Never have I read a book which was such a delicious combination of evil and thrill. The book literally knocked the socks off my feet. I was so excited, I had to remove them. Riley Sager has knocked this one out of the park. Every chapter was cleverly written to raise the suspense sky high. Evil was the great seducer, and Riley’s writing just paved the way for it to walk down the hallways of the building, Bartholomew.
Jules was hired as a house-sitter for 3 months with cash as payment. Down on her luck with no family or boyfriend or a home, she agreed. She met a couple of other house-sitters till one disappeared. Investigating on her own, she discovered the wickedness which had been seeping into the walls of the building over the years. What was it? What was the gorgoyle George hiding?
My first book by Riley; he was the brilliant mastermind who could paint the pages with fear and dread. I could complete the book in 4 hours as I couldn’t stop reading. Since the character could not leave the house at night, I knew something would happen then and the devil was in the building, soon on the way to pay her a visit. It was the anticipation and the routes of no-escape that kept me enthralled. Extremely thrilling!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher Ebury Digital, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

You’ve been offered a luxury apartment, rent free. The catch: you may not live long enough to enjoy it…
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents.
These are the only rules for Jules Larson’s new job as apartment sitter for an elusive resident of the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile private buildings and home to the super rich and famous.
Recently heartbroken and practically homeless, Jules accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
Out of place among the extremely wealthy, Jules finds herself pulled toward other apartment sitter Ingrid. But 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 – but the next day, her new friend has vanished.
And then Jules discovers that Ingrid is not the first temporary resident to go missing…
Welcome to the Bartholomew…You may never leave.
