From the author of the Sunday Times best seller Cocaine Nights comes an unnerving tale of life in a modern tower block running out of control. Within the concealing walls of an elegant 40-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on 'enemy' floors, and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for riots and technological mayhem.

The first line of this book is simply brilliant. After that this book was sadly disappointing on every level.

The narration was acceptable.

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from 20 years previously - a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

A ridiculous premise,
Awful, monstrous, unbelievable characters.
Pretty much everything about this book is bad.
The hi-light of this book was that characters talk about going to Tim hortons instead of Starbucks.
