Lock Every Door By Riley Sager – 4/5 ⭐️
This is my second Riley Sager novel. I really loved The Last Time I Lied (read it!), and I really did enjoy this one too. Not quite as much, but this one keeps you thinking and wondering what’s going on. It took me until the end to really grasp it, and it’s definitely different!
Here is the goodreads synopsis: “No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind. As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When 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—until the next day, when Ingrid disappears. Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.”
This is a quick read and I was sucked in! If you enjoy psychological thrillers, I think you will enjoy this one and I recommend picking it up! It’s well written and definitely intriguing.
