Publisher's 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)

This was my first Riley Sager book but will not be the last. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

A nice twist at the end

This book really kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happens next, and the twist at the end was no-where near where I thought the book would end up.

My only issue was the narrator, as she did most characters well but some of her voices sounded drugged or like real idiots...or perhaps that was what she was aiming.

Fantastic and full of surprises

Riveting story and performance. Keeps you guessing and listening. Up there in anticipation and twists like The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Fantastic and captivating story

Storyline and characters were absolutely fabulous. I loved the twists and found myself not wanting to turn the book off!

I did find the narration was slightly irritating, a little bit too childlike. The may characters narration was good, but the other female characters were too babyish for me.

No hotels for me

This is a good read. A little far fetched I think but still a bit of fun. I like the narrator and even coped with the American accent. Might try another one from Riley

Annoying Narration .

Overall a good listen for the car. Although the narrator is quite good, her character voices were so annoying it nearly made me quit the book early on but like with most I pushed through and it gets less grating over time. Pretty decent story although I picked the twist early on and found the ending a bit syrupy. It will inevitably make a good b grade horror flick.

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.

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 😊

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.

Ridiculous!!!

It was a reasonably easy listen with great narration, but the plot is utterly ridiculous! I didn’t see the twist coming, but that isn’t always a good thing. In this case, it wasn’t!

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.
