Description

The New York Times bestselling author of A Noise Downstairs and No Time for Goodbye returns with an edge-of-your-seat thriller that does for elevators what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for the beachA??a heart-pounding tale in which a series of disasters paralyzes New York City with fear. 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 worldA??and the nationA??s capital of media, finance, and entertainmentA??is plunged into chaos. Clearly, this is anything but random. This is a cold, calculated bid to terrorize the city. And itA??s working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men in 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? Why are they doing it? 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 before the cityA??s newest, and tallest, residential tower has its Friday night ribbon-cutting. With each diabolical twist, Linwood Barclay ratchets up the suspense, building to a shattering finale. Pulsating with tension, Elevator Pitch is a riveting tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible . . . and will chill listenersto the bone. Bonus: Stay tuned at the end to hear a crowdsourced interview with the author.

Professional reviews

"This suspense, narrated superbly by Johnathan McClain, shows how the best audiobooks grab the listener at the outset and maintain their attention to the end. Linwood Barclay's story begins when four people board a New York office building elevator, which ascends to the top floor and then suddenly plummets. What seems to be a random accident repeats the next day and the next, creating a frenzy of fear that paralyzes the city, and intensifies with subsequent events. Detectives, assisted by a seasoned journalist, must work frenetically to find the mastermind. As the suspense builds, so do the plot twists. McClain's narration captures every moment with a deft change of pace, tone, or intensity. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
