Summary
"In the hushed quiet of early morning Manhattan, in front of the towering bronze doors of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, a young woman holds a sign that reads: HELP ME. For one FBI agent, a madman's terrified hostages, and an entire city, a long and harrowing day is about to unfold. The hostage taker's identity is unknown. But he knows who FBI agent Eve Rossi is--and everything about her past. Along with her presence, he demands five witnesses: ordinary people with some hidden connection. Defying her superiors, Eve begins a deadly dance with an adversary whose intentions are surely sinister, whose endgame is anything but certain, and whose cunning keeps him one step ahead at every turn."--

Summary
FBI hostage negotiator Eve Rossi is burned out and on leave when a shooting in Manhattan turns into a hostage situation at the iconic St. Patrick's Cathedral. Called back to work, Eve is hampered by a hostage taker who won't identify himself -- and makes only bizarre demands. Also not helping: intense pressure from the Catholic Church, the media, and the mayor. The behind-the-scenes views of St. Patrick's add an unusual element to a well-paced and increasingly tense story (and likely series debut). -- Description by Shauna Griffin
