Reviews

Taking post-9/11 conspiracy theories that blamed the attacks on Zionist agents as the seed for this unusual thriller, Ferrigno (The Wake-Up) posits a nuclear terrorist onslaught in 2015 on New York City, Washington, D.C., and Mecca that has all the earmarks of a Mossad operation. The blue states are moved by these horrors to convert to Islam, while the red states break away from the Islamic Republic, forming a Christian republic in the South. By 2040, three major parties struggle for control in the Islamic Republic: the moderate State Security forces, under Redbeard; the Black Robes, a fundamentalist religious police force; and the top-secret Assassins, under the Old One. When Sarah Dougan, Redbeard's niece and a respected historian, reinvestigates the 2015 attack for a new book, The Zionist Betrayal?, the Old One sics his deadliest assassin on her. Running from Seattle to Vegas, Sarah has a protector in her lover, an ex-fedayeen soldier named Rakkim Epps, whose agnostic POV anchors the novel. Fans of instapundit politics will love this thriller, which has the cinematic motion and atrocity F/X of a good airport read. However, Ferrigno's gimmick-the transformation of America into a cartoon version of Islam-lends the proceedings a damaging air of implausibility. (Feb.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

It's 2040, and America has been split into two countries-a Bible Belt Christian nation and a moderate Islamic republic-after New York, Washington, and Mecca were blasted off the map, supposedly by Israel. But then Sarah and her Muslim-convert boyfriend discover that Israel wasn't the real perpetrator. With a three-city tour. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
