At the age of nine, she entered a restaurant and found herself in a gunman hostage situation that lasted for 36 hours.

Summary

Ten years ago, nine-year-old Freda walked into an underground restaurant and straight into a hostage situation. Those 36 hours still haunt her every move. But was she just an innocent victim manipulated by the one stranger who showed her any kindness: the gunman? A newspaper reporter is starting to pry. He says he knows things about that night. Freda must start revealing and dealing with her burden of survival. This gripping thriller grabs listeners' attention from the first introspective moments through to the explosive ending.
