About The Girl Before by JP Delaney

‘Dazzling . . . a pitch-perfect psychological thriller’ – Lee Child.

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules. After moving in, she discovers that a previous tenant, Emma, met a mysterious death there – and starts to wonder if her own story will be a re-run of the girl before. As twist after twist catches the reader off guard, Emma’s past and Jane’s present become inexorably entwined in this tense, page-turning portrayal of psychological obsession.

JP Delaney is the pseudonym of an author who has previously written award-winning fiction under other names.

    I didnt really understand the ending. Did Jane keep Toby? I assume she did although the discussion with Edward led you to believe that she agreed with him it was best to give him up. A tad confusing.
