'This is going to be the buzziest book of 2017 . . . This year The Girl Before will be that book' InStyle
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.
This book is a thrilling read. The more you read the more the house takes on a personality of it's own. - The Big Book Club
J.P. Delaney (whoever she or he actually is) gives us not just three extraordinary human characters - all of them, in their way, monsters of manipulation - but a house which becomes the book's fourth character. An uncomfortable place to live in every sense. - Australian Women's Weekly
Dazzling - a pitch-perfect thriller - Lee Child
Riveting! One of the most compelling page-turners I've read in years. Twisty, turny, and with an ending not to be missed! - Lisa Gardner
This is probably the best novel you'll read all year. - Country Style
