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.

"Hey Doc"

Would you listen to Standoff again? Why?

I have a few times. Sexy doctor


What did you like best about this story?

good old fashion don't give up


What about Enid Graham’s performance did you like?

She brought this short, not the usual, sandra brown story to real life. It was a real shame Enid Graham did not do more of S.B. recordings...she had a way with a story. Another reader, Jenna Stern also was not used as much.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I always do.


Any additional comments?

I have most of S.B. recordings, ALL of Victor Selzack readings...yum. White Hot is not on audible full length, what a great shame.
