Synopsis

The Girl Before by J. P. Delaney

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. The film is set to be directed by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard.

Reviews

'Dazzling - a pitch-perfect thriller' Lee Child

'I was instantly gripped and held captivated by the pace and elegant writing. I devoured it in two straight sittings' Peter James

'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

'The 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. Don't miss it.' Joseph Finder

'A masterfully crafted spellbinder ... guaranteed to astonish' Booklist

'Superior psychological suspense ... a cleverly constructed thriller' The Bookseller

'Riveting ... Writing with precision and grace, Delaney strips away the characters
secrets until the raw truth of each is revealed' Publishers Weekly
