    2.5 STARS rounded to 3I m keeping this brief, because it s obvious from my rating that this one just wasn t for me, and I think it s because I was expecting something a bit fast paced with elevator scenes I will say that I appreciate so much that the author put a lot of time and effort into proper research of local NYC haunts that my friends who live in the city said meant so much to them I ll always be a huge fan of Barclay s, and not every book by an author will appeal to ever

    I might be opting for the stairs for awhile Someone is messing with the elevators in NYC, which gave me a sudden sense of horror I know I m going to think about this book the next time I step into one.There are quite a few characters in this book and it is longer than most, but I was wrapped up in the mysteries and it was certainly a page turner Turns out that Barclay is the master of chapter cliff hangers too Let the mayhem begin There are two police partners investigating the crimes and they

    It s one thing to get stuck in an elevator, it s another thing to, well, have it plummet picking up speed going faster and faster until.Manhattan, a city of skyscrapers, so many elevators, so many people, so many ways for things to go wrong It all begins when four people are in an elevator that plummets to the bottom of the shaft It s not going to be the only one There will be others What first looks like a tragedy, soon begins to look like an act of terror Someone is behind all these elevator mishaps

    Confession time Elevator Pitch was my first Linwood Barclay book I know, I know I am a shocker Once I started this book I did not want to put it down, it was all I could think about I am absolutely a fan of this writer now and I will be looking for books by him This book completely sucked me and it scared me Getting into an elevator was something that I started to dread, and honestly contemplated taking the stairs What happens in this book is scary because it could happen You will never look at an elevator the same way a

    This was an interesting one and, having read it, I may never look at an elevator in the same way again Especially one in a high rise building.There were some very inventive details and a few very gory deaths The author used his imagination fully to create original and amazing ways to die in an elevator incident I was completely fooled by the ending There was one huge red herring which made me think I was very clever until I was not Very well done and definitely worth a read.
