Not sure what mood you are in for! A Noise Downstairs has a few elements to it making this one a great one if you are not sure what you are in the mood for.
Linwood Barclay is one of my favorite authors and his books, and I have some history together. I loved listening to his books and his stories kept me entertained on some long runs. Lately, I have been missing out on some of his newer books and I am happy to say I am glad I didn’t miss out on this one.
A Noise Downstairs is a fun, entertaining, twisty and easy read with a unique creepy tormentor here with the Underwood typewriter that sets quite the eerie atmosphere to the story. I was hooked right from the start, and I was a little afraid of the noise downstairs, and I might not be just talking about the book. I pulled the covers over my head and turned the pages as fast as I could as the tension started to rise with every reveal. Things began to feel a little predictable but weren’t. I thought I had a few things figured out, but those red herring are layered well here in this story.
This is one is all about the entertainment value here and not entirely that plausible. It’s a great one to get lost in the eerie atmosphere here by a noise downstairs.
