The Paris Apartment
Lucy Foley, author of the New York Times bestseller The Guest List, is back with another locked room mystery--this one set in the City of Light.
The page-turning novel opens with Ben Daniels, journalist and aspiring novelist, leaving a voicemail for his half-sister, Jess Hadley, giving her directions to his apartment at 12 Rue des Amants. But as he finishes his message, someone uses a key to open his door. By the time Jess arrives at the "swanky apartment building," there's no sign of Ben. Luckily, Jess knows how to pick a lock. Oddly, he's left his keys and wallet behind. As Ben's disappearance grows into days, Jess meets the residents, one by one: Antoine, who's convinced his wife was having an affair with Ben; penthouse resident Sophie Meuniere, who's being blackmailed; 20-year-old Mimi on the fourth floor, with a crush on Ben; and the meddling concierge. The tension builds as they tell their stories in first person--revealing that none is a fan of Benjamin Daniels.
