Review of Lucy Foley’s  The Paris Apartment

Full disclosure, I received an eGalley of this book prior to publication in exchange for a review.

Lucy Foley has a talent for a certain kind of Thriller.  She collects a group of entitled, mostly unlikeable characters in an isolated location, makes sure there are plenty of secrets nobody wants revealed, empowers an unreliable narrator and multiple points of view, and sets the story in motion.  

Sometimes part of the mystery is who is actually dead.  Sometimes the location has a large role in the action.  Sometimes the unreliable narrator turns out to be likable, sometimes not.  

The Paris Apartment does not disappoint. Foley keeps the reader on the edge of her seat the whole way through and there are a few surprises which will delight fans.  

Journalist Ben is living large in an apartment in Paris that his friend helped him get.  His sister comes to visit and finds he has disappeared and that the residents of the building are more than a little strange. To tell much more would spoil the novel, so I won’t…

Definitely recommended for thriller fans!
