I'm always craving a fast-paced psychological thriller, and this book did the job. The plotline is incredible and moving, and takes you in directions you wouldn't expect. I'm pretty hard to impress when it comes to mystery suspense/thrillers, so I'm glad this book didn't disappoint. I don't think the ending is one you would really expect right off the bat, and a lot of mystery books tend to make that fatal mistake. I loved the different character point of views, because I believe they add a layer of depth to the story. Being able to see the plot unfold from various perspectives really elevated this book to a new level. The viewpoint of the gunman is my personal favorite, because it sort of establishes a morally grey ground where you're forced to view from the perspective of someone who is so evil. The basic plot of the story is that a few strangers stop in a local coffee shop and become hostages to a gunman. If you're planning on reading this book, I don't advise you to know any more than that. This is the kind of book where you have to go in not knowing much at all.
