Bonnie Kistler’s Spellbinding
New Novel

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.


“[An] exciting psychological thriller . . . . The suspenseful plot careens among various surprising twists toward a satisfying finale . . . . Kistler is a writer to watch.” – Publishers Weekly

“Absolutely spellbinding . . . a gutsy novel … but not a single misstep . . . utterly engrossing and thoroughly entertaining.” – Booklist (starred review)

The Cage starts with one of the most unique thriller setups I’ve ever read, and it keeps moving at warp speed. A must read.” – Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of A Matter of Life and Death

The Cage is a firecracker of a novel: it starts out with a bang and keeps on dazzling until its final, thrilling page.” – Jessica Barry, bestselling author of Freefall and Don’t Turn Around
