Summary

A brand-new horror novel from acclaimed author Iain Rob Wright. Can you figure out the secret and escape before it’s too late?

Cheryl wants to get to know her co-workers. That’s the only reason she agreed to go on a “company outing.” She and six of her colleagues are going to be locked inside a room with only their wits to help them. If they escape in time, there’ll be prize money. Fail, and the repercussions might be deadly. 

Cheryl will soon find out that the people she works with all share a secret, one they are willing to kill for.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Justice. It’s an important theme of this book.

I didn’t know what to think when it first started, but once things started to take off, I couldn’t stop listening. I binged the entire audiobook in one setting. Cheryl is the new girl at the office. She wants to fit in, but it seems as if no matter how hard she tries, she doesn’t connect with her coworkers. When a “company outing” announces everyone’s name but hers, she’s off put. Thanks to a mixup, she ends up going, and wishes more than anything that she hadn’t.

This is a suspenseful read plotwise and characterwise. When the story begins, we don’t know much about any of the characters, but as the story trudges along, we’re given the backstory to each and why they’ve landed themselves in the escape room. Everyone has secrets, each secret worse than the last.

There’s plenty of torture and gore, the perfect dash of horror to compliment the suspense.

Aubrey Parsons’ narration was perfect, bringing the characters to life. He had a unique voice for each male character which I found especially interesting.  

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
