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, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Excellent story and narration

I love when I happen upon a completely original story. I've read literally hundreds of psychological thrillers and it's tough to find something new and original. The Escape Room captured me from the beginning all the way to the end.. No boring or drawn out scenes. Great character development! Lastly, January LaVoy never disappoints and she was well matched with Ramon De Ocampo.

Psychological thriller of the year!

Occasionally, maybe once every two or three years, a psychological thriller is published that leaves me thinking that the authors brain is a dark and maybe dangerous place. Examples include Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and You by Caroline Kepnes. THE ESCAPE ROOM by Australian author Megan Goldin is such a book. Protagonist Sara Hall is certainly different from Amy Dunne and Joe Goldberg. Read the publisher's summary which sets up the plot well. There are some rather large flaws with the story, but I'll remember the book for its true psychological thriller plot.

The two person narration works well. January LaVoy does the first person voice of Sara Hall while Ramon De Ocampo reads the inside the elevator chapters.

THE ESCAPE ROOM is a dark, dark story that many will not enjoy. But for those that like serious psychological thrillers this novel should be perfect.

Woah now! I didn't see that coming!! This is the BEST thriller I have read/listened to in months. And when I say months that means I've nearly read 50 books or audiobooks. This was great!!

Edge of my seat the whole time!

It was honestly different than I was expecting but I loved every second of it. It was cleaver, fun, suspenseful, and exciting the whole way through! I’m very happy with the ending too!

A real page-turner !

I won’t say much about the story line(s) so that you can discover the surprises for yourself !
There are two story arcs which are parallel yet very different ! Such a well -crafted story with great characters and a plot line that keeps you on the edge of your seat

Fantastic!

Although I've listened to 100s of audiobooks, I rarely write reviews. However, everything about this book was exceptional: character development, plot, suspense, intrigue. The narrators are top notch - I'm looking for other books narrated by them. Am definitely following this author!

Surprises can make your day or...

This story is quite unique filled with drama and strong characters that tweak your psyche and cause you to care about what could possibly happen next. I've rated over 300 books and given 5 stars very grudgingly. This one has the psychological hooks that make for good movies. Cheers, Ken
