Synopsis of Apartment 16
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 . . .
More famous than it deserves to be. It gets quite long, the descriptions are extended to infinity, without being able to give the feeling of fear (and, least of all, terror) that the author tries to achieve. The idea isn’t bad, but it doesn’t reach the standard. That said, it keeps the suspense and the intrigue until the end, though some of the things are guessable. Correct.
