Everything stays the same for the tenants of The Beresford, a grand old apartment building just outside the city ... until the doorbell rings... Will Carver returns with an eerie, deliciously and uncomfortably dark standalone thriller.

'A gripping novel laced with humour and cutting character insight ... a thrill from start to finish. Expect the unexpected!' Sarah Pinborough

'Equally enthralling and appalling ... unlike anything I've read in a very long while' James Oswald

'Ridiculously addictive' S J Watson
_______________

Just outside the city - any city, every city - is a grand, spacious but affordable apartment building called The Beresford.

There's a routine at The Beresford.

For Mrs May, every day's the same: a cup of cold, black coffee in the morning, pruning roses, checking on her tenants, wine, prayer and an afternoon nap. She never leaves the building.

Abe Schwartz also lives at The Beresford. His housemate, Sythe, no longer does. Because Abe just killed him.

In exactly sixty seconds, Blair Conroy will ring the doorbell to her new home and Abe will answer the door. They will become friends. Perhaps lovers.

And, when the time comes for one of them to die, as is always the case at The Beresford, there will be sixty seconds to move the body before the next unknowing soul arrives at the door.

Because nothing changes at The Beresford, until the doorbell rings...

Eerie, dark, superbly twisted and majestically plotted, The Beresford is the stunning standalone thriller from one of crime fiction's most exciting names.
