The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

Reviewed by B. Ullsvik, October 2020

Vincent, Sylvie, Sam, and Jules have always been in competition with each other. Since they work at the same law firm together, it would make sense that they don’t like each other. They live a life of extreme luxury, but that kind of lifestyle always comes at a cost. The team is invited to participate in an escape room challenge as a team-building exercise.  But what they didn’t know is that this would be much more than an escape room. Trapped in an elevator in a high rise building, it becomes clear that this is a game of survival. The team members must put aside their egos and rivalries if they want to make it out alive. As the game progresses, they work together to solve clues, but in the process, the team’s darkest secrets are revealed. In the end, they must solve one final puzzle: Which one will kill in order to survive?
