Hostage Taker by Stefanie Pintoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Surprised that this is the first of a series, because the group of FBI people involved have worked on cases before. The main character, Eve Rossi, is a profiler who works as a hostage negotiator. While she's on bereavement leave for the death of her step-father, a CIA agent, someone takes hostages at St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC, right before the lighting of the famous Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. Eve calls in her ragtag crew to help, and they try to save the hostages, while taking out the bad guys. Interesting read, and it didn't go where I expected, which is always good! A little too much buildup in this book, but I'm assuming the next book will be better without all that extra info.
