“JUSTICE DEMANDS THE TRUTH!”
23-year-old Cheryl (Cher) has a fairly new job (she’s been there 3 months) and really wants to fit in and get to know her co-workers. 6 of her colleagues are going on a company weekend away, but Cheryl wasn’t invited as apparently “there weren’t enough spaces, so people were picked at random”. When Maggie asks her to take her place as she has other plans, Cheryl agrees and is quite looking forward to it.
The weekend getaway is a team building exercise at an Escape Room where you need to work as a team in order to solve puzzles to escape the room within the allotted time. If they escape within 90 minutes the prize is £1000 each.
This is a weekend that will never be forgotten, and Cheryl soon finds out that her colleagues all share a secret, and one that they will do whatever they can to keep! It could be the deadliest weekend of her life!
Overall, this is the first book that I have read by Iain Rob Wright and I am hooked. The premise of the story is great and quite simple, a group of co-workers go on a team building exercise and they soon discover their real hateful and disturbing personas. Locked in underground rooms, the game begins to take on a very personal role.
Escape! is a brutal and violent revenge and retribution horror packed with spine-tingling suspense and some great plot twists. It twists and turns delivering horror after horror, secret after secret. Most of the characters are despicable and hateful and yet you can’t help wanting to discover their dirty little secrets.
I found it to be gripping, thrilling, horrific and pure brilliance! I couldn’t put it down and loved the twists. If you are squeamish or easily scared, then this is not the book for you.
