Published in the US by Blumhouse Books / Vintage Books & Anchor Books and the UK and throughout the Commonwealth by Pan Macmillan, The Apartment is the next terrifying and tense book from writing duo SL Grey, also known as Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg.

The Apartment is published in the US this October, and in South Africa, Ireland and the Commonwealth in September. If you’re in the UK, though, you’ll have to wait til March 2017.

The Apartment tells the story of Mark and Steph, who are struggling to move on with their lives after an armed break-in at their home shakes their once-idyllic world. A house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online seems to provide the perfect chance to leave their troubles behind them, but the Paris apartment is a run-down wreck and the French couple can’t be reached.
