Ron P. Whittington's Second Strike captures the pathos of the country in the days after the terrorist strike through the eyes of Parker Glynn, a successful businessman who becomes an accidental spy in the fight against terrorism. Americans are gripped in fear and deep sadness in the aftermath of the attack, with images of the deaths of nearly 3,000 citizens and the destruction of the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and a scorched field in Pennsylvania seared into their psyche through the 24-hour news cycle. For Glynn, a corporate entrepreneur who lost his wife and daughter in the attack, it has brought a clash of emotions: tremendous sadness at his personal loss, guilt over his infidelity and the realization that his mistress had a hidden connection to the men who staged the dramatic terrorist assault. Glynn flees from New York City to escape his memories, traveling south also the east coast until he reaches northeast Florida. At the same time Adham Morqos, a Saudi who lost his own wife and child in an Israeli bomb blast years before, is leading a second strike terror cell on a murderous course through the Caribbean isles to the Florida coast. When Glynn inadvertently uncovers the cell's ingenious plot to kill thousands of young people, an attack that will prove no city is beyond Al-Qaeda s reach, fate offers him one final chance at revenge and redemption. The sequel to the novel, Doppelganged, was released in 2012.
