Lock Every Door
Lock Every Door: A Novel | Riley Sager
The next heart-pounding thriller from New York Times bestselling author Riley Sager follows a young woman whose new job apartment sitting in one of New Yorks oldest and most glamorous buildings may cost more than it pays. 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 Larsens 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, disturbingly 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 Ingrids disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew's dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the buildings hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

I enjoyed this book, but it wasnt as gripping as many other thrillers for me. It had some interesting moments but also had times where it seemed to drag for a while.

Wow! This book is hauntingly good. It's just the right amount of creepy intrigue and believability for me. I like thrillers that make you think but also don't give away everything before it gets there. It was a shocking page turner.

3/4 worth of boring with a decent ending. Not sure if was worth the struggle to finish but I did think it was a solid final push. If this book was a cat, I would obviously adopt it but it would not be my favourite.

britt_brooke Love your last line! 😆 Great review. 2d
Hooked_on_books You‘ve managed to describe how I feel about the two books of his I read. He seems to do a whole of writing with the barest whisp of a plot. I don‘t get the adulation. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2d
Reagan-reads @britt_brooke thank you! @Hooked_on_books I liked the first book but I think this might be it for me. I just didn‘t think it was worth the effort. 2d

I enjoyed this thriller. The protagonist was sympathetic and relatable, in a low place after losing her job and her boyfriend in the same day. She gets a “too good to be true” apartment-sitting job in an elite building full of secretive residents. The suspense kept me racing through until a red herring near the end that made me so angry that I wanted to stop reading. Luckily, I powered through and the real conclusion was much more satisfying.

vivastory This is my favorite Sager. I don't think he's necessarily getting better with each title since I liked Final Girls more than Last Time I Lied, but he's definitely autobuy author. He announced his next book is coming out in July next year. 7d
tjwill @vivastory Good to know! This was my first, but I‘ll put Final Girls on the TBR list! 7d

Finished this one last night, read the whole thing in two days. I liked this better than The Last Time I Lied but not as much as Final Girls. I love Sager‘s books because they are so compulsively readable and I can just fly through them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Using this as part of the #scaryscavengerhunt for the book where a character dies

Such a creepy #audiobook! But it is very different than many of these "domestic thrillers", and I'm happy about it. The setting, an old building in nyc, is central to the plot. If you're looking for an atmospheric, creepy novel for this month, I'd recommend this one. ?? also, pictured are my mom's beautiful flowers ? from next door.

This was a great thriller! I saw most of the reveals coming, though there were a few surprises thrown in, but what really made it great was the pacing. The suspense built so well that I actually stayed up late to finish this because I read it while home alone at night, and was scared to go to sleep before I got to the resolution. This would fit team slaughter‘s themes better, but I‘m glad it made it on my Oct reading list! #scarathlon #teamstoker

xxjenadanxx I can't wait to read this one. Hopefully my library hold comes through this month. 2w

This was an entertaining read! At first you don't know if the apartment is haunted or not. There's so many details and history on the apartment that ot feels like one of the main characters. I definitely recommend this.

This story toes the line between creepy and scary. With the feel of a Hitchcockian gothic thriller, this sinisterly atmospheric story will have your heart racing.
Jules Larsen finds herself single, unemployed and without a home. Down on luck she takes a job as an apartment sitter at the exclusive Bartholomew Building in Manhattan‘s upper east side. Paid to live in a swanky apartment it‘s the opportunity of lifetime or is it too good to be true?

MrBook Great review! 3w

Jules is down and out after her breakup, but life seems to take a turn for the better when she gets a dream job being an apartment sitter. What happens next will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. Riley Sager does it again. I loved this book. The action and suspense had me reading late into the night. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you NetGalley for the early review copy.

Full disclosure: I am not the right audience for this kind of book, so I have an #unpopularopinion. The best thing about this book was the setting, which was almost like a character, itself. I felt the book was too plot driven and not character driven enough for my taste. The writing didn't stand out for me--very much a typical thriller read, and I am not a fan. I thought I'd give it a try, but it was more #mehthanyeah ⭐⭐⭐/5

⭐⭐⭐⭐ for this psychological thriller. Set in New York City in a building which sounds pretty cool (gargoyles!) And a sweet apartment-sitting situation, it seems. I definitely didn't see the twist coming...

Jules Larsen wakes up on a gurney. All she knows for certain is she was hit by a car crossing the street in front of her home, The Bartholomew Apartments
Jules had taken a job there, as an apartment sitter.
But there are rules, she must follow.....will she?

The plot is so engaging, the characters well developed.The gothic- tinged horror and unexpected twists, are fantastic, but the ending will truly surprise you.

Caroline2 Sounds good...stacked! 👍 1mo

When Ingrid, a new friend of Jules, suddenly and suspiciously goes missing, Jules can‘t help but to take action to find her. This isn‘t Jules‘s first rodeo when it comes to a loved one gone missing and it soon uncovers a long and dark history at the famously unforthcoming Bartholomew Building.
Ooooohh..... this was a good one! Couldn‘t put it down.

This was my first Riley Sager novel. I don't like scary or gorey, so I was glad this wasn't that. Even though it has spooky elements, it's more if a mystery than supernatural or horror.

PerksOfBeingABookworm I haven‘t read his first, Final Girls, because the description sounds way to gory. But I really enjoyed his second book. I liked it a little better than this one. Last Time I Lied isn‘t gory. (edited) 1mo

I am definitely a Riley Sager fan and the latest did not disappoint. This book wasn‘t particularly scary nor did it build up a strong suspenseful atmosphere, but it still held my interest and I was definitely curious about where the story was going. It had an urban legends type of vibe for me, which I thought was fun and a nice change of pace. The backstory was dark and helped drive character motivation. Not a gripping read, but an interesting one

Recently unemployed & newly single, Jules Larsen answers a mysterious ad as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew. There are plenty of peculiar rules & mysterious residents, but #moneystootighttomention for Jules. I've read every Sager book & this is easily the best one. One of my favorite thrillers of the year.
