Nr. 1 »New York Times«-Bestseller Marieke Nijkamps packender Roman, der zum Riesenüberraschungserfolg in den USA wurde, behandelt ein brisantes Thema und wirkt wie ein Echo aktueller Ereignisse: Amok in der Schule. 54 Minuten, die alles zerstören Es passiert nicht viel im verschlafenen Opportunity, Alabama. Wie immer hält die Direktorin in der Aula der Highschool ihre Begrüßungsrede zum neuen Schulhalbjahr. Es ist dieselbe Ansprache wie in jedem Schulhalbjahr. Währenddessen sind zwei Schüler in das Büro der Schulleitung geschlichen, um Akten zu lesen. Draußen auf dem Sportgelände trainieren fünf Schüler und ihr Coach auf der Laufbahn für die neue Leichtathletiksaison. Wie immer ist die Rede der Dirketorin exakt um zehn Uhr zu Ende. Aber heute ist alles anders. Als Schüler und Lehrer die Aula verlassen wollen, kann man die Türen nicht mehr öffnen. Einer beginnt zu schießen. Tyler greift seine Schule an und macht alle fertig, die ihm unrecht getan haben. Aus der Sicht von vier Jugendlichen entfaltet sich der Amoklauf, bis die letzte Kugel verschossen ist.
