Came across this crime thriller on the "recently reviewed" page. I found it to be really good. New York's St. Patrick Cathedral at Christmas time was an interesting setting; the hostage situation kept me engaged; and I liked the hostage negotiator, Eve, and her team of ex-cons. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

Unlike the reviewer below, I thought this was an exciting, cliff-hanging type book. I'm reading everything I can find by this author.

I'm sure there are many who will enjoy this book, even though the author's mores, as in social mores, are completely foreign to me, possibly raised on a culture of pure TV and entertainment? The premise is so completely faulty, which only becomes apparent at the end, and collapses the entire premise. Anyone can be turned into a mass murder so very easily? Perhaps among the crowd this author associates with?
