Summary
Jeff Talley, a former LAPD SWAT team negotiator takes a job as a police chief in a small Southern California town after a hostage situation gone bad results in recurring nightmares for him. Now, three small time punks go on the run after a grocery store robbery and killing in Talley's town. Soon the deputies have surrounded the house where the inept robbers have taken a man and his two children hostage. Talley's worst nightmare has returned as he must negotiate for the hostage's lives until the county sheriff's SWAT team arrives. Plus the house belongs to a white collar criminal who launders money for La Cosa Nostra
