When an American real estate company owned by an Arabic consortium chooses the small town of Bridgewater to house a mosque that will be an international showpiece of Islam, community residents do not know how to react.
Dan Howard, a freelance photographer, is one of those who are worried. His daughter, Beth, has become friends with Reza Husain, a Muslim. The relationship seems innocent enough, but he has no idea that she is about to become a pawn in a vicious power struggle between two ideologies.
The town's Muslims and Christians seem to be coexisting but then Reza's father, Mr. Husain, is found murdered. As the days go by without an arrest, the media clamors for more details and the town slips deeper into disarray.
Acting Police Chief Bill Lacy asks Reza to investigate his father's death. No one knows it, but the mosque will be the site of a final showdown, and the lives of Bridgewater's residents will be changed forever.
Taking readers from the sands of Saudi Arabia, to the streets of Paris to a rural, small town, Muslim Fears is a murder mystery that is both timely and provocative.
