Hostage Taker by Stefanie Pintoff is an electrifying thriller. Eve Rossi is an FBI agent, and she leads a secret division in the FBI that uses ex-convicts and their talents to solve some of the worst crimes. Someone takes multiple hostages hostage in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan, and specifically says he will only speak with Eve. He also demands for five witnesses to be brought to the scene. They have a hidden connection, but it is unknown. With her band of ex-convicts, it is up to Eve and the men to figure out who the hostage taker is, and to save as many people as possible.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel, but it exceeded my expectations. It kept my interest, and I had to keep reading in order to find out what happened next. Normally I’m one who can guess twists, but the ending of this novel surprised me.
