It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
Today I'm featuring an upcoming read, The Heights by Louise Candlish. The excerpt shared is from a trade paperback borrowed from the librry.
First Chapter: Killing Time
Opening lines are hard to write, says Felix Penney, and he of all people should know. The author of three writing manuals and nine crime novels, he is one of the most high-profile creative writing tutors in the UK, with a prestigious class at King's College London.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
The opening lines are interesting, but what really makes we want to read this book is the Goodreads description:
"The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among warehouses in London. Its roof terrace is 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 may be older now, but it’s definitely him.But that can’t be because he’s been dead for over two years. You know this for a fact.
Because you’re the one who killed him."
