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.

Another brilliant read in one sitting!

At the time of writing this, it's 03:20AM. I've only just finished it. When I pressed play at just before 9PM last night, I had a feeling I wouldn't be turning it off until it did automatically at the end, and boy was I right! But I certainly wasn't expecting what I got. I wondered how Iain would work this, but what I got was the brilliant bloody, violent, sexual horror Iain is very good at writing. I'm so glad he's given us contact info at the end of this, because I fully intend to use it. I've read Sam, and ASBO by Iain as well, just as good as this. If you're looking for bloody, violent horror, and you haven't read any of Iain's books yet, do so, you won't regret it. I certainly didn't! The ending made me gasp out loud. Took me a second to get it, but when I did, well, let's just say I thought, uh oh! Really good narrator as wel, first time I've heard him. Now, I'm going to try and get some sleep! Morning everyone! :)

Absolutely, Fabulously Terrifying.

What a story this is. Iain Rob Wright once again proves he’s a masterful storyteller and an expert of the horror genre. With Escape he plays on our fears and asks what if we shouldn’t have put our trust in the people that run escape rooms. The characters in this story are in for quite the ride as they do just that. Locked into a series of shipping containers that are buried beneath a field in the middle of nowhere with just a series of ‘games’ as their only way out. It quickly becomes clear that there’s more going on than a simple team building weekend. The author does what he does best and keeps the reader and the characters reeling from one spine chilling experience to the next. This is great as you’re never really sure who, if anyone, can really hope to find freedom again.
Aubrey Parsons is a narrator that I have had the pleasure to listen to on many occasions reading various authors' books. Each and every time he delivers with skill, talent and a flair for the emotions of each character as he brilliantly brings each to life. I doubt that there is anyone out there that could do a better job in bringing this story to life.

The usual IRW brilliance

Listened to this one on audible for the first time, but as with all other Iain Rob Wright books the story was great and kept you hanging on till the very end. Looking forward to the next Justice book

Would probably make a decent film

It's a very, very by the numbers Saw clone. Although there's the odd twist that I didn't see coming. This would probably make a decent film. Even at less than 7 hours the book does outstay its welcome a little.

I didn't really care very much about any of the characters accept Monty maybe.

The narration just isn't quite right, the guy who reads it does a good enough job of some of the characters but is completely out of character with others.

If you like horror and Saw and you have a spare credit this might just be for you.

Quite the ride

I listened straight through. Just a night of sleep I was happy to delay. I tried to turn it off and hit the hay but it was no use, I had to know. As with any review I write I am careful to omit spoilers. If you like this author, then the book is what you would expect. It is, at the time of this review, totally stand alone.
I would say it compares to his novel "Housemates" in terms of level of violence, suspense, twists, and an ending that wraps all the main elements presented in the plot. The epilogue was a tad on the "could be a second part..." though, I suppose it was sufficient to give the reader a chance to be a bit of a detective. I will likely listen again and pay better attention to certain comments and play that role. Mr. Wright is good at making a reader (or listener) think.
Narrator was very good, one voice reminded me of the voice of the actor who played Hagrid in Harry Potter movies. He had unique voices for all the characters except maybe the girls but for a male, it was still very good. Great pace and enthusiasm.
Overall, I was happy and I hope this review helps. I did pay for this and only want to help fellow buyers in making choosing a book a tad easier.

Gory!!

I don't mind the gore! I knew this was horrorish when diving in. I love me a good freaky book. I really like the plot of this one and the development. There was a few phrases that made me roll my eyes, like I'm going to "mash you up". Mash you up was said a lot. I listen to books written by authors all around the world so I know some phrases are popular where others aren't. So the storyline was decent. I finished it in only a day so I must have enjoyed it!

The narration wasn't my favorite. I would have preferred if the narrator didn't alter his voice for various characters. Some of them sounded plain awful. However, when he just read the story it was fine and didn't interfere with my enjoyment. If I'm stopping and paying specific attention to the narration, it's either out of this world or it needs work. This one needs work. However, not enough to make me avoid the narrator in the future but I don't believe I'll be seeking him out either.

Creepy story

This was a good listen. The narrator did a good job with different character voices and made them come to life. This is a story of retribution/revenge, depending on how you look at it. It was interesting to see how it played out. I love Iain Rob Wright’s book and will recommend them anyone who likes a good thriller or horror read.

Wonderfully full of twist

Not my first by this author and definitely not my last. This audio is full of twist and turns. Keeps you wondering who’s really who personality wise. Narrator does a great job with characters voices and keeps you interested just as much as story.

Loved this one!

I absolutely loved this one! How it all came together, the narrators voice, and the overall arching story line. This might have to be a must own for me. Can’t wait to see what comes next in the series!

Just Wow!!!

The plot of this thriller keeps you guessing until the end. Some of it was easy to figure out, but ultimately the conclusion was a great twist. The characters, typical of Mr. Wright, are people you kind of know in your life. They are very believable and relatable. I have read numerous books by IAW, and have never yet been disappointed.

The narrator of this audiobook was a good performer. At first I wasn't sure about the voices he chose for the characters, but in the end, he won me over. His pacing was excellent and at no point did I find it uninteresting.

Awesome horror novel that will consume you

This was a great thriller and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. A group of work colleagues do an escape room as part of team building work function set up by their boss, or so they think. Our main character, Cheryl, wasn't supposed to originally go on the activity. But the girl who was originally invited asked her to take her spot. What Cheryl thinks is her getting out and doing something different then worrying about her widowed mother turns into the scariest experience of her life. This escape room isn't like the fun ones that are so popular. This one has a sinister edge and whoever is running it knows the sins of the people originally invited. Cheryl, an innocent victim, has to help people she has never been fond of in the first place while learning deadly secrets that put her and all their lives in danger. This was such a great premise for a horror novel. And I say horror because it had me scared on what was going to happen next. And I did not see so many of twists and turns coming, especially the ending. And this book left it open for more and I definitely want to know what happens next. This narrator did a great job expressing the suspense of this novel. This book was written with UK lingo and I am in the US. So I picked up a few new words that are now part of my vocabulary. That's how into this story I got. Thriller fans, this is the book to read/listen. Just warning, it will consume you until the end and even after.

Wow!

This story a was amazing. It was scary and tense. A young woman accidentally finds herself trapped in the middle of a revenge plot. The characters are so realistic you can almost see them. The narrator really brings them to life. You won't want to miss this one.
