Lock Every Door

No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.

Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew's sordid past and into the secrets kept within its walls. What she discovers pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent. 


My Review


Mr. Sager stated that he found inspiration from Rosemary's Baby for this book. This time I actually really did see the inspiration as well as experienced it within the pages of this book. Another similarity that I found reading this book was the short lived television show, 666 Park Avenue.

Right away I was hooked by what was happening with the Bartholomew. Jules as well as the rest of the tenants were very engaging. Because they were well drawn and not a lot of details were given about the tenants; this just added to the mystery.

I could not stop reading. The only times I did was when I made myself so that I could get some sleep. Mr. Sager has another bestseller on his hands with this latest offering. Lock Every Door will have you on the edge of your seat and looking over your shoulder!
