The Girl Before by JP Delaney, 441 Pages, Paperback, £6.99
JP Delaney’s The Girl Before is a modern thriller set in a pristine house with a hefty price for its tenants. Each tenant must follow a certain amount of rules to maintain living in such a prestigous place. However if you had heard of a mysterious death in the house, would it still seem as desirable?
Delaney’s novel follows the journey of two tenants at separate times. Will both of their journeys end the same way like their repetitive beginning or differ through their thoughts, opinions and beliefs.
Delaney has used her craft in this novel to create strong characters to withhold the house and the journey. Flaws have carefully been considered in each and every character, including those of minor roles.
The reader becomes at one with the house as the reader is made to feel as if they are looking into the situations and scenarios, similarly as if you were playing Cluedo.
The Girl Before is a novel that you have to make your own mind on but if you are intrigued by this review then perhaps this book is for you…
