Sara Crimson isn't happy about moving into a shady apartment complex with a man she barely knows. But after discovering she's pregnant with her first child, she decides to try to make a relationship work with the baby daddy Max, an up-and-coming talent agent.

An aspiring novelist, Sara at first is elated with the additional free time she has to focus on her writing. But as the days turn to weeks, she starts to suspect that something peculiar is happening in the Executive Townhouses of North Hollywood, California. People start disappearing, strange noises echo down the corridor, and an old, creepy tenant finds his entertainment value in staring at her from afar.

But what Sara doesn't know is that the hidden horrors that lie inside the complex are far worse than anything her overactive imagination could have ever conceived...

My thoughts:

If you didn't know already, I'm a huge fan of horror. I go crazy for new horror stories.

This book was certainly full of what I love most about horror. It was so chocked full of suspense it was one I couldn't put down at times. I was entirely engrossed it was so gripping.

It was surprising too. The villain wasn't clear until actually revealed which kept me guessing which I always like in a story.

Another thing I always like in a story - flawed protagonists! Sara has her faults and she's not exactly likeable at the start but that soon changes throughout the novel.

I also appreciate authors of horror novels that aren't afraid of throwing as much gore at readers as possible. This is definitely not a read to finish whilst eating or just before sleeping!

Overall I recommend this book to fans of the horror genre. It was a great read.
