Publisher's Summary

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 final puzzle: which one of them is a killer?

Kept me listening for more

Really enjoyed listening to this. Yes, most of the characters are shallow and despicable, but I was kept hanging, wondering how it was all going to pan out. Lots of twists and turns. I’d recommend.

The Escape Room is a "must read" book

I was absolutely enthralled throughout the rendition of The Escape Room. It is an outstandingly written book with a totally intriguing story line. It will keep you engrossed from beginning to end.

I bought this book because I loved 'The Girl in Kellers Way'...I was certainly not disappointed!! I was gripped from start to finish. Megan Goldin is a superb author, and I can't wait for her next book!!

twists and turns intrigue

We enjoyed the dialogue. Complex story line but easy to follow. Didn't predict the outcome which added to its intrigue. Good narration.

A great read!

Brilliant plot and storyline! Fast-paced - kept me riveted. Good enough to listen to in one sitting. A new favourite author, and well narrated.

Great but end disappointing

Great book - well narrated - unfortunately the end was poorly done - doesn’t match the characters - missing a chapter probably because the whole thing would fall apart upon realisation - characters developed then turned into B-grade cardboard cut-outs which differed to the people - I liked it until towatds the end when it became unreal and contradictory. Poorly developed.
