Jafar Shakarchi, orphaned during the 1991 bombing of Baghdad, is sent to live with relatives in the United States carrying a latent desire for revenge. Despite an excellent education, a wonderful girl friend, and a good job, several traumatic events lead him to commit several acts of terrorism. While visiting an arms dealer he learns about a group of terrorists planning another 9/11. He finds this unacceptable, and unaware a Homeland Security group is investigating him, he calls the FBI hot-line using an alias. When Shakarchi learns they know his true identity, he decides he must take part in a bloody raid of the terrorist’s warehouse hideout to locate and destroy evidence he fears might implicate him.

ForeWord Reviews

In a topical story involving the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and a group of Middle Eastern terrorists in the US, Welsh presents a carefully plotted, winding tale of improbable federal agents and an equally improbable potential terrorist who may have simply too much to lose.
