My score: A-

Discuss a wild experience!!! The Paris Apartment was one heck of an fascinating and twisty learn. Surprises had been sprinkled all through the e-book — one thing I respect since so many thrillers save all of the twists and suprises for the top — and I completely devoured this one! (Value noting this e-book appears to be polarizing however I’m within the camp of people that actually loved it.) I discovered myself noticing the creator’s creativity on this story again and again and completely advocate it to anybody who loves suspenseful thrillers. It was crammed with pressure and questionable characters and was one of the partaking books I’ve learn shortly.

The e-book begins when Jess arrives in Paris for the primary time to go to her brother Ben. She arrives at his condo and rapidly notices one thing is off. He’s not there and never answering his calls. His neighbors bristle at her questions and the tires his Vespa look like slashed. And, additionally, his condo is wonderful. How may he attainable afford such a high-end place on a struggling journalist’s wage?

As Jess begins looking for Ben increasingly more questions start to floor, questions that make her critically involved for her brother’s security… and likewise her personal. Who’re Ben’s neighbors? Why does she get the sensation they know extra about her brother than they’re keen to share? Who can she belief? And can she ever see her brother once more?
