Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection . . . but can you pay the price?
Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultra-minimalist 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 re-run of the girl before. As twist after twist catches the reader off guard, Emma's past and Jane's present become inexorably entwined in this tense, page-turning 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 by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard.
'A deeply addictive literary thriller that deserves to be one of this year's biggest successes' Daily Express
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This is a book you’ll want an opinion on. It’s got a Hollywood adaptation incoming (directed by Ron Howard, no less) and could easily become the world’s next water-cooler crime thriller. Here’s our take: it’s an elite page-turner that at times left us gasping for air. We follow Jane, whose dream rental opportunity quickly becomes a waking nightmare. She becomes obsessed with a previous tenant, Emma, who died in the gorgeous-but-terrifying property. Delaney writes with delicious poise—no mean feat considering the endless twists we’re treated to.

A thrilling twist
Loved the book. At the start, It may be very easy to lose interest as it takes quite a while for the plot to begin. However, I would definitely recommend you to read till the end. Halfway through the book I was so intrigued that I couldn’t put it down. This novel really keeps you on your toes.
I'm sorry but this is no Girl On A Train! I'm about a third of the way through but no plot has appeared and it's drifted into some sort of Fifty Shades territory, with writing to match! Maybe it improves but I sincerely doubt it, so given up.
I am a third of a way through it and I think I am going to agree with DavidHaues above. i bought it by error on my Kindle and couldnt find the button to send it back. I think it is a waste of my time to continue reading it!!
