I was so excited to receive a finished copy of The Escape Room by Megan Goldin from St. Martin’s Press. This was a thriller like none I’ve ever read before, and it was a real page-turner!
Four finance hot-shots — Vince, Jules, Sam, and Sylvie — are forced into a team-building escape-room type exercise on a Friday afternoon. The escape room? An elevator at the top of a skyscraper. It quickly becomes clear that this is not an ordinary escape room. And at the center of it all, these four co-workers need to face their past transgressions and answer what happened to their former associate, Sara Hall.
This is a tightly written thriller that alternates between a tense situation inside the elevator and flashbacks to the past. You learn how the finance world works — full of high-priced gifts, drugs, and gender discrimination, at the least.
This was an absolute page turner, with lots of twists. It was not always the most believable thriller, but it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It’s a perfect summer read that will keep you guessing! Pick up your copy today!
