The Cage by Bonnie Kistler

Another locked room mystery? Sign me up! I’ve been on a kick with locked room mysteries lately, and it’s the best!

Thank you Harper books for my gifted book in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: 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.

This was a really fun read. Even though we know a lot of what happens from the get-go, I was still intrigued throughout the whole book. This definitely reads more of a legal drama, but it was really well done. It was almost the perfect mix of a locked room mystery and a legal drama all together. I don’t see that quite often in books, so this kept my attention the entire time. It’s an easy read as the ending is surprising and intriguing in every way.

5/5 Stars
