Left traumatized but physically unharmed, Mark and Steph are unable to return to normal and live in constant fear. When a friend suggests a restorative vacation abroad via a popular house swapping website, it sounds like the perfect plan. They find a genial, artistic couple with a charming apartment in Paris who would love to come to Cape Town. Mark and Steph can’t resist the idyllic, light-strewn pictures, and the promise of a romantic getaway. But once they arrive in Paris, they quickly realize that nothing is as advertised. When their perfect holiday takes a violent turn, the cracks in their marriage grow ever wider and dark secrets from Mark's past begin to emerge.   Deftly weaving together two complex and compelling narrators, S.

The Apartment is a terrifying tour-de-force of horror, of psychological thrills, and of haunting suspense.

Only read this if you truly want horror. I read it a year and a half ago and thinking back on it still gives me shivers. Original and haunting.

I just grabbed this off the shelf, and I really, really enjoyed this one! Love the psychological tension. Not just a "ghostly" book, but filled with emotional strain and suspense that I love in a good book. A fun read for sure.

Should have followed my instincts and stopped reading , but thought it would get wrong I was......weird, flight of ideas, and totally unsatisfying read......leave it on the shelf
