The Elevator

Claire Cooper

This is where it ends. She watches me, thinking she’s won. Thinking she has me cornered. She’s wrong. When the doors open, only one of us will walk out. And though she doesn’t know it yet, that person will be me.

I moved halfway around the world to start again where no one would know what I was hiding. I’m lonely, but I’m safe.

But secrets have a way of following you.

When I step into the elevator that sweltering morning, I barely notice the woman standing next to me. She seems out of place, with her floaty linen clothes in a building full of suits. But that’s none of my business.

A minute later, there’s a sudden jerk. The elevator stops. The lights go out.

We’re trapped.

The other woman’s face is deathly pale. She’s breathing noisily, clearly panicking. As we sit slumped against the mirrored walls, we start talking to try and keep calm.

Neither of us expected to be stuck here today.

Neither of us thought we’d share our darkest secrets, safe in the knowledge we’d never see each other again.

Neither of us knew that we’re not strangers.

And when the truth comes out, there’ll be nowhere to hide… but who will survive?

A brilliantly twisty ride from start to finish, that will have you gasping out loud at the twists. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, Freida McFadden and Claire McGowan.
