The Girl Before – JP Delaney

This book has everything that you need in a good mystery. Intrigue, violence, a multitude of suspects, and countless twists and turns. JP Delaney (a pseudonym) has crafted one of the best page-turners I have picked up in a long time.

The book flips back and forth between time periods and two different women, Emma and Jane. They have both have suffered recent tragedies in their lives, and they find shelter in an unlikely apartment. One Folgate Street is an architectural masterpiece; it offers clean lines, simplicity, high tech gadgetry, and a list of house rules a mile long. The psychological aspects of the home are intriguing. Can minimalism, lighting, and data improve a person’s well being? Or is it control at the highest level? One of these gals meets a violent end, and every person is a suspect. I can usually spot a killer from a mile away, but this one kept me guessing.

Word on the street is that Ron Howard is now attached to direct the film version of this thriller. I can’t wait!
