Three Hours

Front Cover
Thorpe, Charnwood, 2020 - Large type books - 414 pages
Three hours is 180 minutes or 10,800 seconds. It is a morning's lessons, a dress rehearsal of MACBETH, a snowy trek through the woods. It is an eternity waiting for news. Or a countdown to something terrible. It is 180 minutes to discover who you will die for and what men will kill for. In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather, desperate for news. In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.
