5/5 stars

This was my first Riley Sager book and I can guarantee you that it won’t be my last. Do you love books that fall into the mystery/thriller-taking-place-in-a-possibly-haunted-but-definitely-elusive-and-creepy-old-NYC-apartment genre? Yeah, I didn’t know that genre was a thing either. BUT IT NEEDS TO BE.

I’ve never read a book that has so effectively cultivated a sense of place. The Bartholomew is just as much a character in this book as Jules, Ingrid, Nick, or Greta. The Bartholomew feels alive. It’s alluring and glamorous; it’s a living, breathing, beast that devours young, unattached women, never to be seen or heard from again.

You just know things are going to go south at any given minute, but like Jules, you’re drawn into the old-school, classic glamour of the Bartholomew and the gleam of its residents. It is un-put-downable and so. Much. Fun.

Sure, the story is compelling, but the real draw of LOCK EVERY DOOR is the brilliant atmosphere Sager creates.
