The Girl Before/J.P. Delaney/336 pgs.
The house at One Folgate Street is a bit of an oddity. The architect, Edward, is a minimalist, and is very particular to whom he rents the house. This is the story of two renters: Emma and Jane. In alternating chapters, the story unfolds about these two tenants, always with an undertone of unease. I don't want to give anything away, but suffice it to say, there are secrets, suspense--and quite a few surprises. Highly recommended! Also, Ron Howard plans on making a movie from it. The book has been likened to Girl On a Train, and Gone Girl. In my opinion, The Girl Before outshines both of them.
