The fourth entry in Collins's successful crime series (after Violet Dawn, Coral Moon , and Crimson Eve ) puts familiar characters in a harrowing hostage drama when three angry men take over the local Java Joint, where the town residents have gathered for a going-away party. Kent Wicksell and his sons storm the party in an attempt to force police chief Vince Edwards to free Kent's son T.J., imprisoned for a crime they believe he did not commit. When the gunmen mercilessly kill the first hostage, Vince races against time to save the rest of his friends. Not as riveting as Crimson Eve , Collins's latest thriller is still essential reading for her fans. Recommended for public libraries. Collins lives in Idaho and California.Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
