is a thrilling novel about victims. The newspapers talk about hijackings
and we forget sometimes that there are real individual people involved
in the hijacking. In this book we have time to think about Kate, the bus
driver, who was taking her uncle's place driving 5-year-olds to camp. We
have time to think about Miro, the young revolutionary, who knows no other
way of life than to create scenes that the media will report on. He's been
an orphan with hand to mouth existence. He's convinced that the cause --
the fate of the refugees -- is more important than any one life, including
his won. Then there's Ben, the son of the General charged with expediting
the hijack resolution. When Ben is used by his dad -- is his life worth
anymore than Miro's?
