This story quickly grabbed me with its captivating start and descriptive details.
As she was running late for work, Cordelia somehow gets stuck in an elevator….with a strange voice. Could it be her imagination running wild? Or perhaps she was just going mad? Or was it really a ghost or a vengeful spirit? Who the hell knows, but it was creepy and mysterious.
The voice was named Jeremy, and he asked her weird questions, like “would you save someone?” What was even stranger was that the voice claimed he was actually helping her, saving her. Really? It was just getting creepier and creepier.
This story was all about mind games and deep ponderings (well, what else are you gonna do in an elevator, right?) I’ll admit that the ending was a bit of a head-scratcher, but, then again, that may have been the entire premise of this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s snarky and witty voice. It’s an engaging thriller.
My rating: 4 stars
