Event description

Description

We're thrilled to announce that we're hosting bestselling author Linwood Barclay in store on Wednesday 11th September at 6.30pm to celebrate his suspenseful new novel Elevator Pitch.

Linwood is the author of multiple internationally bestselling thrillers including No Time for Goodbye, A Noise Downstairs, Trust Your Eyes and the Promise Falls series. He has been heralded as a master of suspense, his books have been translated into more than two dozen language and have sold millions of copies, and he counts Stephen King among his fans.

Linwood will be in conversation with Ian Rankin, author of multiple bestselling novels including the Rebus series.

Tickets are £3, which is redeemable against a copy of the book. There will be an opportunity to have books signed at this event.


Elevator Pitch:
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, non-stop, 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 terrorize the city. And it's working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men and women working in offices across the city refuse 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 readers to the bone. #TakeTheStairs


Praise for Elevator Pitch:
“Read Elevator Pitch as soon as possible. It’s one hell of a suspense novel.” ―Stephen King

“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
