"The Escape Room" by Megan Goldin is SO GOOD!

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin is a wild thriller about ruthless investment bankers who are controlled by greed. Four find themselves trapped inside an elevator for what they think is an exercise in team building. Sarah Hall is ecstatic to get hired and become part of this team, but when they turn on her when she tries to do the right thing, her life goes south fast.

This is a contemporary thriller that kept my interest. I liked Sarah Hall and Lucy, but did not like Sam, Jules, Sylvie or Vincent. I would strongly recommend that you do not read the prologue because it sort of gives away the ending. I liked the ending to this one in some ways, but think it is also sad in a way! I finished this in two days!

Gerard's review 8-20-19, 5++ stars:
The Escape Room by Megan Goldin is about a group of investment bankers.  Their firm only hires the best of the best!  One day, this group has to meet for a team-building training exercise.  They are a competitive bunch and discover that the exercise becomes a test for survival!

This is such a great debut thriller!  The pacing of the book is excellent!  The characters were brought out really well and it is very believable!  I had to keep going to see how it all played out.  You must read this one!  I LOVED IT!

Teaser from page 154:  It all gave me temporary amnesia, or perhaps willful blindness, at the damage we'd wrought on the lives of the nameless people at the factory in Michigan, or a hundred other places affected by our decisions.  We used profit as justification for shattering lives.

  1. Being trapped in an elevator for any length of time sounds absolutely awful to me! It's a great premise for a thriller. I definitely want to read this one.
