Published in the US by Blumhouse Books/Vintage Books and Anchor Books and in the UK and throughout the Commonwealth by Pan Macmillan, The Apartment is the next terrifying and tense book from writing duo SL Grey.


The Apartment is published in the US this October, and in South Africa, Ireland and the Commonwealth in September. If you're in the UK, though, you'll have to wait till March 2017.


The Apartment tells the story of Mark and Steph, who are struggling to move on with their lives after an armed break-in at their home shakes their once-idyllic world.

A house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online seems to provide the perfect chance to leave their troubles behind them, but the Paris apartment is a run-down wreck and the French couple can’t be reached.

Steven Spielberg's Amblin Partners / DreamWorks have optioned SL Grey's upcoming thriller, The Apartment for a film adaptation, Variety magazine reported earlier this week. The story centers on a couple struggling to move on after armed robbers break into their home and brutalize them. The duo makes a house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online but the supposedly luxurious apartment is run-down and they’re unable to contact the couple. They return home after a series of increasingly unsettling events, with neither able to shake the feeling that there’s now something sinister about their own home.


S.L. Grey is a collaboration between Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg. Sarah is a novelist and screenwriter and die-hard zombie fanatic. Louis is a Johannesburg-based fiction writer and editor.
