Title: Lock Every Door 
Author: Riley Sager 
Pages: 384
Publishing: July 2nd 2019 by Dutton 


No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen's new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When 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 . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.

Searching for the truth about Ingrid's disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew's dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building's hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.


I absolutely love everything Riley Sager touches. Seriously, both of his previous books were so entertaining and Lock Every Door is his best book yet! I loved it from the first page to the very last. The setting was eerie and captivating, and the characters had me drawn in instantly. I was really hoping Sager's novels would continue to get better and better... and so far he has not disappointed me. Lock Every Door is filled with suspense and intrigue from the first page to the very last sentence. I wanted to read it all in one sitting! 

I would highly recommend this read if you are a fan of suspense novels or if you've read either of Sager's previous novels. I don't give out five stars very frequently, but this novel definitely deserved it. Thank you to NetGalley and Dutton for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 5/5
