Today I’m reviewing one of my favourite genres and authors, a creepy psychological thriller set in the heart of London by K. L. Slater, The Apartment.
From the Blurb
Freya Miller needs a miracle. In the fallout of her husband’s betrayal, she’s about to lose her family home, and with it the security she craves for her five-year-old daughter, Skye.
Adrift and alone, she’s on the verge of despair until a chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes everything. He’s seeking a new tenant for a surprisingly affordable flat in a fashionable area of London.
Adder House sounds too good to be true, but Freya really can’t afford to decline the opportunity and she will soon discover that Adder House has dark secrets…
The Apartment is difficult to pin down to one genre. It has mainly thriller, suspense and psychological aspects as well as gothic, ghostly and historical touches, and a hint of romance. It’s a creepy and ultimately unsettling novel which picks up speed quickly merging into a fast paced thriller.
K. L. Slater creates an atmospheric tale with engaging and unique characters, set in Kensington with its busy commercial streets, spectacular museums, famous parks, palace and secluded, affluent condominiums. I’m familiar with this well-known area of London, so it was easy and exciting to imagine Ader House and the surrounding area.
I listened to The Apartment on Audible and a huge plus to the audiobook version was listening to the author and narrator discussing the novel.
Well done! A fabulous read for readers who enjoy spine-chilling, psychological thrillers!
K. L. Slater’s latest novels, Little Whispers is on my kindle, waiting to be read (such a long list, but I’ll get there, eventually!)
