Publisher's Summary

TV reporter Tiel McCoy is driving down Interstate 20 on her way to New Mexico for a well-earned vacation. But her itinerary is rewritten when she hears on the radio that the teenage daughter of a well-known Fort Worth multi-millionaire has been kidnapped - at least, that's the official report. In truth, she is pregnant and has run away with her boyfriend. After calling her editor, Tiel abandons her holiday plans in favor of pursuing the story.During an innocuous visit to a convenience store in Rojo Flats, Tiel gets up close and personal with the barrel of a gun, two desperate young lovers, and the scoop of a lifetime.In the electrifying standoff that follows, she learns why the two young runaways fear the wealthy father of one of them even more than the FBI...and why she must defend them against a world bent on their destruction.Poignant and riveting, Standoff is suspense at its best, as only Sandra Brown can create it.

Captivating read

If you liked movies such as "Lifeboat", or "12 Angry Men", where everything takes place in one location, then you'll enjoy this one.
Standoff is set inside a Convenience Store during a botched robbery.
The characters who find themselves hostages, in some way are stereotypes, but this aids your understanding of what each is liable to do under stress. Ironically you find yourself simpathetic to the cause of the robbers.
The narrator's accents/voices for each character is also well defined and is easy to follow. The story holds you with new revelations appearing at regular intervals. The journey will not disappoint you.

Minus Stars if Possible

This may be the worst audio-book of all time.
The story line is dumb, the characters are stupid and listening to it probably kills brains cells. The narrator is okay but should have checked pronunciations

I've read/listened to books that I disliked so much, I wanted to slam them into a wall. This one makes me feel that way but I also want to burn down the wall, campaign to make sure some folks never get published and, while I'm at it, never get near a computer or typewriter.

Did I tell you I hated this book!?
