Then Kyle Kirby's voice rumbles through the walkie-talkie to say she is buried with a dwindling oxygen supply. But Cass McBride is no one's victim - she has looks, money, and brains. She knows that if Kyle wants to talk, then he must want something. And her salesman father taught her well: when someone wants something, there's a deal to be made.
Cass can save herself if she can keep Kyle talking, can discover what he wants - if she can make the deal. The clock is ticking. The game is on.

"It is a thrilling, one-sitting read that they won't be able to put down." (School Library Journal)
Thinker Meets Explorer
This was one of the first books I listened to for book club at Audible, and surprisingly I couldn't put it down. (I finished it on one car ride back to my family home.) Actually make that a car ride, trip to the grocery store, and late-night finish once I was home. I wanted to find out about what happened to Cass and, more importantly, why.
So much so that I didn't even notice the supermarket stock man who offered me a shopping cart (after my handheld basket was overflowing). Good thing because I had more time to listen - and shop - after that!
Outstanding story telling and narration. I never saw the end coming. What a story! Unforgettable!
Excellent writing and narration. A haunting psychological drama. I listened from start to finish, lost an hour of sleep without thinking. It makes you wonder how you, or your child, would survive a similar situation.
