Overview

A Mob-orchestrated prison break...an escapee flees from the bowels of the Texas Wynne Unit to the steamy Costa Rican jungles. Can justice be far behind?

Thom Christopher is an ordinary guy trying to make ends meet as a professor of psychology. One night, he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time—teaching in a prison unit on the very night that a Mob-orchestrated escape plan is going to be put into action. The education wing, deep in the bowels of the prison, is taken over by armed felons who have very little to lose, and Christopher is taken hostage. In an ironic twist of fate, the professor's rescue depends upon his friend and drinking buddy, Houston hostage negotiator Richard McClain, and McClain's finely tuned SWAT team. A carefully synchronized prison breakout, designed to result in chaos and general confusion, is punctuated by erratic, diversionary gunfire that provides the opportunity for the Mob's man to make his getaway. Lives are lost. McClain, unwilling to let the brazen escape go unchallenged, embarks on a single-minded mission to hunt down the escapee and to bring him back to justice. He picks up a trail and follows it to Costa Rica, where he tracks his Underworld prey through dense jungle terrain and up a steep mountain, where a final confrontation between the adversaries settles a score for one of them.

    A Gripping Tale

    A real 'page turner', realistically describing the feelings and reactions of a hostage as he is swept along in circumstances beyond his control. This would make a great screenplay.

    This was a good read. I didn't like the language but I figure that that's how those people actually talk. I also know some people who work for the prison and they say that that's the way it is. So I give it a thumbs up. I took off one star because of the language but that probably is the way they talk.

    I enjoyed it. It was light reading with a pretty suspenseful ending. The authors obviously have spent some time in the prison because the description of the unit was actually very accurate.

    I thought it was fast moving. The characters were developed well and I felt an empathy for many of them. The book was very suspenseful.
