paris-apt

Lucy Foley, who lives in the UK but has Irish roots, has had huge hits with The Guest List and The Hunting Party, and now she’s back storming up the charts with The Paris Apartment. Described by Alex Michaelides as having ‘Atmosphere you can cut with a knife’, it’s a gripping murder mystery that transports you to the heart of Paris – here’s the blurb:

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.
