Storyline

Dr. Ellen Sanders, a premiere surgeon, is thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle. Ellen and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer, whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer, an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine, a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family's life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian, her secretive daughter Morgan and her not-so-innocent son Jake. In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more ... Written by CBS

Hooked on hostages
24 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite reading some bad reviews on here me and my husband decided to watch the series after seeing it advertised - and I am very glad we did! We loved every bit of it and got completely hooked from start to finish.

Both of us are unsure as to why the series has received such bad reviews. Our only negative is that because it was so gripping we watched the entire series in just three days!

I most definitely recommend watching this, I even registered an account to tell people so :- ) I hope it gets renewed although sadly I am not sure it can be.
