Cat Thomas, a brilliant fraud investigator, has just relocated from Florida to a dreamy flat in historic Edinburgh. Everything seems perfect. Everything seems serene. Except for the unbelievably noisy wannabe rockstar upstairs.
Soon Cat’s blissful new life is in ruins. Desperate, she’s willing to try anything. When all else fails, she makes an appeal … to Satan.
And suddenly everything is eerily quiet. But her nightmare has only just begun …
The Devil Upstairs was an intriguing, darkly delicious read, beautifully done and very addictive.
The Devil is in the details so they say, Anthony O’Neill manages said details with a clever insight, setting the scene, creating an atmosphere then setting his characters off like a bomb.
I related so much to Cat and her noisy neighbour – a truly abhorrent man with literally no redeeming features. In an attempt at catharsis Cat puts in a request to the Devil, what follows is a brilliantly adventurous read with some stand out wow moments and some gloriously violent resolutions to Cat’s problems.
With some intelligent little twists in the Devils tale and a hugely satisfying ending, The Devil Upstairs was a terrific read. More please.
