|Summary, etc.:|| "No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen's new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind. As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When 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... until the next day, when Ingrid disappears. Searching for the truth about Ingrid's disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew's sordid past and into the secrets kept within its walls. What she discovers pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building's hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent." -- Provided by publisher.

The building manager's strange rules should have tipped Jules off that her new apartment-sitting gig was too good to be true: no visitors, no nights away from the apartment, and no speaking to the regular tenants unless spoken to. But, for the incredible pay and three months in NYC's legendary Bartholomew Building, Jules would agree to almost anything. She's between both jobs and apartments, so she isn't overcome with options, but doubt creeps in after she meets Ingrid, another Bartholomew apartment sitter, who confesses that the building scares her. That night, Jules hears a scream coming from Ingrid's apartment and is told the next morning that Ingrid secretly moved out in the night. Jules isn't buying it and searches for Ingrid, digging into the building's historic connection to a murderous cult. Through disoriented future interludes, Jules reveals that she's escaped the Bartholomew. But, escaped from what? Sager's third reinterpretation of iconic horror themes (following The Last Time I Lied, 2018) is an utterly riveting thriller that melds Rosemary's Baby with Sager's masterful storytelling.
