Publisher's Summary

Autumn Sanderson goes by Lark now. No one in her new life can know who she was. No one from her old life can know where she is now.

Drowning in debt, she’s desperate to land a job - any job. When she finds herself at an interview for a mysterious company offering an exorbitant salary, she jumps at the chance. But things aren’t quite what they seem....

She soon learns about the company’s peculiar hiring process. Locked in a luxury cabin with five strangers who go only by their code names, she begins to question exactly what it is she signed up for.

The company, riddled with secrets and led by a cryptic boss known only as Mr. X, has strange rules and even stranger challenges for their candidates. After each day’s competition, the candidates gather around the dinner table to eat, drink, and spill their darkest secrets.

When Lark sees something she shouldn’t, she begins to ask questions, but she soon gets a warning to stop. It’s obvious she’s in danger, but why? What does the company want? How much can she trust the others in the house? Trapped in the remote house with no technology allowed, she realizes she must take drastic measures to find out the truth.

Highly Engrossing

What a “page turner” (couldn’t turn it off till the end even tho my plan was to ration it!). Really interesting, original story and the narration by Jayme Mattler excellent, prob the best I’ve heard so far. Didn’t cringe once (a great test!) with each change of male, female or accented depictions. Very realistic, like you’d imagine the voices in your head when book-reading. Off to search for more Kirsten Modglin books. If this sort of modern suspense/mystery storyline is your cup of tea, this won’t disappoint!

Don’t Read the Books Full Description

NO SPOILERS! Lovers of mystery and psychological thrillers should not read the books full description before listening to the story. It takes away some of the mystique and the journey of this story.

This story is immersive and takes you into an environment full of promise, intrigue, fear, and distrust. The full gambit of emotions.

It’s a fun journey and I especially enjoyed imaging myself in the protagonists shoes and wondering what I would do. It left me reflecting on what kind of person am I? How would I have done given the same experience.

I thought the narrator did a great job with differentiating the voices of characters. The story is very unique and I highly recommend it!

Was okay

I enjoyed the audible narrator. The story was okay. It felt a bit dramatic and far fetched, I was able to guess the ending. But it was a book I wanted to keep listening to. It wasn’t the best I’ve heard, and not the worst. It’s good if you are bored and just need something to listen to while doing other things.
