Synopsis

From S. L. Grey comes this suspenseful psychological thriller.

Mark and Steph are struggling to move on with their lives after armed robbers broke into their home and brutalized them. Shaken, they decide to get away and leave their troubles behind. A house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online, the Petits, seems to provide the perfect escape. But upon arriving for a week's luxurious break, they find themselves in a festering, run-down apartment. And when Steph attempts to contact the Petits, she gets no answer.

Mark and Steph try to make the most of the trip, but they are unable to relax. After a series of increasingly unsettling events, they decide to return home. Yet when they arrive, neither of them can shake the feeling that there's now something sinister about their own house. As time passes, Mark is terrorized by a series of unsettling visions. But is it all in his imagination or is there a far more worrying explanation . . . ?

Gripping, creepy as hell, and the dread will linger for days afterwards

Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls and Broken Monsters

The Apartment is a perfectly crafted, deeply unsettling thriller: a portrait of a marriage unraveling, of the haunting and the haunted, and the idea that grief might be a door that can let other horrific things in. This book had me turning on all the lights, checking under the bed and in the closet, and savoring every terrifying page

Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Sister

Dark and deeply disturbing. Trust me, this tense and frightening piece of horror is not for kids, or for the faint-of-heart. I'm still shuddering

R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street
