Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

This place isn’t kind to gentle souls. It chews them up and swallows them whole

I’m always nervous walking into a book that receives alot of hype. I usually end up an unpopular opinion. The Last Time I Lied wasn’t successful for me, but I did love Final Girls. So this was a bit of a deal breaker.

As the saying goes, “third time’s a charm”. I was hooked from the start! Even though I had figured out the “who” part early on, I still found myself enjoying the story, especially with that fucked up twist near the end.

I don’t want to say too much since it’s a hard one to review without spoilers, but if you’re a fan of American Horror Story, you’ll like this one.

Have you read it? Have you read any of his other books?

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.

  1. I think I enjoyed the book, but I’m not sure 😀 Ahah. It was a very easy and quick read, and I was interested in reading and finding out the main twist, but the “now and then” part wasn’t done that well, which disappointed me a bit.
