Publisher's Summary

Somewhere on the flat Kansas landscape, a school bus carrying 8 deaf schoolgirls and their teachers brakes suddenly. Waiting are 3 ruthless men, just escaped from prison. And now, the girls are their hostages. Convicted killer Lou Handy promises that he and his crew will kill a girl each hour unless the FBI, led by negotiator Arthur Potter, cuts a deal to avoid the bloodbath.

An British accent for a story set in the US?

The story is great. Suspenseful.
A British accent is great for a story based in the UK, not in the US. Somehow, the hick or southern drawl is not very convincing when attached to a polished English accent! 😉

A Jeffery Deaver Disappointment

Would you try another book from Jeffery Deaver and/or David McCallum?

Yes I generally like Jeffery Deaver's writing

Has A Maiden's Grave turned you off from other books in this genre?

definately not, I love this genre, this was just badly done

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reading was good, but the story was just not up to the usual Deaver novels

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment
