The Girl Before

A Novel

(2)
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the tradition of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in Cabin 10, and Gone Girl comes an enthralling psychological thriller that spins one woman's seemingly good fortune, and another woman's mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD

Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life.

The request seems odd, even intrusive-and for the two women who answer, the consequences are devastating.

EMMA
Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupant-and it does.

JANE
After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street she is instantly drawn to the space-and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home's previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror, as the girl before.

Praise for The Girl Before

"Dazzling, startling, and above all cunning-a pitch-perfect novel of psychological suspense."-Lee Child

"The Girl Before generates a fast pace. . . . [J. P.] Delaney intersperses ethics questions on stand-alone pages throughout the book. . . . The single most ingenious touch is that we're not provided either woman's answers."-The New York Times

"J. P. Delaney builds the suspense."-Vanity Fair

"Immediate guarantee: You will not be able to put this book down. . . . Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will realize that there's not only more where that came from, but it's also more thrilling."-American Booksellers Association

„A gripping novel, which reminded me of The Girl on the Train... “

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

There was a girl. You resemble her quite a bit, actually, physically. Now she's dead. She died over there, at the bottom of those stairs. In the very house you're living in right now. But don't ye worry. You're safe, Jane*.

*side note: She wasn't. Not at all.

„This is it - the next Girl!“

Ulrike Müller, Thalia-Buchhandlung Fulda

Gone Girl was followed by Girl on the Train...and a huge wave of other Girls, but none had such an original setting, clever constructed plot and surprising twist as Delayne's Girl Before! Good Girl!
