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.

Good read

I didn’t put it down from the time I picked it up. I love this author’s previous books & have been eyeing the release date for this one. It isn’t crazy action packed from the staff but it’s plenty interesting enough for you to want to solve the mystery. Maybe not the best book by Sager, but still really enjoyable & for sure worth the read.

Couldn’t put it down!

I have now red all three of Riley Sager’s books and each one had an ending that I didn’t see coming. So well written. I hope he comes out with more books soon!

A Stunning Disappointment

One of my favorite books is Riley Sager’s “The Last Time I Lied” so I just knew his next effort would be amazing. The only thing shocking about this book was how disappointing it was. There’s nothing even interesting until the very end of the book, and that ending...a complete ripoff of a book which title escapes me having read it decades ago, a John Saul plot if I remember the author correctly.
