A Sunday Times Best Paperback of 2020.
It all begins on a Monday, when four people board an elevator in a Manhattan office tower. Each presses a button for their floor, but the elevator proceeds, nonstop, to the top. Once there, it stops for a few seconds, and then plummets.
Right to the bottom of the shaft.
It appears to be a horrific, random tragedy. But then, on Tuesday, it happens again, in a different Manhattan skyscraper. And when Wednesday brings yet another high-rise catastrophe, one of the most vertical cities in the world - and the nation’s capital of media, finance and entertainment - is plunged into chaos.
Clearly, this is anything but random. This is a cold, calculated bid to terrorise the city. And it’s working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men and women working in offices across the city refuse to leave their homes. Commerce has slowed to a trickle. Emergency calls to the top floors of apartment buildings go unanswered.
Who is behind this? What do these deadly acts of sabotage have to do with the fingerless body found on the High Line? Two seasoned New York detectives and a straight-shooting journalist must race against time to find the answers....
Pulsating with tension, Elevator Pitch is a riveting tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible...and will chill listeners to the bone.
"One of the world's finest thriller writers on the top of his game." (Peter James)
Praise for Elevator Pitch: "This novel moves as fast as a falling elevator and hits with just as much force. Linwood Barclay is a stone cold pro and Elevator Pitch is a shameless good time."(Joe Hill, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Fireman and Strange Weather)
Praise for Linwood Barclay: "A suspense master." (Stephen King)
Ce que les auditeurs disent de Elevator Pitch
I loved this book. it was exceptionally well written and the narration was brilliant..I wanted to hurry through it to find the conclusion but at the same time didn't want it to end.
