Hostage

Hostage Cover

 

 

Author's Note

Some days I feel trapped. You know that feeling? All the big and small events in your life seem beyond your control — you become a victim of noisy neighbors, incompetent clerks, and slow-motion traffic. You are held hostage by all the forces in your life that you can't control. So is Jeff Talley, the main character of my new suspense thriller, Hostage, only his problems are a lot bigger than clerks and cars. He's sweating through a crisis few of us — thankfully — will ever know: innocents held at gunpoint by trapped killers, the mob, the dissolution of his own life, and a couple of matched homicidal maniacs doing a slow meltdown toward murder. So just as we can't control the events in our lives, Jeff Talley is swept along by these events in his. Will he survive? Perhaps, and maybe by doing so he will be all the stronger for the struggle. Maybe we will, too.

Three suspects have barricaded themselves in a house. They have three hostages. Jeff Talley has fourteen hours to save them...and himself.

Enjoy the book.

"Review" by , "The title of Crais's fiery third thriller...can refer not just to the two sets of innocents held at gunpoint in the story but to the reader, who will be wired tight to the book....Thriller vets will have seen a lot of this before, but every virtuoso is allowed variations on a theme, and Crais, with his record and with the smart suspense offered here, has proven himself nothing less."
