The Heights

The new edge-of-your-seat thriller from the #1 bestselling author of The Other Passenger


From the bestselling author of Our House, winner of the Crime & Thriller Book of the Year Award comes a nail-biting story of tragedy and revenge. 

He thinks he’s safe up there. 
But he’ll never be safe from you. 
The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among the warehouses of Shad Thames, its roof terrace so discreet you wouldn’t know it existed if you weren't standing at the window of the flat directly opposite. But you are. And that’s when you see a man up there – a man you’d recognize anywhere. He’s older now and his appearance has subtly changed, but it’s definitely him. 

Which makes no sense at all since you know he has been dead for over two years.  

You know this for a fact.  

Because you’re the one who killed him.

'It twists and it turns and it twists again. The Heights by Louise Candlish is the very definition of a “just one more chapter” novel. I devoured it. And it’s full of such great writing about the ferocity of maternal love' 

– Hannah Beckerman, author of If Only I Could Tell You

‘Impossible to resist, impossible to predict, impossible to put down… this is an author at the top of her game’ 

– Erin Kelly, author of Watch Her Fall

'There’s nothing quite so chilling as the roar of mother tiger love. Louise Candlish had my heart in my throat. Dizzily dark. Dangerous. Deadly'

– Jane Corry, author of The Lies We Tell
