Thank you so much to St. Martins Press for providing me with a free copy of this book and for inviting me to participate in the blog tour!
I’m a huge fan of game-type thriller and suspense novels and I absolutely loved this book! I went into this book not knowing much about it and I think with this book, that’s what you need to do. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours and was reeling from it for a while.
This story follows a group of employees that work in the cutthroat finance world and each of them seems to be at the top of their game. They all live the life of luxury, but luxury comes at a cost. When they are all invited to participate in an escape room challenge for team-building purposes, they have no idea what they’re in for.
I loved the beginning of this book and how it flipped back and forth between the characters so you felt like you really got to know them. They were all well developed and I had a love/hate relationship with each of them for different reasons.
If you’ve ever seen the horror movie Devil, it has those types of vibes. A group of people stuck in an elevator, trying to figure out how to get out, and they start dropping dead one by one with no idea who the real killer is.
The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the incredibility of some of the things the main character did as revenge. It seemed a little far fetched for me and that’s the only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5.
