About the book

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

THE SUNDAY TIMES THRILLER OF THE MONTH

THE SIMON MAYO RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB CHOICE

'This is going to be the buzziest book of 2017 . . . This year The Girl Before will be that book' InStyle

'A girl thriller that outdoes Paula Hawkins' Sunday Times

Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection . . . but can you pay the price?

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules. After moving in, she discovers that a previous tenant, Emma, met a mysterious death there - and starts to wonder if her own story will be a re-run of the girl before. As twist after twist catches the reader off guard, Emma's past and Jane's present become inexorably entwined in this tense, page-turning portrayal of psychological obsession.

Following in the footsteps of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, The Girl Before is being brought to the big screen by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard.

'A really clever thriller . . . [the film] will no doubt become the third big "Girl" film' Daily Mail

'A deeply addictive literary thriller that deserves to be one of this year's biggest successes' Daily Express
