Summary

A trio of desperate convicts has hijacked a bus carrying a group of deaf and mute schoolgirls who are now being held hostage in a disused slaughterhouse. FBI agent Arthur Potter is flown in to negotiate with the men, as are local police, state troopers, politicians, and the media. Not everyone has the same agenda. And the killers will kill one innocent child an hour, on the hour, until their demands are met.

Jeffery Deaver's first large-scale thriller, sure to keep you enthralled, has been repackaged in a new series style and is now available as an abridged audio for the first time.

Critic reviews

"Deaver knits a seamless fabric of tightening tension right up to the explosive double-whammy ending." (The Times)

Abridged too far

An excellent author's careful narrative reduced to a jarring and discontinuous mish-mash by being abridged without due care and attention.
