Publisher's 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.

Not Jeffrey’s best work...

Enjoyed the storyline and while the end was not predictable I think the blasphemy throughout killed it for me...

Hostage Heroines

This has been made into a film with James Garner, don't let that put you off it!!!

A busload of deaf girls are taken hostage by three escaped criminals. The FBI are brought in to negotiate their release, but the leader of the gang doesn't follow the usual protocols.

This is a great listen, as it is really tense and Jeff Harding always does fab readthroughs.

A good story, but very long-winded.

The concept is excellent and the storyline good, but I struggled to finish this book as it laboured its way to a predictable end.
