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 beachâ€”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
worldâ€”and the nationâ€™s capital of media, finance, and
entertainmentâ€”is plunged into chaos.
Clearly, this is anything but random. This is a cold,
calculated bid to terrorize the city. And itâ€™s working.
Fearing for their lives, thousands of men in 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? 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 cityâ€™s
newest, and tallest, residential tower has its Friday
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 readers to the bone.
