Terminal Rage, by A.M. Khalifa

The hero of this novel is Alex, who had been an FBI hostage negotiator until he quit because a case went awry. That part was poorly done, as there's nothing about the description of the bad situation to justify Alex quitting over it. Similarly, Alex's demeanor certain doesn't seem like what one would expect of a cool headed hostage negotiator. So that was a problem.

Also a problem was why Alex was in this story at all (yes I realize he's the hero): someone took over a New York building and demanded Alex as the negotiator. Even at the end of the novel I couldn't tell you why.

Ignoring those kinds of issues, the book was fairly interesting. There were a few plot twists and they worked pretty well.
