Publisher's Summary

Corona Heights is more than an apartment building. Some believe it is haunted. Others feel it is cursed. None have been willing to confront the terrible secret hidden within its walls. Until now.

Fiona Graves is the building's newest resident. She has given no thought to the darkness of its past. She only wants a place to call home while she begins to rebuild her life. But it will not be that simple. Life in Corona Heights rarely is.

There is something buried inside the walls of her apartment; a secret so horrific, so terrifying, that no one has dared speak of its existence. No one except for Olivia Shelby, the 10-year-old girl who lives next door. Fearing for her life, Olivia is desperate to confront the horrors of Corona Heights, and she has chosen Fiona to help her.

Faced with deadly supernatural forces far beyond their understanding, Fiona and Olivia must reveal the frightening truth of what Corona Heights really is, and the darkness that has, up until now, been safely contained within its walls.

But the pair will quickly discover that Corona Heights is good at keeping its secrets, and it will not surrender them without a fight.

highly enjoyable

I love horror books, and thrillers. I listen to them often. Some of then tend to blend in. Not to say that they are bad books, but they are the same storyline.
This book was very refreshing. Not only was it good, but it had a new story line. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes this genre. and are horror and psychological thrillers fans.

Anna did a fine job reading this book to me, and I would read anther book from E M Parker again, and listen to anther book read to me from Anna.

Very good psychological thriller

Any additional comments?

Very good psychological thriller with lots of supernatural elements. The characters are drawn out very well (I love Iris in particular) and the story moves along at a nice pace. It gets a little 'out there' towards the end, but Fiona's ongoing personal drama keeps the story grounded and it ends nicely. This was the first I've heard of E.M. Parker and his books. I hope there are more to come. I understand this is a series, so I am interested to see where it goes next. The narrator was good too. There were places where her emotion was evident and I could tell she was really getting into the story. That makes a difference, especially in a story like this.

Creepy but slow

It took me awhile to get into this book. It has enough going on that I kept listening but I did lose interest at times and skip to the next chapter. The narration was good, though, not my favorite. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Great story.

Loved it. Great story. Kept me Engrossed from the beginning. Wasn’t a huge fan of the narrator but got used to her as it went on. Will definitely check out other books by this author. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for my honest review.

I just couldn't get into the story

I made it to about chapter 4 and I just couldn't get into the story. The narrator was ok. She appears to be new at it, which is ok. I just couldn't get past it. Maybe I'll give it another try soon as the story premise sounds interesting.

Excellent

The narrator makes the already unlikable MC Fiona even more multifaceted than without the judgemental/whiney inflections.
The thing that stands out the most is the character development. She starts out just like anyone you would see on the street. Somewhat intelligent and driven, and then the layers build. She's an alcoholic who is recently divorced and he ex moves across the country, taking their son with him. You easily simplify with her and even find yourself rooting for her. Then other facets of her personality begin to shine through. She has a trust fund, and she tends to think she's above others who are in similar situations. It just keeps building.
Great story. I have to say I didn't expect the ending and I hope to hear more from this authors.
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

A haunted apartment building

Having uprooted her life from Washington to Denver in the hopes of getting custody of her son, Fiona settles into the Corona Heights apartment complex and finds herself in a creepy building in E.M. Parker’s The Thin Wall. After having been arrested for drunk driving with her son in the car, Fiona’s life hit rock bottom, forcing her to face her alcoholism and other issues. But the apartment keeps drawing Fiona’s attention. Her next door neighbors, Natalie and Noah, get in screaming matches in between their loud metal music that drives her crazy, while Fiona has conversations with Olivia, Natalie’s 10-year-old daughter, through the very thin wall separating their bedrooms. Then the janitor who lives down the hall turns up dead, apparently of suicide, but with some questionable features.

This book is filled with intrigue and creepy details. I kept asking myself whether the strange events were real, with a natural explanation, or supernatural. The details sometimes made me shiver.

Anna Castiglioni performs the audio version of this book. I really appreciated the way she had tears in her voice when characters were crying and almost made me cry. She has a unique voice and empathizes with the characters in her narration. She helped to bring me more deeply into the story.

The Thin Wall does a lot to keep the readers drawn to the story in this book. The character of Fiona comes across as a very real woman dealing with the challenges of life and determined to turn over a new leaf. I don’t usually like creepy books, and this wouldn’t be my first choice of listening material, but I was pulled into this book, almost against my will. I give it four stars.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the narrator, but that in no way affected my review of it.

Entertaining Listen

This book has kept me entertained during some very long and tedious commutes. The characters are fun and there are some satisfying twists along the way. The story is suspenseful and there is some violence, but I appreciated that it wasn't too gory or graphic. Looking forward to the next installments.
