From the minds behind the series, this is the story of Lumon Industries employee Margaret 'Peg' Kincaid. When Peg gets hired at Lumon, she undergoes Severance, a surgical procedure pitched by the company as an effortless way to separate her personal and work lives. Everyone has their reasons for wanting the easy solution Severance promises, but when Peg realises that not all is as it seems at the company, she uncovers a reality that's far worse than the problems she wanted to escape. At the heart of this story, Peg's shocking confession reveals the darkest side of corporate America. It raises a chilling question: How far will Lumon Industries go to protect its secrets?


Released in line with the well-received TV series, this book doesn’t shed too much light on what we already know, except that one crucial thing - a truck crash that happens to a competitor at the same time as one of the data refinement processes is complete. Is it a coincidence or are Lumon up to no good? I think we know the answer to that, and at this point we also know that there were no answers in the first series of the show… so thank goodness there is a second!

Rating: 4 / 5
