The Escape Room

by Megan Goldin

The Escape Room Synopsis

Welcome to the escape room. Your goal is simple. Get out alive. In the lucrative world of Wall Street finance, Vincent, Jules, Sylvie and Sam are the ultimate high-flyers. Ruthlessly ambitious, they make billion-dollar deals and live lives of outrageous luxury. Getting rich is all that matters, and they'll do anything to get ahead. When the four of them become trapped in an elevator escape room, things start to go horribly wrong. They have to put aside their fierce office rivalries and work together to solve the clues that will release them. But in the confines of the elevator the dark secrets of their team are laid bare. They are made to answer for profiting from a workplace where deception, intimidation and sexual harassment thrive. Tempers fray and the escape room's clues turn more and more ominous, leaving the four of them dangling on the precipice of disaster. If they want to survive, they'll have to solve one more final puzzle: which one of them is a killer? Praise for The Escape Room: High wire tension from the first moment to the last. Four ruthless people locked in a deadly game where victory means survival. Gripping and unforgettable! Harlan Coben Fantastic. One of my favourite books of the year. Lee Child Amazing...a thriller set in an elevator [that explores] the vast territory of people's worst natures. A nightmarish look inside ourselves. Simply riveting. Louise Penny A sharp, slick, utterly engrossing thriller. This knockout debut hooked me from the first page and didn't let go. Cristina Alger, USA Today bestselling author of The Banker's Wife
