Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings based on Waiting on Wednesday that was created and run by Breaking the Spine where each Wednesday you get to showcase a book that you are really looking forward to and that has yet to be released.
This week I’ve chosen:
Thirteen Storeys by Jonathan Sims.
A dinner party is held in the penthouse of a multimillion-pound development. All the guests are strangers – even to their host, the billionaire owner of the building
None of them know why they were selected to receive his invitation. Whether privileged or deprived, they share only one thing in common – they’ve all experienced a shocking disturbance within the building’s walls.
By the end of the night, their host is dead, and none of the guests will say what happened. His death has remained one of the biggest unsolved mysteries – until now.
But are you ready for their stories?
Thirteen Storeys by Jonathan Sims is scheduled for release by Gollancz on November 26th, 2020. I like the cover, it is simple yet evocative with the blood splatter which I’m sure offers a hint at the darkness within and the name of the book both standing out in stark contrast to the white elevator keypad background. The blurb is mysterious and it sounds like an atmospheric and creepy read, perfect for this time of year.
