He thinks he’s safe up there. But he’ll never be safe from you.
The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among the warehouses of Tower Bridge, its roof terrace so discreet you wouldn’t know it existed if you weren’t standing at the window of the flat directly opposite. But you are. And that’s when you see a man up there – a man you’d recognize anywhere. He’s older now and his appearance has subtly changed, but it’s definitely him.
Which makes no sense at all since you know he has been dead for over two years. You know this for a fact.
Because you’re the one who killed him. It’s time to confess what we did up there.
The Heights is available in ebook and hardback now. You can purchase your copy using the links below.
I’m a huge fan of this author so you can imagine my excitement when I was invited onto the blog tour for her latest book, The Heights. Once again the author has written an unsettling but emotional psychological thriller that was a fantastic read.
The story is told firstly from Ellen’s point of view and then Vic’s, interspersed with newspaper articles which was very intriguing. I wasn’t particularly fond of Ellen and as I found her narration to be quite disturbing at times and I wasn’t completely sure I could trust her. She just seemed completely blinded by her hatred and want for revenge that she completely overlooks everything else. I did feel a bit sorry for her as it must have been awful to lose a kid like that but this was quickly washed away when I got to know her better.
I thought the storyline was very clever and I enjoyed following it throughout the book. There seemed to be many layers to the plot and it was fun to try and piece everything together. I thought it was a bit of a slow burn to start with as the reader is introduced to the characters and the story but the tension gradually increases as the story goes on until it becomes hard to put down. There are lots of twists that kept me guessing and I liked how the different points of views helped answer some of the questions I had. I did guess the ending but that didn’t stop me enjoying the book as I had to keep reading to check I was right.
Huge thanks to Jess Barnett for my copy of this book and for inviting me onto the blog tour.
