SETTLING THE BOOKS

A rare book merchant uses the reading of his will to seal five heirs, who he perceived to have wronged him, into an airtight panic room, their only chance of escape is by solving the mystery contained in the thousand year old book, 'The Castilian Cypher', and if that wasn't enough of a ticking clock, the bookseller's voice returns at intervals to extract a confession from an heir before causing their death.
