So, I’m back to reading some Riley Sager novels, and this one was definitely worth every adrenaline-pumping moment!
Jules Larsen has just landed a job that is absolutely too good to be true–she’s is being paid twelve grand to be an apartment-sitter at the prestigious Bartholomew in Manhattan. Sure, she has to follow so pretty strict rules–no visitors, no nights spent away from he apartment, and no disturbing the rather rich and famous residents–but this could be exactly what she needs to get her back on her feet.
Unless, of course, the job really is too good to be true, which Jules expects is the case when another apartment-sitter, Ingrid, disappears.
First of all, this novel is narrated near-flawlessly by Dylan Moore. The narration adds to the suspense and the intensity of the adrenaline-fueled scenes. I did get confused a couple of times when “Jules” was talking out loud and also narrating as I couldn’t always tell the difference.
Over-all, this is a truly twisted thriller. Just when I thought I’d figured it out, I realized exactly how wrong I was. There is something going on at the Bartholomew, but you’ll never guess what it is until Riley Sager wants you to know.
