Description

This program includes a bonus interview with the author.In Megan Goldin's unforgettable debut, The Escape Room, four young Wall Street rising stars discover the price of ambition when an escape room challenge turns into a lethal game of revenge.

Welcome to the escape room. Your goal is simple. Get out alive.

In the lucrative world of finance, Vincent, Jules, Sylvie, and Sam are at the top of their game. They've mastered the art of the deal and celebrate their success in style—but a life of extreme luxury always comes at a cost.

Invited to participate in an escape room as a team-building exercise, the ferociously competitive co-workers crowd into the elevator of a high rise building, eager to prove themselves. But when the lights go off and the doors stay shut, it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary competition: they're caught in a dangerous game of survival.

Trapped in the dark, the colleagues must put aside their bitter rivalries and work together to solve cryptic clues to break free. But as the game begins to reveal the team's darkest secrets, they realize there's a price to be paid for the terrible deeds they committed in their ruthless climb up the corporate ladder. As tempers fray, and the clues turn deadly, they must solve one final chilling puzzle: which one of them will kill in order to survive?

Praise for The Escape Room:

"High wire tension from the first moment to the last. Four ruthless people locked in a deadly game where victory means survival. Gripping and unforgettable!" — Harlan Coben

"Amazing...a thriller set in an elevator [that explores] the vast territory of people's worst natures. A nightmarish look inside ourselves. Simply riveting." — Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author

        June 3, 2019
        Australian author Goldin makes her debut with a riveting, if flawed, tale of greed and revenge set on Wall Street. After being called to an out-of-office meeting, four investment bankers from the Stanhope and Sons firm are trapped in an elevator on their way to an escape room challenge organized by their company. They realize that the elevator itself is the escape room when they start to receive increasingly more personal puzzles to solve on the elevator’s TV monitor. Meanwhile, in flashbacks, recent hire Sara Hall becomes indoctrinated into the firm’s culture of long hours and incredible pay. When a coworker dies, Sara wonders whether foul play was involved. Though both plots start off strong, the elevator narrative slows as it waits for Sara’s story to catch up. Lucky flukes and coincidences stretch credulity, and the unlikability of those targeted for revenge lessens the scheme’s impact. But these shortcomings aren’t fatal. Thriller fans will eagerly turn the pages to see what happens next. 150,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: David Gernert, Gernert Company.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Two storylines unfold in alternate chapters in this twisty psychological thriller on audio. The first features Sara Hall and is convincingly narrated by January LaVoy. An ambitious finance graduate, Sara gets the job of her dreams at an investment bank and seems at first to be doing well. The second storyline, narrated by Ramon De Ocampo, with LaVoy handling some of the voices, involves four fiercely competitive colleagues who are forced to participate in a team-building exercise in an elevator. When the doors shut and the lights go off, it's soon clear that this is no benign game: They're fighting for survival. But who is victim, and who is culprit? As each chapter reveals more clues, any illusions about the motives of these bankers vanishes. This audiobook will keep listeners hooked right through the clever ending.
