Book Club - Elevator Pitch

Enjoy a lively discussion of each month's book selection. 

This month: Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay
The #1 bestselling Linwood Barclay returns with an edge-of-your-seat thriller that does for elevators what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for the beach-a heart-pounding tale of terror and menace that will make you think twice the next time you hit Up.
It all begins on a Monday, when four people board an elevator in a Manhattan of?ce tower. Each presses a button for their ?oor, but the elevator proceeds, nonstop, to the top. Once there it pauses for a few seconds, but the doors don't open. Instead, the elevator begins to descend ?oor-by-?oor. Then it plummets.
Right to the bottom of the shaft.
It appears to be a random accident. . . . But on Tuesday, it happens again, in a different Manhattan skyscraper. And then Wednesday brings yet another tragic high-rise catastrophe. In only three days, one of the most vertical cities in the world-and the nation's capital of media, ?nance 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 succeeding. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men and women working in of?ces across the city refuse to leave their homes. Commerce has slowed to a trickle. Emergency calls to the top ?oors of apartment towers go unanswered.
Who is behind this? Why are they doing it? Are these deadly acts of sabotage somehow connected to a ?ngerless body found on the High Line? Two seasoned New York detectives and a straight-shooting journalist race against time to uncover the truth before the city's newest, and tallest, residential tower has its ribbon-cutting on Friday night.
With each diabolical twist, Linwood Barclay ratchets up the tension, building to a shattering finale. Elevator Pitch is a riveting tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible . . . and will chill you to the bone.
