"As he was rising, I saw Brian raise the loaded Glock .40 pistol towards the approaching SWAT officers. I wanted to scream for him to stop; I knew he was about to fulfill his ultimate goal." What do you say to prevent someone from committing "suicide-by-cop"? Or has a gun pointed at a hostage? Or an armed man who has barricaded himself in a hotel room? Or a despondent woman who is threatening to kill herself? Veteran police negotiator Lieutenant Dennis Flynn spent nearly two decades responding to more than 1,000 of these and other high-intensity incidents with the Crisis Negotiations Team in Las Vegas, Nevada. His goal: Bring 'em out alive! This audiobook is a behind-the-scenes view of life-and-death situations that police negotiators face, and how they were resolved one way or the other under the bright lights and glitter of Sin City.
