"As you patiently await season two of Only Murders in the Building, cozy up with Lucy Foley’s latest whodunnit." -- Parade

"Exceedingly clever." -- Booklist

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Guest List comes a new locked room mystery, set in a Paris apartment building in which every resident has something to hide… 

Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there.

The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question.

The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge

Everyone's a neighbor. Everyone's a suspect. And everyone knows something they’re not telling.


  • Quite the fun read! Jaw dropping

    It usually takes me forever to finish a book, but not this one. I was always excited to pick it back up, it moves rather quickly. I loved that French was sprinkled throughout the book. (If you buy it digitally, it will be easier to look up exact translations). Loved the secrets and twists, it literally had my jaw dropping a few times!
  • Slow Read

    This is a very slow read. This book could have been wrapped up in 150 pages less. The plot twists were not shocking and the ending was ehhh
  • Excellent read!

  • A no

    By CoolCat9984
    Not well written, vulgar, and no characters to root for.
  • Loved it

    By MadKatie22
    Only reason I’m not putting 5 stars is because I feel like the ending could have been better. Other than that this book is a must read.
  • So good

    By JTayH
    This is probably my favorite book of hers. The story was really interesting and I couldn’t put it down until I figured out what was going on. Definitely recommend.
  • Such a waste of time

    My book club read it and only two of us even finished it. Her other books are better.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed!

    By JBNKKI26
    The characters is this book we’re interesting and relatable. I have a soft spot for Paris and could really imagine being there throughout. Very clever. Couldn’t put it down.
