid was given such a gratingly childish voice that her disappearance half way through the book was a welcome relief.
