'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.

Praise for The Girl Before

  • 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
