The Heights

Paperback edition released 05/08/2021

by Louise Candlish

Thriller and Suspense Crime and Mystery

The Heights Synopsis

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD, COMES A NAIL-BITING STORY OF TRAGEDY AND REVENGE 'Impossible to resist, impossible to predict, impossible to put down... this is an author at the top of her game' Erin Kelly, author of Watch Her Fall 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. 'There's nothing quite so chilling as the roar of mother tiger love. Louise Candlish had my heart in my throat. Dizzily dark. Dangerous. Deadly' Jane Corry, author of The Lies We Tell 'No one creates middle-class characters we love to hate quite like Louise Candlish. I'd expected her to do this, and to provide a great sense of place, and twists that would have been rifling through the book to see how they'd been done. What I wasn't expecting was that this thriller of obsessive revenge and intense parental grief would tug at my heartstrings. Smart, addictive, twisting, surprising. Highly recommended' Sarah Vaughan, author of Little Disasters 'It twists and it turns and it twists again. The Heights by Louise Candlish is the very definition of a just one more chapter novel. I devoured it. And it's full of such great writing about the ferocity of maternal love' Hannah Beckerman, author of If Only I Could Tell You Praise for Louise Candlish: 'Louise Candlish is the queen of the sucker-punch twist' Ruth Ware 'Louise is the mistress of the Oh my God, this could be me nightmare' Fiona Barton 'The queen of the urban thriller returns' Red 'Louise Candlish just gets better and better' Lisa Jewell 'Stylish, suspenseful and absorbing' Best 'Psychological suspense at its most elegant and sinister' AJ Finn 'You won't want to put down this roller coaster read!' Closer 'A gripping read with a brilliant first-person narrative. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It's so good!' BA Paris 'Not only is Candlish a terrific storyteller, she has the gift of making you care about unlikable characters' Guardian 'A must read!' Lucy Foley 'Gripping from start to finish' Bella 'I couldn't put it down!' Shari Lapena 'The layers of plot astound' Sunday Times Crime Club 'An instant classic' Mark Edwards 'A chillingly addictive and glamorous thriller' Sunday Post
