Summary 'Welcome to the escape room. Your goal is simple. Get out alive.' In the lucrative, high-pressure world of Wall Street finance, Vincent, Jules, Sylvie and Sam are the best of the best. Their team makes billion-dollar deals. They live lives of vanity and luxury. Making money is the only thing that matters and they'll do whatever it takes to get ahead - and to get what they're owed. But when the four of them become trapped in an elevator escape room, things start to go terrifyingly wrong. In the pursuit of wealth they've learned to live with each other's secrets and flaws, but in the confines of the elevator their rivalries and jealousies are laid bare, leaving them dangling on the precipice of disaster. They'll have to work together to solve the puzzles that will release them from the elevator, but the clues they're given force them to reckon with their past - and long-departed colleagues. And as their escape grows more and more improbable, one secret is revealed that they can't ignore: one of them is a killer
