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.
"The author delivers the kind of unpredictable conclusion that all thriller readers crave - utterly shocking yet craftily foreshadowed." (New York Times Book Review)

Interesting Story Irritating Characters
Very interesting idea, but I found the main female characters so intensely irritating - relentlessly cute and occasionally contemplative only in a way reminiscent of social media updates - that they distracted from the story. To add to the irritation, Ingrid was given such a gratingly childish voice that her disappearance half way through the book was a welcome relief.
