Être payée pour habiter un appartement sublime dans la résidence Bartholomew, l'une des plus luxueuses de Manhattan, juste le garder et l'entretenir. Pour Jules Larson, qui vient de perdre à la fois son emploi et son petit ami, quelle aubaine ! Mais attention, précise son employeur : « Aucun visiteur, ne jamais quitter les lieux la nuit et surtout ne pas déranger les voisins. » Jules accepte ces règles sans problème et s'installe.
Mais peu de temps après son arrivée, elle fait la connaissance d'une autre « gardienne » comme elle, Ingrid. Et celle-ci lui révèle que le Bartholomew a une bien sombre histoire et qu'elle commence à avoir vraiment peur. Le lendemain, Ingrid disparaît.
Jules décide alors d'enquêter discrètement... au risque d'être à son tour victime de cet immeuble maudit.
Les portes les mieux fermées n'empêchent pas les monstres d'entrer s'ils sont déjà à l'intérieur.
Trois jeunes filles. Trois tragédies. Un insoupçonnable secret...
De cette nuit à Pine Cottage, Quincy ne se souvient de rien. Juste qu'elle a miraculeusement été sauvée par un policier en patrouille et qu'elle est la seule survivante. Pour la presse, Quincy appartient au groupe de la « Dernière Fille », réunissant celles qui ont échappé à un massacre. Avant elle, il y a eu Lisa qui a survécu à une fusillade au siège de sa sororité étudiante ou encore Samantha, rescapée d'une tuerie dans le motel où elle travaillait pour payer ses études. Des histoires cauchemardesques que chacune tente d'effacer. Jusqu'à ce que Quincy apprenne le suicide de Lisa, que Samantha ne surgisse dans sa vie et que tout bascule à nouveau...
Have you ever played two truths and a lie?
It was Emma's first summer away from home. She made friends. She played games. And she learned how to lie.
Then three of her new friends went into the woods and never returned. . .
Now, years later, Emma has been asked to go back to the newly re-opened Camp Nightingale. She thinks she's laying old ghosts to rest but really she's returning to the scene of a crime.
Because Emma's innocence might be the biggest lie of all. . .
They've offered you a luxury apartment, rent free. THE CATCH: you may not live long enough to enjoy it...
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents.
These are the only rules for Jules Larson's new job as apartment sitter for an elusive resident of the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile private buildings and home to the rich and famous.
Recently heartbroken and practically homeless, Jules readily accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
Out of place among the extremely wealthy, Jules finds herself pulled toward other apartment sitter Ingrid. But Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her. Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story - but the next day, her new friend has vanished.
And then Jules discovers that Ingrid is not the first temporary resident to go missing...
Welcome to the Bartholomew...You may never leave.

THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL THRILLER WRITERS AWARD FOR BEST HARDCOVER NOVEL The first great thriller of 2017 is here: Final Girls , by Riley Sager. If you liked Gone Girl , youll like this.--Stephen King Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror moviescale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to--a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls: Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout's knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them and, with that, one another. Despite the media's attempts, they never meet. Now, Quincy is doing well--maybe even great, thanks to her Xanax prescription. She has a caring almost-fiancé, Jeff; a popular baking blog; a beautiful apartment; and a therapeutic presence in Coop, the police officer who saved her life all those years ago. Her memory wont even allow her to recall the events of that night; the past is in the past. That is until Lisa, the first Final Girl, is found dead in her bathtub, wrists slit; and Sam, the second Final Girl, appears on Quincy's doorstep. Blowing through Quincy's life like a whirlwind, Sam seems intent on making Quincy relive the past, with increasingly dire consequences, all of which makes Quincy question why Sam is really seeking her out. And when new details about Lisa's death come to light, Quincy's life becomes a race against time as she tries to unravel Sam's truths from her lies, evade the police and hungry reporters, and, most crucially, remember what really happened at Pine Cottage, before what was started ten years ago is finished.
