The Girl Before
Desperate to find a new place to
live, Emma stumbles across One
Folgate Street. It is an architectural
masterpiece: a minimalist design
of pale stone, plate glass, and
soaring ceilings. But the enigmatic
architect who designed the house
insists that she abide by a long
list of exacting rules. The space is
intended to transform its occupant
– and it does... Since a personal
tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start,
and One Folgate Street seems like
the rental opportunity of a lifetime.
After moving in, she learns of the
mysterious death of Emma, the
previous tenant – and begins to
wonder if her own story will be a
rerun of that of the girl before. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, her present and Emma's past become inexorably entwined...
