The Girl Before

31673811By: JP Delaney
Location: FIC DEL
Genre: Psychological thriller

A psychological thriller that spins one woman’s seemingly good fortune, and another woman’s mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception—and the hottest title at the 2015 Frankfurt Book Fair.

To control or to be controlled? that is the question. 

A damaged young woman gets the unique opportunity to rent a one-of-a-kind house. When she falls in love with the sexy, enigmatic architect who designed it, she has no idea she is following in the footsteps of the girl who came before: the house’s former tenant.

The eerie parallels in the two girls’ lives lay bare an enthralling story…and make this novel the must-read thriller of the season.

This book is going to make a fabulous movie.The movie rights have even been sold to Universal with Ron Howard to direct. While reading it, I kept visualizing the sleek, totally automated house and all the characters playing out their roles to the point of hearing the background music and the sound effects. Most of all, I could feel the uneasy periods of controlled silence. JP Delaney was very successful in bringing this story to life.
