Description

Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there.
The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question.
The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge
Everyone’s a neighbor. Everyone’s a suspect. And everyone knows something they’re not telling.

Praise for the book

An Amazon Best Book of February 2022: Lucy Foley follows up 2020’s excellent The Guest List by transporting readers to Paris for another unsettling tale. Out of a job and broke, Jess opts for free bed and board at her half-brother Ben’s Paris apartment. Except when she arrives, Ben is nowhere to be found though he doesn’t appear to have left the building. Able to get into his (suspiciously) upscale apartment, Jess is keenly aware that the building’s other residents aren’t exactly thrilled by her presence. Foley specializes in clever takes on closed circle mysteries and in The Paris Apartment, the list of suspects in Ben’s disappearance is confined to the residents of the building—from the concierge to an elderly woman—though the building itself may be guarding secrets, too. A slow-burn thriller with a dark, glowering plot, The Paris Apartment is another serving of escapism which takes a turn that will leave readers breathless. —Vannessa Cronin, Amazon Editor Review "Another clever, cliff-hanger-filled thriller from the author of The Guest List." -- People “Told in rotating points of view, this Tilt-A-Whirl of a novel brims with jangly tension – an undeniably engrossing guessing game.” -- Vogue “Another page-turning thriller in which the story and its characters are as unique and beguiling as the city itself. … [Foley] keeps readers on their toes with a fast-paced story in which she does a stellar job of juggling the past and the present with multiple narratives without getting bogged down. You can feel the urgency in her prose. … A thrilling read.” -- USA Today “A transcontinental whodunnit with chic panache, this page-turner will keep you up into the wee hours of the night.” -- Good Morning America "The streets of Paris have never looked darker, more opulent, or more sinister than in Lucy Foley's gloriously twisty new novel." -- Ruth Ware “Extremely evocative, with a richly-drawn atmosphere you can cut with a knife. Short of a trip to Paris, the next best thing is surely to settle down with a bottle of French wine and devour The Paris Apartment. The mystery revolves around an exclusive Paris apartment building, and Jess, our hugely likeable heroine, searching for her brother, who is missing from his apartment. The other tenants all have secrets to hide, and twist follows twist until you don’t know who to trust -- or suspect. Stylish, suspenseful, claustrophobic and menacing... Lucy Foley just keeps getting better and better. More, please!” -- Alex Michealides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient “The Paris Apartment is a charged, charming thriller that'll have us all eyeing the neighbors a bit skeptically, no matter where it is we live.” -- Town & Country "As you patiently await season two of Only Murders in the Building, cozy up with Lucy Foley’s latest whodunnit." -- Parade "Another well-paced, suspenseful locked-room mystery with shifting points of view.” -- Library Journal “Will keep you guessing until the very end. …This whodunnit will have you saying, ‘Oh mon Dieu!’” -- E!
