About this event

Linwood Barclay, master of suspense, will be in Waterstones Nottingham on 10th September to chat to us about his latest thrill-ride, 'Elevator Pitch'.

Aside from the talk, the evening will include a Q&A from the audience and a book signing.

More info on 'Elevator Pitch':

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 world - and the nation's capital of media, finance, and entertainment - is plunged into chaos.

Clearly, this is anything but random. This is a cold, calculated bid to terrorize the city. And it's working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men and 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? 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...

Pulsating with tension, 'Elevator Pitch' is a riveting tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible... and will chill readers to the bone.

Tickets are £5 general admission / £4 Waterstones Plus cardholders (please speak to a member of staff about signing up, or do so via our app).

Waterstones Nottingham is wheelchair accessible. Please do get in touch in advance if you have any specific requirements.
