Publisher's Summary

As a lovely weekend approaches on the Yale campus it appears that a number of students - including the sons of both the secretary of the army and newest Supreme Court justice - may have gone missing. Kidnapping? Terrorism? The authorities aren't sure. But the high-profile disappearances draw the attention of the CIA...

and the FBI's vaunted Hostage Rescue Team. Attention quickly focuses on the fortress-like tomb of one of Yale's secret societies. Suspended Boulder police detective Sam Purdy soon finds himself in New Haven, where he is quickly snared by an unlikely pair of Feds: FBI agent Christopher Poe and CIA analyst Deirdre Drake.
Sam, Poe, and Dee join together, desperately trying to solve the riddle of what is going on inside the windowless stone tomb on the edge of campus. The clock is pounding in their ears. The unknown enemy is playing by no known rules...is making no demands...is refusing to communicate with the hostage negotiator...is somehow anticipating every FBI move...is completely unconcerned about getting away...

And...is sending students, one by one, out of the building's front door to die.

    "Excellent Book"

    I like the story, and the detail used to develope the characters. The narrator used nice tone inflections to give each character life in the story. Some of the comments during the interaction made me laugh.
    Very entertaining indeed.

    "A boring soap opera!"

    Not even Dick Hill's great voice could help this boring soap opera! Don't waste your money or time on this book.
    The story is disjointed and meandering...made no sense.

    "Enjoyed the whole book!"

    I have either read or listened to all of Stephen White's books and this is one of the best. It held my interest to the end.

    "Excellent"

    We are big fans of Stephen White, but my husband and I agree this was one of our favorites. It was nice to have the story focused on Sam.
