As a lovely weekend approaches on the Yale campus it appears that a number of students—including the sons of both the secretary of the army and newest Supreme Court justice—may have gone missing. Kidnapping? Terrorism? The authorities aren’t sure. But the high-profile disappearances draw the attention of the CIA and the FBI’s vaunted Hostage Rescue Team. Attention quickly focuses on the fortresslike tomb of one of Yale’s oldest secret societies. Suspended Boulder police detective Sam Purdy soon finds himself in New Haven, where he is suddenly snared by an unlikely pair of Feds: FBI agent Christopher Poe and CIA analyst Deirdre Drake. When an unknown enemy starts releasing hostages, one by one, out of the building’s front door to die, Sam, Poe, and Dee join together, desperately trying to solve the riddle of what is going on inside the windowless stone tomb on the edge of campus. In The Siege, New York Times bestselling author Stephen White delivers a pulse-pounding thriller that begs the questions: What if the next terrorist threat has a different set of rules that exploits weaknesses we never knew we had? How should we respond? And what happens when one of us is asked to make an unimaginable sacrifice to protect our neighbors? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felicia | 2/16/2014

    " The one drawback on this book is that it used too many acronyms and not all of them were explained but that's to be expected when the CIA, FBI, DHS, HRT, etc., are involved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timisnyder Snyder | 2/5/2014

    " Dr. Alan Gregory was not part of this book. The book was more politcal than a murder mystery, but enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cris | 2/2/2014

    " This is the second book I've read by this author. Both were very good. I also enjoy that this is written above the usual reading level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/28/2014

    " First book I have read by White and I really enjoyed it. He writes a series but this book is a stand alone even though it does use some of his recurring characters. Kept me guessing though most of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 1/24/2014

    " My first Stephen White book and I really liked it. I'll have to give some of his other books a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/21/2014

    " It took a while for this book to latch on, the main reason being that everything is such a big, big secret that you're left removed from the story. I realize it's a mystery/suspense but even the details that the main character knows is kept from you, the reader. The author just doesn't tell you enough for you to keep interested. That's not how I like to be told a story and it's frustrating, to say the least. It finally picks up near the last quarter of the book enough to warrant it 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charisse | 1/16/2014

    " AMAZING. This was so good!!! Fantastic character development - scary believeable events - I didn't want to put the book down!!! Great novel... Thanks Jeanette!!! I have to look for more of his books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 1/16/2014

    " it was a good read, but i really miss dr G :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Buckley | 12/29/2013

    " I didn't realize this was part of a series, but I'm glad I found it. Now I have to go back and read the first 16. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dj | 12/21/2013

    " definitely in this years top ten, a top-drawer thriller, anxious to read more from white. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judee | 12/9/2013

    " Amazing, scary, provocative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy Cox | 11/27/2013

    " Great fast pace Read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luckngrace | 11/17/2013

    " I like all the Alan Gregory books, but he hardly appeared in this one at all. I found this book disturbingly possible in these dangerous times. I don't recommend reading it if you're about to send a child off to college. Provides much food for thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 8/25/2013

    " I'm a huge fan of Stephen White. I especially enjoy the books featuring Dr. Alan Gregory, a Boulder therapist. This book includes Gregory's close friend Sam Purdy, and is set in Miami and New Haven. Thus far it's very gripping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luan | 11/4/2012

    " I listened to this book on tape. I love the way the guy does Sam Purdy, who figures predominantly in this book along with a couple of FBI types. I love the way White writes and this was an enjoyable although not quite riveting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 8/31/2012

    " Kidnapping thriller set at Yale. One POV of the story is completely irrelevant, a red herring I suppose. In the beginning the different POVs are on different timelines, which is disconcerting, but they come together after a while. No literary awards here, but a lot of ideas to consider. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 2/3/2012

    " Stephen White often changes his main characters, and he pulls it off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 12/23/2011

    " One of my favorite authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 10/30/2011

    " Loved the suspense. Little tricky keeping plotlines straight until they merged, but that was part of the fun. Can't wait to read more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 10/8/2011

    " Very entertaining, great read until the end. I was disappointed in the ending and social preachiness of the resolution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Rosinski | 7/17/2011

    " Jack thought it was a bit violent but I like Stephen White's books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyson | 4/9/2011

    " Very gripping. I don't read many thrillers because I'm a wimp and scare easy, but I loved this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 4/6/2011

    " White just doesn't disappoint. I love reading these characters, and was thrilled to have a novel dedicated to the character of Sam Purdy. This is really fine crime/thriller writing; it could happen tomorrow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/3/2011

    " My first Stephen White book and I really liked it. I'll have to give some of his other books a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/22/2011

    " As a Stephen White fan I enjoyed this book. I was enthralled with the story although I found it important to be mindful of the time given at the beginning of every chapter as the story was not told in chronological order. I thought the ending was weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/9/2011

    " For Mystery indulgence, I always go with Stephen White "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette | 12/12/2010

    " This book really held my attention and my interest with the unique plot playing out at the Yale campus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cris | 11/25/2010

    " This is the second book I've read by this author. Both were very good. I also enjoy that this is written above the usual reading level. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 11/19/2010

    " I'm not sure if it was me or the book, but I found this just OK. I never was really invested in the characters. Then the end was very preaching. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darlene | 11/15/2010

    " Slow read for me, and maybe it is just me. I am not finding much to pique my interest lately. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 11/5/2010

    " just Sam Purdy, in part, of the usual cast. Time shifts are a little confusing, but the novel is well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 11/2/2010

    " This book had me up until the end. The end, while interesting, was unfulfilling, and felt like he had written himself into a corner and found an okay way out. The rest of it, however, is really well done and kept my interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 10/17/2010

    " Excellent novel. Very suspenseful. Can't wait to read more by Stephen White. "

    " Very Interesting premise...just fell a little short for me. "
