An Extract from The Heights by Louise Candlish

I’m so excited to have Louise Candlish’s latest book The Heights on my TBR because I love Louise’s writing. Sadly I couldn’t fit in reading The Heights in time for today’s blog tour stop but I am thrilled to be able to share an extract from the book with you.

My enormous thanks to Jess Barratt at Simon and Schuster for inviting me to participate in this blog tour and for sending me a copy of The Heights which I intend to review just as soon as I can.

Whilst I have still to read my signed copy of Those People, you’ll find my review of Louise’s Our House here and of The Other Passenger here.

The Heights was published by Simon and Schuster on 5th August and is available for purchase through these links.

The Heights

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…’

See what I mean?
