Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the tradition of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in Cabin 10, and Gone Girl comes an enthralling psychological thriller that spins one woman's seemingly good fortune, and another woman's mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception. SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life. The request seems odd, even intrusive—and for the two women who answer, the consequences are devastating. EMMA 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 occupant—and it does. JANE After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street she is instantly drawn to the space—and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home's 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 "Dazzling, startling, and above all cunning—a pitch-perfect novel of psychological suspense."—Lee Child "The 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 we're not provided either woman's answers."—The New York Times "J. P. Delaney builds the suspense."—Vanity Fair "Immediate guarantee: You will not be able to put this book down...? Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will realize that there's not only more where that came from, but it's also more thrilling."—American Booksellers Association

Professional reviews

"JP Delaney's intricate psychological thriller immediately entangles us, and the gifted narrators keep us spellbound. One Folgate Street, a minimalist architectural wonder, is available to the tenant who willingly goes through a rigorous application process and agrees to live by a demanding set of rules. Edward Monkford, the inscrutable world- famous designer, has created a technologically advanced "smart" house that monitors everything via sensors and cameras. Beginning each chapter, a male voice delivers Monkford's outrageous application questions, while in alternating chapters we hear the stories of two damaged women who fall for Monkford's mystique. Finty Williams is vital and convincing delineating Emma's unreliable persona, and Emilia Fox offers a sympathetic, intelligent Jane as she uncovers what really happened to THE GIRL BEFORE. Absolutely riveting. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
