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)

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 😊

What an awesome thriller

Seriously awesome. The narrative voice was diverse and pronounced and the plot was dark, disturbing, and gritty. Great thriller.

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.

Fast paced book that will leave your heart racing!

Great story from Riley Sager, lots of action and nail-biting moments. Not one for the faint-hearted. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, certainly different.

Lighthearted but enjoyable

This isn’t going on my list of life changing books, but it did keep me entertained for a few days, I enjoyed it for what it was - lighthearted mystery with some twists and turns, which kept it interesting

Ripping yarn!

Loved it! Great narration really brought characters to life, great setting as well!. Interesting update on another well known horror story set in an NYC apartment (won't reveal title as may give too much away). Some subtle social commentary as well. Felt pop ace could have been better in some parts but will definitely read more.

Creepy

A bit of a slow start with lots of build up but a very exciting ending with an unexpected twist! I thought I had it figured out and started to get a bit bored but the last few chapters piqued my interest again. Some very dark and scary subject matter got me pretty jumpy in real life!

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.
