Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay is a thrilling edge of your seat contemporary suspense that will have your heart racing. It is set in New York City where the clock is ticking down as the residents are thrown into panic and turmoil.
The novel is concerned with politics and agendas – the problem with agendas is that people suffer.
The novel is about fathers – their influence for good or bad.
As the murder count rises, the reader tries to piece together the action and predict the guilty one. Once again I failed but fell for the red herrings along the way.
Love motivates action – for good or evil, as people want to equal the score.
We live in the present but beware of the past rising up to haunt us.
Family is important. We all want to know our roots.
Linwood Barclay has created an eclectic mix of characters in this fast paced thriller in the city that never sleeps. I instinctively warmed to some but not others. I could not spot the perpetrator, see if you can. One thing is certain – I will not be in a hurry to take any elevator any time soon!
Elevator Pitch was my first book by Linwood Barclay but it will not be my last. It was marvellous. I shall be hunting out more by him. I think Elevator Pitch would make a marvellous movie.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
