The eighth novel in the bestselling Torchwood range from BBC Books
Phil Ford has written scripts for both Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures for BBC Television, and also wrote the Alternate Reality Game for the official Torchwood website. His extensive screenwriting credits include episodes of Taggart, Bad Girls, New Captain Scarlet and Coronation Street.
The idea is simple - I always say that, didn't I? Residents in a new high-rise apartment block are disappearing. Not walking out, but really just disappearing. Something is taking them. Something is, well, pulling them into the walls. Hooked you yet? Well, Owen and Tosh have to pretend to be a married couple so they can get an apartment and see what is going on. Tosh's dream come true? Not really, when you remember Owen is dead as a coffin nail.
I enjoyed it up to the end. The ending was, frankly, kind of lame. Logical, reasonable, but still kind of, you've got to be kidding me, lame. In my humble view anyway. Still, worth buying or getting used.
I really enjoyed this story, though the end seemed to come a little too fast--I would have been happy for it to go on a lot longer. But because the author did so well portraying each of the main characters, I could have read another 100-200 pages and still have been happy. This book is a keeper and I look forward to reading it again someday.
