    A reviewer

    Facing Down Evil is Clint van Zandt own personal experiences of being a hostage negotiator for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He gives you a look at the several, some of which are famous events that he was part of from his view. He tells you the story from the hostage negotiators view and the painful process they have to go through to get some person out of a potentially dangerous situation. So Clint basically has one thing he always want to do or better yet what all hostage negotiators want to do is to take the suspect and victims alive. Clint constantly says that the last option is to take out the suspect and that it still may not be the last option. In Sperryville, one of Clint¿s experiences, it was looking grim but Clint said that it was the last option to take him out but that was still not preferred. Clint in everyone of his hostage situations or when he¿s called in always says that they want everybody alive and that it they play it no other way always make them come out alive. Clint gives you a very through description of what he wants how he wants and when he wants it. His experiences make him what he is today and all that experience played a huge part in how he made his decisions along with all the training he had. The next thing that also put emphasis on is gaining there trust. He emphasizes this just as much as keeping them alive, because you need to get there trust in order to let them get them to stay alive. Again with Charles Leaf in Sperryville he need to gain Leaf¿s trust so that he could manipulate it to allow him and the tactical guys to get him in the position they want him to make it easier to get him and arrest him. Well I hate to say this but he never got his trust completely and things went south. Clint needs there trust so that he could put them in a position that would benefit them but make them think they had the advantage over him and without not actually giving them the edge or putting more lives on the line, sounds very nerve racking. But Clint does a good job at getting there trust most of the time. So Clint puts these two together and he can if all goes well get what he wants form the suspect and save them all hopefully at least save the victims. Well if you like exciting stories that really keep you on the edge because they all happened and they were all true then you should pick up a copy of this book and read it. It is exciting at times and boring some other times kind of like real hostage negotiations are but it keeps you interested and it gives the step by step process that people like Clint have to go through and how nerve racketing it is because of all the little thing you have to pay attention to and all the things that could go wrong which Clint constantly thinks about during a situation. So if you are interested in all of that they you should see what it¿s like negotiating with Van Zandt.
