Thank you, but I’ll take the stairs. Fast read, a bit of a not-quite-red herring, and plenty of hints throughout. I enjoyed it.

I’ve read a number of Linwood Barclay’s novels and this one was good but not one of his best. Not sure I’ll get on an elevator anytime soon. The story started out a little on the slow side but then the pace picked up with a real twist ending.

my first book by this author. to me it had a vibe that reminded me of airport by arthur hailey, which i really enjoyed back in the day. NOT recommended for people with elevator phobia, luckily mine is escalators.

This was a decent thriller over all, but I didn't think it was one of Linwood Barclay's best books. I have read them all, and this was seemed a bit slower paced and had fewer twists and turns. The sabotaged elevator scenario was new and it was interesting to imagine the effect that would have on a city like New York. It was an entertaining read over all, but not as gripping as most of his others. I also found the eventual reveal of the main villain's justification for the deaths of some innocent bystanders to be quite flimsy. I thought this one was good, but not great.

It is such a nice surprise to find a book by a favourite author on the trade paperback shelf just inside the door at the library, while all catalogued copies are out and the hold list is long. This was a satisfying read of a couple of days. It is fun to get absorbed into a suspense novel, and interesting to speculate how a city like New York would fare if the elevators were out of service.

Surprisingly pretty good except for the long, drawn out, unnecessary dialog. Found myself skipping over pages.
