Each story was penned by a different author, about a different apartment in the building and what goes on there over the course of the same dark night. The anthology starts out with “A Hole in One” by David Chaudoir who pens a tale of an old detective who becomes obsessed with a mystery in one particular apartment in the building when a series of old diaries is dropped off to him by a colleague. The diaries detail a series of haunting events that take place while a professor is on sabbatical to write a book. He decides to investigate it himself, with unexpected results.
“Apartment 10” by Anna Dixon tells us about Scarlet, newly single and in a new place of her own trying to adjust to her break-up. Having caught her boyfriend, Charlie, cheating, she finally took steps to move out, with the help of her close friend, Justin. As she begins to settle in for the night, she hears a frantic banging on her door but no one is there. This happens a few more times before she locks herself in the bathroom and calls Justin for help. No one is there when Justin arrives and Scarlet has him go back to work, feeling silly and overly jumpy. She did have a drink after all, but then the knocking came back.
“The Demon of Apartment 13” penned by Jason White details a light-hearted seance gone terribly wrong for teen Danny and his younger sister, Georgia. They thought they summoned their dead father, but that is not dear old dad at the door oozing out of the smoking Ouija board.
One of my favorite stories was “ The Noises Outside Room 50” by MJ Dixon. Office Supervisor Matthew arrives home to set up a small work party when he sees that first, someone had spilled something foul, red and chunky all the way down the hallway and second, management had gifted everyone with new doormats. The spill was par for the course for the old building, but the doormats were weird and out of place, seeing as how management had not painted a wall or repaired a pipe in decades. He shrugs off both and goes inside to prepare for his party. As the night progresses, a variety of screams and noises are heard right outside his door. Only one workmate has shown up, his office crush, Kelsey and they both try to make the best of it as the night gets weirder and weirder. What he eventually discovers is shocking and unexpected.
I enjoyed each story in Castle Heights and really enjoyed the overall concept of the book. The stories were well-written, each one chilling, disturbing or all-out scary, full length concepts packed into tight little bits. 4.5 stars for Castle Heights.

This really works, from a weary detective to secret organizations, to killers, ancient burial grounds, and multiple people with deep dark secrets. I sped through this, not because it's short, because it isn't, it's a big book, but because it was so good. All those twisted dark tales behind apartment doors. Not for the faint of heart. True horror.
I started this on a break working a night shift and almost completely forgot where I was.
If I ever feel the need to move house, I will now be avoiding apartment blocks for the rest of my life. Seriously.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
