In Britain, a young gunman takes several hostages in a nursery school. His reasons for doing so are even more confusing when he requests to only speak to a secret servant agent from the accounting department. What's his purpose and reasoning for taking hostages slowly unfolds.

Oh my. Unfortunately, I resorted back to my old ways and kept reading when I wasn't enjoying. (The challenges made me do it.) Anyway, I have nothing positive to say about this book, except for its premise, so I think I'm going to pass on saying anything at all. For this book and this time, I don't feel it's necessary. (2/5)

A very interesting book reviewed for Mystery Scene. Think Ian McEwan remixed with Spooks.
