ABOUT THE BOOK
Despite living in the same three-flat house in the suburbs of London, the residents are strangers to one another. The bottom floor is home to Tam, a recent ex-cop who spends his days drowning his sorrows in whisky. On the middle floor is Nick, a young man with Asperger's who likes to stick to his schedules and routines. The top floor belongs to Karen, a doctor and researcher who has spent her life trying to understand the rising rates of autism. They have lived their lives separately, until now, when an unsolved murder and the man on the middle floor connect them all together.
Told from three points of view, The Man on the Middle Floor is about disconnection in all its forms; sexual, physical, parental and emotional. It questions whether society is meeting the needs of the fast growing autistic section of society, or exacerbating it.
Thought-provoking and thrilling, The Man on the Middle Floor will leave readers talking.
THE MAN ON THE MIDDLE FLOOR by Elizabeth S. Moore was NOTHING like what I expected and is a tough one to categorise as it really is very different.
In a three flat house in London lives three strangers who never see or know each other until a murder forces them all out of their comfort zones and into each others company. Tam is an old-school cop who suddenly finds himself retired because he just doesn't fit in any longer. Nick is a sensitive man who has Asperger's and who needs his routines and structures to function. And then there is Karen, a doctor who walks away from everything in the hopes of making history through her research.
As the story is told from each character's point of view, the reader really gets an insight into the characters which is not always a good thing. Dealing with sensitive topics such as autism and abuse the author doesn't hold back and it can make for very uncomfortable reading at times but I think that is what the writer is looking for - discussion, disagreement over how issues are handled, how our society functions and lets down so many, and this novel will guarantee that a conversation is actually happening.
THE MAN ON THE MIDDLE FLOOR by Elizabeth S. Moore is not an easy-read crime fiction novel but an in-depth, often disturbing look at modern life with plenty of opinions that will get you talking and keep you interested to the very end.
Elizabeth S. Moore has worked as a journalist since she won the Decanter Young Wine Writer of the Year at seventeen.
