In this retrospective Thriller Short, bestselling writer Raelynn Hillhouse explores an incident from her character Stella's past. Two weeks after American hostages were seized in Iran in 1979, the US embassy in Pakistan is overrun by Islamic extremists, entangling Stella in a complex struggle that would introduce America to the violent intentions of these political terrorists. Caught in the embassy with the others, Stella begins to work on an escape plan. But leaving an embassy surrounded by hundreds of angry protesters in broad daylight seems impossible. To pull it off, Stella will have to use all of her ingenuity, a disguise and the help of a mysterious congressman.
