A broken cable, a useless speaker, darkness. Five frightened people huddled in a crippled elevator about to take its final plunge. And the old games are played out.
A novel of shattering human revelation. It hurls five strangers - an aggressive businessman, a neurotic housewife, a pro-football star, and an alcoholic professor - into a sudden, terrifying intimacy, as they are forced to come to terms with painful truths that can save or destroy them all.
