A day in the life of an FBI hostage release negotiator. Three escaped convicts hijack a bus carrying eight deaf girls and their two teachers, and threaten to kill one girl an hour unless their demands are met. As the clock ticks a brilliant battle of wits ensues. This exceptional thriller has been thoroughly researched; the hostage-taking is described in riveting detail, and the world of the deaf portrayed is totally convincing.
