My ranking: A-

Speak about a wild experience!!! The Paris Apartment was one heck of an attention-grabbing and twisty learn. Surprises had been sprinkled all through the guide — one thing I admire since so many thrillers save all of the twists and suprises for the tip — and I completely devoured this one! (Value noting this guide appears to be polarizing however I’m within the camp of people that actually loved it.) I discovered myself noticing the creator’s creativity on this story again and again and completely suggest it to anybody who loves suspenseful thrillers. It was crammed with stress and questionable characters and was some of the partaking books I’ve learn shortly.

The guide begins when Jess arrives in Paris for the primary time to go to her brother Ben. She arrives at his condominium and rapidly notices one thing is off. He’s not there and never answering his calls. His neighbors bristle at her questions and the tires his Vespa seem like slashed. And, additionally, his condominium is superb. How might he doable afford such a high-end place on a struggling journalist’s wage?

As Jess begins trying to find Ben increasingly questions start to floor, questions that make her critically involved for her brother’s security… and likewise her personal. Who’re Ben’s neighbors? Why does she get the sensation they know extra about her brother than they’re keen to share? Who can she belief? And can she ever see her brother once more?
