AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When guests at a ski lodge in Utah are taken hostage by a group of mercenaries, Jesse Parker, who has left Steamboat Springs to try to salvage his career after a horrific skiing accident, discovers he's in the right place at the right time.

'With a high-profile senator one of the hostages, the White House and FBI are notified and Special Agent Denton Colby is sent to Utah to negotiate the ransom with the assassins. But the head of the hostage-takers is playing a dangerous game. As his demands become more erratic, and half the hostages are killed, Colby suspects that money may not be the only thing they're after.

'Jesse has remained undetected by the captors and, with the help of a female ex-Marine, is able to formulate a plan that might just stop these murderous terrorists in their tracks...' (From the publisher's website.)
