๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

Set in the world of Investment Banking, the high stakes, cutthroat, "I'll step on you before you can step on me", kind of atmosphere.  Coupled with the mystery of an escape room challenge...made for a very interesting backdrop.  The story is told in alternating POV's between Sara Hall and the 4 people who have found themselves stuck in an elevator...that's supposed to be an escape room.  The question is...who put them there and why???  This story is not without its could-that-really-happen moments, but despite that, it's an indulging kind of Mystery/Thriller that I found quite entertaining.

I did have one issue...and it was with my advanced reader copy, it was, quite possibly the worse arc I've ever read before.  There was a ton of 1's and 0's, some of which had - or + in front of them, throughout the entire thing.  So flipping distracting.  Has anyone else ever had this with a kindle version of an arc?  I've had issues in the past with weird chapter breaks, but this was crazy they even had the numbers in between letters of a particular word.
