"In this book are the stories of men who have spent nerve-wracking hours on blistering hot rooftops and in dark, freezing cold rooms...for when the clock begins ticking down to the point where an innocent life may be lost, the single well[-aimed of the police sniper becomes the shot that saves lives" GySgt Carlos Hathcock USMC, Ret.
When a desperate criminal takes innocent hostages, police SWAT teams must walk a tight-rope of fear. Patience, negotiations, and tactics often fail in the face of an irrational killer.
