First it starts out as an edge of the seat straight forward thriller---how long can this giant of a man, yet still a man with human limitations, hold onto the cable of a falling elevator with his wife inside? You can almost feel the metal cable tearing into flesh as the car slips slowly downward.
Then in comes a supernatural twist that turns out to have a long and interesting history and the story takes on levels that a straight thriller would never explore.
Really well done. I will definitely seek out more work by this author.
