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.

In Kansas, fleeing killers kidnap a bus with deaf girls and hole up in a slaughterhouse. They kill one girl and threaten to kill the rest if their demands are not met. The 12-hour siege by the FBI becomes a media circus, exploited by politicians and competing police departments. By the author of Playing for Sleep.
