It is up to Peter to stop this horrendous plan.
Elevator Going Down
on Oct. 13, 2012
This story is disturbing...very disturbing, but in the same way that a good horror movie is disturbing. I chose this story because I had been impressed with Weger's first book, East Garrison. "Elevator Going Down" did not disappoint. Like I said, very disturbing, but I never wanted to stop reading it, to see what would eventually happen. This story of a woman trapped in a dead-end job slowly going crazy kept me interested right up to the creepy ending. Well worth the 99 cents. Weger has a gift for the macabre and an unfiltered and clever imagination.
