Midwest Book Review:
This is a terrific horror tale that hooks the reader with a need to know why the hospital locked away The Ninth Floor. Fans will wonder whether ghosts walk the corridors, if this is a psychological suspense, or a psychopath; and why Ryan's parents treat her as they do. Liz Schulte provides her
audience with a strong thriller that will have fans suffering the "Jaws Syndrome" to stays at hospitals."
About the Author
Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

Some readers have categorized "The Ninth Floor" as a mystery-thriller with some romance. It's definitely a mystery, but thriller? No, not a thriller; not even a little scary. I found the premise to be interesting as I kept reading to learn why and how everything was connected to Ryan. Unfortunately, I guessed who the killer was early on and figured out the reasoning behind it all. Then there's the family dynamic which I found to be very bizarre. I understood Ryan's reasons for not being close to her family, even moving away. For her parents to ensure that she not stay with them, stay far away, was odd and to be honest, ridiculous. If they wanted to have a close relationship with her, perhaps telling her the truth would have been in everyone's best interest regardless of what was going on. (I hope this is making sense.) And the romance? Definitely there but only because Ryan was totally clueless when it came to choosing the right guy thereby dragging the romantic angle on and on. I also thought the ending was very abrupt. You're reading the story getting to the end and when you do, BAM! It's over. In the end, an easy read that some mystery lovers might enjoy.
There were just too many general questions not asked/addressed or if asked left unanswered...like who, what, when, where, how or most importantly why. There were elements introduced that just kind of disappeared later. It was all over the place.
The evil on the ninth floor...ummm what happened to it? You base a good portion of your book around it and what...was the reader suppose to assume the rest of the plot? A ward full of babies die, in a few days, months or the whole year to warrant having fake class pictures? Is this a small, medium or large town? Is it a small city? What happened to the voices that some heard and what was the tie-in? Why the demon possession? How can you record a couple's make out sessions on stairwell cameras and not the murders that happened in the same stairwell. Is the stalker and electronic genius as well? God the main character practically had her panties off when she said she wanted to take things real slow with a guys she did not know at all. What about the attraction to the body guard that had brewed literally overnight. I wonder what would have happened if she'd floored it?
Honestly, this author needs to work on her story and character development. She had the makings of a good story but just did not pull it off. BTW any other authors that have recommended this book as a must read, will be on my "Do Not Waste Your Time And Money List" as well!
If you're a fan of Schulte, you should read this. If you're a fan of scary, suspense you should read this. If you don't mind a little creepiness and like a good romance, then you should read this.
