About The Book

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?

My Thoughts

Going to an Escape Room is a way to have fun with friends trying to solve a mystery; not in this case…
Let’s say that the four main characters are not the nicest people you’ll expect; rich, presumptuous and vile, they will have to do a compulsory work activity, simply be part of an Escape Room. Something that would had to be fun it will change drastically when the clues to discover who killed Sara Hall will start pointing at each other.
The story is mainly based on the story of Sara Hall and the situation of the four co-workers closed in a lift trying to discover the truth. You can expect some nasty moments and some dangerous truths. Because all of them, Vincent, Jules, Sylvie, and Sam are ready to do anything possible to continue escalating on their careers and having more money, even killing.
This had been an interesting and compelling read, not only for the case but to show us what the money does to people, the dark side of being “rich”. Money is like a drug, you always want more, and when you can’t have it you would do anything, anything for more.
This is a book that will make you re-think your priorities and co-workers relationship; what does your life worth it?
