Publisher's Summary

Livestreaming now! Trapdoor - Five go in, none come out.

Eva Kavinsky wakes in a dark cellar, with no memory of how she got here. Imprisoned with her, seemingly at random, are four men. The only way out is the trapdoor in the ceiling – and it's locked.

The single clue about what brings them all here is a cryptic message sprayed onto one wall. Connect the dots. Repent. A camera fixed high above reach is livestreaming this whole nightmare to the world. What confessions are they meant to make to their unseen audience?

With only a single lighter between them and the cellar steadily filling with water, Eva races to discover what connects her to the four men. But nobody here is who they claim to be. And in this dark place, secrets and lies are so much easier to tell than the truth that could destroy them all.

Fantastic read!

What a great story from a reliably wonderful author. Excellent performances as well. If you have time to indulge in one or two sittings, I highly recommend that!

I did not see that coming

I'm a big JP fan but this is his best one yet I think. It really doesn't go where you think it will... goosebumps.

Full of twists

I really enjoyed this book and thought the actors did an excellent job. The twist at the end was well done and kept me quessing to the end.

Suspense to the end

Great thriller story with a twist right to the end. The male narrator was awful though - stilted and monotone. Women were good.

Gripping story!

Thrilling story where you’re trying to work out what’s happening as it goes along. The narration was great and makes you feel trapped in the cellar with them! Very chilling!
