Summary
Somewhere underground, in New York's subway system, just outside the Pelham Station, a gang of armed men hijack a train, threatening to kill one hostage per minute unless their demands are met. Forced to stall these unknown assailants until a ransom is delivered or a rescue is made, transit chief Lt. Garber must ad-lib, bully, con and shrewdly outmaneuver one of the craftiest and cruelest villains in a battle of wits that will either end heroically or tragically
