My ranking: A-

Speak about a wild journey!!! The Paris Apartment was one heck of an fascinating and twisty learn. Surprises have been sprinkled all through the e book — one thing I respect since so many thrillers save all of the twists and suprises for the top — and I completely devoured this one! (Price noting this e book appears to be polarizing however I’m within the camp of people that actually loved it.) I discovered myself noticing the writer’s creativity on this story time and again and completely suggest it to anybody who loves suspenseful thrillers. It was crammed with stress and questionable characters and was some of the partaking books I’ve learn shortly.

The e book begins when Jess arrives in Paris for the primary time to go to her brother Ben. She arrives at his condo and shortly notices one thing is off. He’s not there and never answering his calls. His neighbors bristle at her questions and the tires his Vespa seem like slashed. And, additionally, his condo is superb. How may he potential afford such a high-end place on a struggling journalist’s wage?

As Jess begins trying to find Ben increasingly more questions start to floor, questions that make her severely involved for her brother’s security… and in addition her personal. Who’re Ben’s neighbors? Why does she get the sensation they know extra about her brother than they’re prepared to share? Who can she belief? And can she ever see her brother once more?
