The next heart-pounding thriller from New York Times bestselling author Riley Sager follows a young woman whose new job apartment sitting in one of New York’s oldest and most glamorous buildings may cost more than it pays.

No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When 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 . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.

Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s sordid past and into the secrets kept within its walls. What she discovers pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

My Review

When something sounds too good to be true, isn’t it usually? This was most definitely the case for Jules as she agrees to apartment sit this amazing place inside a beautiful old building in NYC. The rules that she must follow seem a bit strange but the amount of money that she would receive is well worth it to Jules.

I loved this book as I have loved the other books written by Riley Sager. The story flowed effortlessly and keep me wanted to know more and more. It did take a weird twist for a minute that turned me off a bit but then it untwisted itself.

I gave this book 5 crowns.

I received this E-ARC from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
