“You will all remain seated. Anyone who tries to get up, or even moves, will be shot.

There will be no further warning. If you move you will be killed…”

Four men seize a New York City subway train and hold its passengers hostage. The identities of the hijackers are unknown. Their demands seem impossible. Their threats are real. Their escape would seem inconceivable. Only one thing is certain: they aren’t stopping for anything.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 11/13/2010

    " This was a well-written, easy to read book. I enjoyed it; believable characters, exciting storyline, very clever plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pipsa | 8/23/2010

    " I bought this book from airport just to have something to read in the plane. Haven't seen the movie and I doubt that I will after reading this. Book was ok but nothing special about it. It was well written but the story was just average. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eliza | 6/17/2010

    " This was a good thriller, if a little predictable. I was very disappointed by the ending, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devon | 5/29/2010

    " This was a good quick read. It was almost like the book turned the pages itself. At points the excitement was out of control just like the train itself. I definitely recommend this book if you can handle a little sexism with a bit of racism dashed in there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christian and Amy | 5/7/2010

    " Chris - Good book, written in the 70's. Good character development, but so much of it is thoughts from the bounching viewpoints of the characters, I'm curious what the movie is like, I'll have to check it out! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danny | 11/8/2009

    " A great book. I finished it very quickly, and was always interested in reading more. I personally liked the characters, and found it interesting to see the same event from different view points. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thom | 10/13/2009

    " This belongs on the list: "Sorry I read it before the movie came out even if they both sucked eggs" What a silly waste of time. Fluffy ending for an intriguing premise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 10/5/2009

    " I was not very impressed with this book. It seemed like the author was using each character to impose his racist beliefs. Story line was predictable at best.
