Description

Some doors are better left closed . . .

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 fifty years. Until the night watchman hears a disturbance after midnight and investigates. What he experiences is enough to change his life forever.

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 . . .

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

From Publishers Weekly

16 September 2013 – Inheriting a relative’s posh London apartment subjects a naïve 28-year-old American to supernatural peril in this formulaic horror novel. Stephen, head porter of Barrington House, tells Apryl Beckford that her great-aunt Lillian’s mental health had been declining for years. Apryl decides to stay for a while to investigate Lillian’s background and that of Felix Hessen, an artist who died mysteriously at Barrington House. Scruffy porter Seth, plagued by increasingly insistent demands from a mysterious hooded boy, is ever more attracted to the apartment and its strange noises. As Seth’s domination by the hooded boy becomes more macabre, Apryl’s request that he help solve the mystery about Hessen provides a welcome dimension of ambiguity that leaves his commitment in question until his final decision. A sudden revelation by Stephen provides a dramatic character reversal that partially justifies the predictable resolution. Nevill (The Ritual) does little to develop Apryl’s lackluster character; somewhat more engrossing are the nightmarish scenes of everyday London.

Customer Reviews

Great

I don't normally read books but I downloaded the sample of this and couldn't stop reading!! Defiantly recommend to others :)

Excellent

Read this if you love intelligent and truly chilling tales of the supernatural that pay excellent homage to the likes of H.P. Lovecraft. Brilliant novel that truly captures and never lets go.
Pity that Banquet of the Damned, the novel which Neville wrote prior to this one, isn't available here. I would love to read it.
This author is someone to watch.

WTH?

What on earth is this book about? Tried hard to get into it, but got far too weird..
