Book Review - The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

The world of finance can be lucrative and cutthroat, especially when you are on top of your game.  Vincent, Jules, Sylvie, and Sam are successful in their field and have garnered a few enemies while making their way to the top. With their successful lifestyle, they have many options afforded to them because of their status and success.

The team is invited to participate in an escape the room style team building activity. With budget cuts and layoff looming around them,  they are excited to prove themselves. However, when the lights go off, the doors refuse to open, and with temperatures rising, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary game. 

With rising tempers and personalities clash, they realize they have to put their differences aside if they want to survive. As the game begins, the team realizes their darkest secrets will be revealed. Are they willing to pay the price for their horrendous actions? What are they willing to do to escape their prison?

The author beautifully illustrated how greed can corrupt human nature. I was astonished at the things the characters did to get what they wanted. I found the ending satisfying but, it did leave a few questions unanswered.  The story kept readings guessing who could have planned such an elaborate scheme to get their revenge. The novel was an engrossing read and I can't wait to read more by the author.
