The Paris Apartment Lucy Foley 4*#Review @LucyFoleyTweets @HarperFiction #HarperCollinsUK #TheParisApartment #BookReview #MurderMystery #mystery #PsychologicalSuspense #Suspense #Paris #Family #noircrime

Welcome to No.12 rue des Amants

A beautiful old apartment block, far from the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower and the bustling banks of the Seine.

Where nothing goes unseen, and everyone has a story to unlock.

The watchful concierge
The scorned lover
The prying journalist
The naïve student
The unwanted guest

There was a murder here last night.
A mystery lies behind the door of apartment three.

Who holds the key?

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley.

My Thoughts…

The Paris Apartment is a building with a timeless faded glory, but it also has secrets that Jess has to unravel to find her brother Ben. Atmospheric and intense, this is a compelling mystery with a cast of unlikeable characters and an unreliable protagonist. This story has a noir flavour, and the plot is twisty. It keeps the reader engaged and guessing.

I like the setting, which is powerful and an essential part of the mystery. The characterisation is intricate, and the multi viewpoints with before and after timelines are compelling. The plot is multi-layered and concludes in a dramatic yet believable way.
