Review: The View From Nob Hill by Ty Hutchinson

Publisher Description:

I watched a man fall to his death. The following day the connections began.

I think I have the perfect life. I’m married to an amazing man, have two beautiful children, and live in a three-story home with a million-dollar view. That all changed in three days.

While waiting for my husband to come home for date night, I finished two bottles of Cabernet and watched a man fall from the top of a building. Actually, I’m not sure what I saw because of the wine. But the following day, the news reported that Errol Tiller, someone I sort of knew, had committed suicide by leaping from his balcony.

It’s a troubling sight if that’s what I witnessed. I tried to forget and move on, but the connections started immediately. One by one, I learned my family and best friend were keeping secrets that connected them to Errol, making me question whether it was suicide.

To make matters worse, the police have questions about what I may or may not have seen that evening. Did I see something more than Errol falling? I wish I could answer that question, but I drank a lot of wine that night.

There is one thing I know for sure. Everyone trusts me to keep their secrets, but I’m afraid I have to turn on one of them.

The View from Nob Hill is a gripping read that will have you guessing from beginning to end. If you’re a fan of Frieda McFadden and Shari Lapena, you’ll love this page-turning thriller.

Thrilling Reads Review

As a San Francisco resident and avid reader of thrillers set in the city, I was excited to dive into Ty Hutchinson’s latest novel, “The View from Nob Hill.” And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

The story revolves around the mysterious death of Errol Tiller, a wealthy executive who falls from the top of his swanky building in the Nob Hill neighborhood. Was it an accident? Suicide? Or something more sinister? The reader is kept guessing and chasing back and forth between various suspects, all with their own secrets and motives.

What I loved about this book was how the author, who used to live in San Francisco, really captures the essence of the city and its unique neighborhoods. The characters are well-drawn and interesting, and the way their secrets are intertwined kept me hooked until the very end.

The main protagonist, Jill Pittman, is a relatable and flawed character who witnesses the fall from her apartment across the street. Her perspective adds an extra layer of tension to this already twisty and turny domestic thriller.

While Ty Hutchinson is known for his crime and assassin thrillers, he proves himself to be a master of the psychological thriller with “The View from Nob Hill.” And while this novel is a standalone, fans of his other series will enjoy discovering Easter eggs included in this book.

Overall, I highly recommend “The View from Nob Hill” to anyone looking for a thrilling read that will keep them guessing until the very end.

It's safe to say that Alan Petersen loves mystery and thriller books. He writes high-octane thrillers, hosts the MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR podcast, and reviews thriller/mystery books.
