At school the morning bell rings. The children are cooperative and eager to help in preparation for the inspector. Without warning their peace is shattered by the appearance at the window of a grotesquely masked figure. It is the start of a forty-eight-hour ordeal of terror for Sally Jones and her small band of pupils, as they are kidnapped by a gang of sinister and sadistic men asking for a cool million dollars ransom for their victims. Sally's first concern is to protect and comfort the children, but as their nightmare continues she becomes determined to escape and then, together with the children, to destroy.

WORST BOOK EVER!!! We were made to read this at school, it is so boring and horribly violent. I wish I never read it and one star is to high for this book review.
