Holdup-It was just another ordinary Saturday night for the teens working at Burger Heaven until everything changed in an instant. Suddenly, there were guns drawn, a quick exit denied, and threats made. And when the evening ended, neither the robbers’ nor the hostages’ lives would ever be the same. Holdup is a novel in four parts. Parts One and Two explore each person’s life before they are all thrown together in this most unexpected and frightening evening. Part Three allows the reader to live through the experience of the robbery itself, and Part Four reveals the unexpected and surprising effects of that night’s chance encounter one year later .
