Waterstones Newton Mearns is proud to present an evening with best-selling crime author Linwood Barclay talking about his newest book ELEVATOR PITCH.
Born in the United States before moving to Canada age four, in his later years Linwood Barclay became a prolific contributor to the Toronto Star where he gained a name for himself as one of the papers most beloved columnists due to his sparkling wit and insight. He moved on from this role in 2008 to focus on his novels after achieving international acclaim with No Time for Goodbyein 2007. Ever since Barclay has continued this success with hits such as Never Saw it Coming and Parting Shot wowing readers with his wonderfully unique style of suspense which draws on our everyday anxieties.
His new novel Elevator Pitch sees Barclay back at his very best in this thrilling new blockbuster.
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.
