Overview
A cell phone awakens a young mother in a Palestinian refugee camp. The simple message, ?It is time,? jolts her awake. Dressing in clothes that once belonged to her dead husband, she asks her mother to watch her young son. Upon arriving at the mosque she meets the man who had called. He takes her to two other men who will transport her, and the bomb she will wear, to the proper destination?the West Bank city of Ariel. A story of international terrorism and intrigue unfolds across the globe. Special agents and covert operatives track clues to pinpoint the probability of an attack that will dwarf previous attempts to strike where it hurts the most.

A Fantastic Novel  Dec 26, 2009
This is one of the best written Christian novels that I have read. I admit that I am one of those readers who reads the ending first. Even knowing the ending, I found this book riveting and very hard to put down. The authors did a good job of weaving suspense and the Gospel throughout the book. I usually don't read suspense novels, but this one got me addicted. I would highly recommend anyone who enjoys suspense novels to read this one. I am looking forward to reading more books by these authors!
 
Good Christian Fiction  Oct 24, 2008
If you are looking for a good Christian novel with lots of action and a good storyline, this book is for you. Reminded me of the early novels of Tom Clancy. Excellent Christian values are placed in the right spots. I really enjoyed reading this book!!
 
Great Thriller about Terrorism  Mar 4, 2008
I have to say I really liked this book. This book is action-packed and easy to get through. The many characters and various plots will make it a quick and enjoyable read. Looking back three months, it's hard to remember everything about the book (I read it last November). But the main plot of the book concerns a terrorist plot against the United States. I don't want to give too much away, but two of the main protagonists are Bible professor, Greg Hanson and FBI agent, Jillian Foster. The characters are described very well and they develop as the book progresses, but it was a little hard to believe the FBI would allow a Bible professor so much access to classified information. This is one reason I was not able to give the book 5 out of 5 stars. Throughout the book, I felt that many things were a little too farfetched even though it was a fictional book. Another instance was when someone overhears two terrorist speaking about their plan. Most likely they weren't speaking in English, but it seemed that the American understood what they were saying. Not a big issue, but something that was a little unbelievable.
Also, sometimes the dialog felt a little unrealistic. I don't read a lot of Christian fiction so I am not sure if this is usual for the genre, but sometimes the scenes with Greg and Jillian talking about Christianity felt forced and unnatural.
Finally, I really liked the character of Ibrahim al-Samarri. The author made him feel really personable and human. But this could also be considered a fault against the book depending upon how you look at it. He was supposed to be the "villain," but throughout the book, I felt for him and I could hardly believe he was doing the things he was doing. This is probably intentional by the author and I applaud him for making a terrorist so human and real (if that was his intention). The author makes you almost want to root for him.
All in all, I really enjoyed the book despite having to suspend my belief in reality quite often. I guess in the end you have to have to say who cares if a Bible professor can work with the FBI despite no classification access. It's fiction. If you enjoy thriller books about terrorism, then I think you will like this book. I also recently read David Baldacci's "The Camel Club" and they were quite similar so if you like Baldacci's books, then I believe you will enjoy this one. I look forward to the next two books in the trilogy.
 
Page-turner of a Middle East Thriller  Jan 10, 2008
Terrorist messages hidden in plain sight on the Web--how current; how chilling! This page-turner has believable characters, with motives well matched to their actions. Location details and understanding of Arab-Israeli, Islamic-Western conflicts enhance reader understanding--while he or she enjoys a really fascinating story. Terrific first novel by bestselling non-fiction author.
 
Filled with suspense  Dec 4, 2007
Reviewed by Lacy J. Williams

This book starts with a bang - a suicide bomber that kills Moshe Zachar's wife. Although they have had some struggles in their marriage, Moshe can't imagine life without her. When he is contacted by Israel's intelligence agency, Moshe decides to risk everything to avenge the death of his beloved spouse.

Ibrahim al-Samarri can't believe it when three men take over his apartment and try to blow up an American envoy. The Americans blow up the apartment and Ibrahim's wife and son are killed - but he lives. Intent on taking revenge against the country that ruined his life, Ibrahim joins a rebel band with a plan and the high-powered missiles to put it into play.

Rookie FBI agent Jillian Foster is not thrilled with her new assignment in Chicago. After her brother's death during the terrorist attacks on 9/11, she's been driven to prevent other people from suffering as she did. But what will she really accomplish sitting at a desk on a brand-new task force?

An accidental discovery forces professor Greg Hanson to call the FBI. All he was doing was preparing a Bible study lesson for the teenage kids he teaches on Sundays. Now he's being pulled into an investigation of national importance.

Fighting for revenge. Desperate to protect.

As the four threads in this story begin to tangle, will good overcome evil? Or will more innocent people die?

Dyer and Tobey start with an interesting premise and it's obvious they've done their research for this terrorism-themed thriller. But cliché dialogue, backstory overloads and repetitious information make it hard to stay involved with the story. There's an "unbelievability factor," too, with the fact that a civilian and foreign intelligence agent would be allowed access to sensitive government information.

But the authors make it work, for the most part.

Armchair Interviews says: If you like adventure and twisting suspense that keeps you guessing about the end, read this book.
