Over 1 Million Copies Sold!

Don’t miss the New York Times and USA Today bestseller and addictive psychological thriller with a jaw-dropping twist that’s burning up Instagram and TikTok–Freida McFadden’s The Housemaid is perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, Lisa Jewell, and Verity.

Every day, I meticulously clean the Winchesters’ beautiful house, pick up their daughter from school, and cook a delicious meal for the family before retreating to my tiny room in the attic.

Nina, the wife, makes messes just to watch me clean, tells strange lies about her daughter, and her husband Andrew seems more broken with each passing day. Despite his pain, I can’t help but imagine what it would be like to live Nina‘s luxurious life.

One day, curiosity gets the better of me, and I try on one of Nina‘s pristine white dresses. She soon finds out, and I realize that my attic bedroom door locks only from the outside, trapping me.

It’s then that I reassure myself: the Winchesters don’t know who I really am.
