Excellent, inspiring page turner. It is so hard to put down and such a thriller you almost have to. I loved every minute of it.
Thank you Jeffery Deaver for sharing your talent with us. ( )

Another Deaver classic. Interesting idea writing about a number of deaf hostages, cleverly done with some good misdirection and twists as expected from Deaver's novels. ( )

I started out thinking that I was going to hate this book. I was wrong, I couldn't put it down. Very unbelievable in the end, but that is why I read books, to take me away from reality. ( )

Eight vulnerable girls and their helpless teachers are forced off a school bus and held hostage. The madman who has them at gunpoint has a simple plan: one hostage an hour will die unless the demands are met. Called to the scene is Arthur Potter, the FBI's best hostage negotiator. He has a plan. But so does one of the hostages-a beautiful teacher who's willing to do anything to save the lives of her students. Now, the clock is ticking as a chilling game of cat and mouse begins.
