Publisher's Summary

Combining the propulsive narrative drive of The Firm with the psychological complexity of The Silent Patient, a gripping and original thriller about two professional women—colleagues at an international fashion conglomerate—who enter an elevator together...but only one is alive when they reach the ground floor.

On a cold, misty Sunday night, two women are alone in the offices of fashion conglomerate Claudine de Martineau International. One is the company’s human resources director. Impeccably dressed and perfectly coiffed, she sits at her desk and stares somberly out the window. Down the hall, her colleague, one of the company’s lawyers, is buried under a pile of paperwork, frantically rushing to finish. 

Leaving at the same time, the two women, each preoccupied by her own thoughts, enter the elevator that will take them down from the 30th floor.

When they arrive at the lobby, one of the women is dead. Was it murder or suicide?

An incredibly original novel that turns the office thriller on its head, The Cage is a wild ride that begins with a bang and picks up speed as it races to its dramatic end.

Meh

I thought this one had promise and decided to take a chance. I didn’t like it. Characters were unlikable and forgettable. I enjoyed the last 2 minutes of the book but not enough to recommend it.

Good plot concept

Very tricky situation ….any mystery involving an elevator is kinda creepy. The only thing is halfway through the book more names / characters were involved so it got confusing . I listen while doing other things so that could be the reason as well

Slow developing story .

To be clear , I lost interest After about an hour or so and didn’t finish it. It just seems like there was way too much time spent in background info but came across as words to fill pages… like writing a school report ..lol. I’ll admit I didn’t get to the end but I lost interest and moved on to something else.

Wow! Lots going on in this story!

There was so much going on. I had to rewind quite a few times to keep up with the story. I got bored in a few spots with the female narration but overall I think it was a decent book. I think it would make a better movie.

Trash

The title description made this sound like a domestic thriller. Instead it's a trashy. cartoonish story about sex trafficking with buffoonish villains and a clueless heroine. I couldn't finish it.

Bad

Boring and ridiculous. Don't waste your time. Predictable. The main character is not likable. Waste of money.

Saw a couple things coming but all in all I really enjoyed this book. Do no be deterred by any crappy reviews. Not your typical psyc thriller, unexpected and good.
