The request seems odd, even intrusiveâand for the two women who answer, the consequences are devastating.
Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupantâand it does.
After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street she is instantly drawn to the spaceâand to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the homeâs previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror, as the girl before.
Praise for The Girl Before
âDazzling, startling, and above all cunningâa pitch-perfect novel of psychological suspense.ââLee Child
âThe Girl Before generates a fast pace. . . . [J. P.] Delaney intersperses ethics questions on stand-alone pages throughout the book. . . . The single most ingenious touch is that weâre not provided either womanâs answers.ââThe New York Times
âJ. P. Delaney builds the suspense.ââVanity Fair
âImmediate guarantee: You will not be able to put this book down. . . . Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will realize that thereâs not only more where that came from, but itâs also more thrilling.ââAmerican Booksellers Association
âThis is going to be the buzziest book of 2017. We may only be a few weeks into 2017, but weâre calling it early: This year, The Girl Before will be that book. The upcoming novel by author J. P. Delaney has all of the makings of a sexy murder mystery that is sure to hit the bestseller chart, and it already has the movie deal to prove it.ââInStyle
âDelaney has created a genuinely eerie, fascinating setting in One Folgate Street. . . . The novelâs structure, volleying back and forth as first Emma and then Jane begin to question their improbable luck, is beautifully handled. The pages fly.ââUSA Today
âThe house has a dark past and a landlord thatâs anything but welcoming.ââNew York Post, one of the must-read books of the week
âThe Girl Before is deservedly anointed the âtop girlâ of this seasonâs suspense novels.ââThe Washington Post
âThe Girl Before is a cat-and-mouse game that toys with our expectations and twists our sympathies. At times almost unbearably suspenseful, it keeps us guessing from the first page to the very last. Donât miss it.ââJoseph Finder
