Police Lieutenant Phoebe MacNamara found her calling at an
early age, when a violently unstable man broke into her
family's home, trapping and terrorizing them for hours.
Now she's Savannah's top hostage negotiator, who puts her
life on the line every day to defuse powder-keg
situations. Phoebe knows when to reach out and when to
pull back - and when to jump in and take action, even if
it means risking everything.
It's satisfying work - and sometimes those skills come in
handy at home when Phoebe deals with her agoraphobic
mother, still traumatized by the break-in after all these
years, and her precocious seven-year-old daughter, Carly.
It's exactly that heady combination of steely courage and
sensitivity that first attracts Duncan Swift to Phoebe.
After watching her talk one of his employees off a roof
ledge, he is committed to keeping this intriguing, take-
charge woman in his life. Phoebe's used to working solo,
but she's finding that no amount of negotiation can keep
Duncan at arm's length.
When she's grabbed by a man who throws a hood over her
head and brutally assaults her - in her own precinct
house - Phoebe can't help being deeply shaken. And when
threatening messages appear on her doorstep, she's not
just alarmed but frustrated. How do you go face-to-face
with an opponent who refuses to look you in the eye?
Now, with Duncan backing her up every step of the way, she
must establish contact with the faceless tormentor who is
determined to make her a hostage to fear - before she
becomes the final showdown.

Re: High Noon
I watched High Noon last night. I thought they stuck to the book as best as possible and cut out secondary characters where it made since so that the movie only lasted 2 hours with commercials. But with the cuts, I felt that if you hadn't read the book you wouldn't really understand the hero's relationship with his friend's family. I also thought they lightened up the story a bit by changing the outcome of the cemetary scene, as well as the scene where the heroine is attacked in the stairwell. I guess they didn't want to get too gritty with the movie.

I've not seen High Noon and I know it's been out a while. I would like to see it though I love a good western!
