The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley @RandomTTours

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?

Wow! Lucy Foley has done it again with this clever and uniquely plotted mystery that kept me guessing throughout! An apartment in Paris is the location for her latest twisty storyline and once again there is a cast of suspects who could all be as guilty as hell but guilty of what exactly? When Jess arrives at her brothers apartment she’s surprised that he isn’t there to greet her as he said he would be. And it’s not just the fact that Ben has disappeared that worries Jess-the neighbours all seem to have something to hide too…

The Paris Apartment is a gripping, twisty read where the beautiful old apartment block in Paris plays its part in the story as much as the secretive occupants inside it. How is Ben able to afford such a beautiful place to live? And why if the concierge appears to watch everyone coming and going does she have no idea where Ben has disappeared to? I was as much in the dark as Jess was as she fearlessly tried to find answers in a city that hides it’s depraved side behind the tourist spots we are all so familiar with. I loved Jess and the determined nature that kept her digging around even though she knew that danger stalked her every move. Towards the end the twists came thick and fast with a few gasp out loud moments as well!

Once again Lucy Foley completely grabbed my attention with her cleverly plotted mystery that kept me guessing throughout. A brilliant page turner that just kept getting better the more I read it. Highly recommended!
