I’ve read Linwood Barclay before and he’s okay – a bit fanciful perhaps but sometimes humorous. In this one the elevators in the skyscrapers of New York City seem to run amok crashing unexpectedly with people on board. The mayor and his office is completely upended by this as well as a reporter and a couple detectives. The only possible answer might be terrorism.
Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay

rating – B / crime
We also visit some characters who seem to be in on the scheme. There were times it felt like slapstick and other times it was tense as a straight thriller. Then it got complicated. I was kind of bored at first but it picked up and I was riveted for awhile. Then it turned a bit silly (imo) but overall I’m glad I read it.
Yikes, this would give me nightmares to read! If a lift got stuck while I was in it, I would be the one screaming hysterically…
