A STUNNING REISSUE OF THE GLOBAL BESTSELLER - OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE - NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES

Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection . . . but can you pay the price?

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules.

After moving in, she makes a shocking discovery about the previous tenant, Emma, and Jane starts to wonder if her own story will be a rerun of the girl before.
