What Happened on Floor 34? by Caroline Corcoran

What Happened on Floor 34? starts off with a tension-filled bang.


Recently promoted to day editor, Rose works for London’s largest newspaper. She begins her shift shortly after the night editor finishes for the day. The two editors never cross paths, but they work closely together via email.

Suddenly, the night editor Will goes missing without a trace. Rose agrees to work nights until they replace Will. Rose becomes obsessed with figuring out what happened to the night editor.

Review of What Happened on Floor 34?

This thriller is compulsively readable and piles on twist after twist. Some of the twists were juicy, while others felt like they were there for shock value alone. Also, the author often hinted at some revelation but would not reveal it until many pages later, which was a minor annoyance.

Rose is an unreliable narrator that relies on booze and caffeine to get her through the days. It’s fairly obvious early on what caused her to take up drinking so much.

This was a serviceable thriller. It likely will not stick with me, but it did keep me wanting to find out how everything pieced together.

I would indeed read more from this author.
