Product Description

Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection . . . but can you pay the price?

For all fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl comes this spellbinding Hitchcockian thriller which takes psychological suspense to the next level.

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.

About the Author

The Girl Before is the first psychological thriller from JP Delaney, a pseudonym for a writer who has previously written bestselling fiction under other names. It is being published in thirty-five countries. A film version is being brought to the screen by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard.

    I loved this book! The characters were so well developed and the storyline was fantastic. I love books that you don't expect the ending and that was certainly the case with this book.

      Comments about The Girl Before:

      I was looking for a similar read to the likes of Sidney Shelton and found this one. It's not as intense but still a great read and I enjoyed the entwined stories of the two leading characters. A page turner til the end.

I devoured it in two straight sittings Peter James A remarkably poised (debut) psychological thriller The Sunday Times Dazzling - a pitch-perfect thriller Lee Child The tension is built up subtly, leading to a devastating climax. A really clever thriller ... [the film] will no doubt become the third big 'Girl' film Daily Mail Riveting! One of the most compelling page-turners I've read in years. Twisty, turny, and with an ending not to be missed!
