About this title


Special Agent John Banish is embroiled in a deadly battle of wits with Glenn Ables, a cunning, twisted fugitive, during a standoff confrontation between law enforcement and the criminal, barricaded with his family in a secluded Montana cabin. A first novel. 100,000 first printing. $100,000 ad/promo.

From the Publisher:

A crisis has exploded on an isolated Montana mountaintop: when a local sheriff is mistakenly ordered to serve an eviction notice to town recluse Glenn Ables, a routine Monday morning turns into an unimaginable catastrophe. Ables, a notorious federal fugitive wanted for illegal firearms trafficking, responds to the notice by shooting two policemen and barricading his family inside his cabin atop Paradise Ridge. The law descends in force as local police officials, Montana State Troopers, National Guard helicopters, a United States Marshals Special Operations Group, and the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team converge on Paradise Ridge. When state-of -the-art surveillance technology fails to prevent the murder of a federal marshal, the FBI recalls from operational exile tis ranking veteran crisis manager: a brilliant but unstable negotiator named John T. Banish. As casualties mount on both sides, Paradise Ridge becomes a tinderbox. Banish must pry a heavily armed, ruthlessly cunning criminal out of hiding while, at the foot of the mountain, a massive gathering of Ables's outraged supporters threatens to turn into a full-scale riot. More than a high-stakes face-off between a lawbreaker and the law, what takes place over the course of nine agonizing days in Montana is a contest of wills and wits as intensely personal as The Fugitive or The Hunt For Red October. One of this year's most talked-about novels, soon to be a major motion picture, The Standoff grabs you on page one and simply cannot be put down. This is a remarkable fiction debut -- a battle that no one dares win; a tactical and psychological duel more harrowing than anything you have ever experienced.
