A haunting thriller about a troubled married couple whose vacation to Paris leads them into a nightmare. Mark and Steph have a relatively happy family with their young daughter in sunny Cape Town until one day when armed men in balaclavas break in to their home. Left traumatized but physically unharmed, Mark and Steph are unable to return to normal and live in constant fear. When a friend suggests a restorative vacation abroad via a popular house swapping website, it sounds like the perfect plan. They find a genial, artistic couple with a charming apartment in Paris who would love to come to Cape Town. Mark and Steph can’t resist the idyllic, light-strewn pictures, and the promise of a romantic getaway. But once they arrive in Paris, they quickly realize that nothing is as advertised. When their perfect holiday takes a violent turn, the cracks in their marriage grow ever wider and dark secrets from Mark's past begin to emerge. Deftly weaving together two complex and compelling narrators, S. L. Grey builds an intimate and chilling novel of a disintegrating marriage in the wake of a very real trauma. The Apartment is a terrifying and tour-de-force of horror, of psychological thrills, and of haunting suspense.

 This book will actually make you wonder what is going on, can this be happening.  Deep, dark and evil and all of those things will affect you  in your real life and in your life as a reader.   You are given a somewhat normal married couple, Mark and Steph and their young daughter living in Cape Town. Then a break-in occurs. Not your typical home robbery break in, but these men were armed.  Something very different.  No one is hurt but the break in puts a real fear in them. They are in need of a vacation.   The perfect vacation comes up with a house swap.  Sounds so great but what happens when they arrive in Paris?  Is it romantic and perfect? What will long hidden dark secrets due to their already frail marriage?  Terrifying and haunting!
