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 elevator door opens, two women are found inside, one dead from a gunshot, the other alive. Suicide or murder? It doesn’t get better than this superb thriller with tripwire suspense, intrigue, and smart women – set in the corridors of international high fashion. If you liked The Firm, you will love The Cage.” – Michael Elias, author of You Can Go Home How

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

“From its audacious opening scene to its wallop of an ending, The Cage is a delicious thrill-ride of breakneck twists and turns, underpinned by complex characters ensnared in risky relationships. Evoking Grisham and Highsmith, Bonnie Kistler is a masterful plate-spinner of plot, deftly weaving together the worlds of fashion, high finance and white-shoe law to reveal their seamiest secrets and shared underbellies, all via characters who live, breathe, and scare the hell out of us on every page.” – Cassidy Lucas, author of Santa Monica
