Summary

Apartment 16 is another gripping novel full of suspense and horror from Britain’s ‘master of horror’, Adam Nevill, twice winner of the August Derleth award. 

In Barrington House, an upmarket block in London, there is an empty apartment. No one goes in, no one comes out. And it has been that way for 50 years. A young American woman, Apryl, arrives at Barrington House. She's been left an apartment by her mysterious Great Aunt Lillian, who died in strange circumstances. Rumours claim Lillian was mad. But her diary suggests she was implicated in a horrific and inexplicable event decades ago. Determined to learn something of this eccentric woman, Apryl begins to unravel the hidden story of Barrington House. She discovers that a transforming, evil force still inhabits the building. And the doorway to Apartment 16 is a gateway to something altogether more terrifying.

An excellent listen

I've always enjoyed Adam Nevills writing, Apartment 16 being my favourite. Needless to say I was extremely happy to see it released on Audible.

This is a dark story and both female and male narrator's do an excellent job of portraying each character. Sarah Borges range of accents being particularly noteworthy.

The story itself is fairly scary, but what has always stood out for me is the mounting sense of dread that this story evokes.

An excellent listen for the gloomy Autum and Winter months coming up!
