Elevator Pitch – “Mega Drop” Fiction: 11:00 am – 11:45 am on September 24th, 2020
With his signature tantalizing plot and gut-churning tension, Linwood Barclay offers Elevator Pitch, a best-selling novel that provides the thrill of a big drop fairground ride. A Manhattan office tower elevator falls from the top floor to the bottom, killing all its occupants. Next thing you know, another falls the next day, and then another. Why? Two seasoned NYC detectives and a straight-shooting journalist race against time to stop the next catastrophe. Join Linwood and podcaster Ben Charland as they talk about where the best ideas come from, what makes a great thriller, and why we should read them.
