In this powerful psychological suspense debut, when a woman’s life is shattered, she is faced with a devastating question: What if everything she thought was normal and good and true . . . wasn’t?



  • "The Girl Before" takes place in the contemporary and meticulously designed house known as 1 Folgate Street, which becomes the dwelling place for a group of deeply troubled individuals. In order to secure a reduced rent, tenants are required to adhere to strict rules and living arrangements established by the renowned architect who constructed the unique residence. Only he has the authority to decide who can lease the property. Tony Strong, writing under the pseudonym J.P. Delaney, had the potential to explore an intriguing and thrilling theme. However, the novel took an alternate route by delving into countless sub-themes that explored the unsettling thoughts and dysfunctional lives of its female tenants. While this approach could have been successful, I found the portrayal of these women to be distorted, unrelatable, and perpetuating harmful stereotypes. In fact, I was so concerned about the author's perspective that I even took to the internet to confirm my suspicions, which were unfortunately confirmed by the revelation that the author is male. If you enjoy books like "Fifty Shades of No Self-Respect" and have an interest in exploring the minds of deeply damaged characters, particularly women, then this might be a suitable read for you. However, it is important to note that the author does not possess the same level of skill as Gillian Flynn.
