THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Looking for a suspense novel that will keep you up until way past midnight? Look no further than Lock Every Door, by Riley Sager.”—Stephen King No visitors. No nights spent elsewhere. No disturbing the rich and famous residents. These are the rules for Jules Larsen’s new job apartment sitting at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile buildings. Recently heartbroken—and just plain broke—Jules is taken in by the splendor and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind. As she gets to know the occupants and staff, Jules is drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who reminds her so much of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew has a dark history hidden beneath its gleaming façade, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story—until the next day when Ingrid seemingly vanishes. Searching for the truth, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s sordid past. But by uncovering the secrets within its walls, Jules exposes herself to untold terrors. Because once you’re in, the Bartholomew doesn’t want you to leave....

"ok so this is one of my first thrillers, and i loved it! it’s definitely a bit slow up until 75%, and I really thought i had predicted most of the plot. (both of those criticisms spurred by my love for thriller films). However, the last quarter?? wow. i could see it in my mind and i sped through it. The writing was engaging and the female character was great, despite my hesitations concerning a male author. it was definitely a fun, fast, and easy read. I won’t say it’s the greatest thriller or plot I have read, but I don’t regret picking it up. It’s definitely a good “in” to the genre. So much so that it actually infiltrated my dreams a bit, if only to attest to how good it was. I look forward to reading more of his books in the near future!"
" I had so much fun with this it was my first thriller mystery. It's a fun read it's a bit slow in the beginning but there's is some eerie moment sprinkled throughout those slow moment along with some mystery that make you feel pretty spooked which I love. the 50% mark is where it gets crazy Riley Sager does an amazing job of making you feel panicked for the main character like even I was trying to be quite for our girl Jules Imaoo. The vibes in the book are immaculate it takes place in New York in an old high end apartment building with gargoyles If was so easy to picture it because of the writing I was truly watching a movie in my head I loved The plot twist I didn't see it coming and was shocked by how it played out (I have since re read this and honestly I would probably now bump it up to a 5 stars instead of a 4 star because my only issue with it was the slow beginning but now after reading much slower thrillers I realize how great this one actually)"
