Welcome, welcome to my stop on this devastatingly powerful and gripping brand new book by the much loved Louise Candelish- The Heights ( out 5th August 2021).
FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD, COMES A NAIL-BITING STORY OF REVENGE, OBSESSION AND VERTIGO.
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.
‘Kieran Watts has been dead for over two years when I see him standing on the roof of a building in Shad Thames…’
My thoughts on this book...
Wow...what a suspenseful and reverting read. A couple of years ago I read Louise's book Our House and I thoroughly enjoyed it even thought I am not a person who reads psychological thrillers on regular basis. So when I got the chance to join a blog tour for The Heights I jumped at it as I was really curious to sample another of Louise books.
And I certainly wasn't disappointed. The Heights is a domestic thriller that weaves flawed everyday family dramas with a dark side of what happens when teenagers mix with the wrong crowed.
The story is mainly told from Ellen's (the mother) point of view and as a mother myself I could understand why she got to the pointed of obsession after a terrible accident involving her son and his friend.
The Heights is a sleek page turner with a full bodied characters and a nicely paced story-line that will make you hold your breath ( on some pages, especially at the end!) as you race through to the finishing line.
I really enjoyed reading The Heights and if you are after a tensely complex read with raw emotions, family drama and integrity ( what would I do as a mother? Would I ever go there?) then don't forget to visit your local bookshop and grab yourself a copy.
