Man of the Hour: A Mystery

After a teacher saves his students from a terrorist attack, he finds himself at the center of the investigation

Coney Island is a weird place, packed with people from every walk of life, and David Fitzgerald fits in well. An English professor at a tough public school, he works hard to connect with students with whom he has little in common. Sometimes he succeeds; sometimes he fails. But one of his failures is about to become a catastrophe.
 
A former student of David’s, Nasser Hamdy, has fallen in with a group of Islamic extremists who practice a cheap kind of jihad, mugging and robbing in the name of their holy war. But when they graduate to bomb-making, David finds himself wrapped up in their scheme—first as a target, and then as a suspect.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

'“A remarkable achievement—I loved it and couldn’t put it down.” —Stephen King “Thorough reportage and dead-on description . . . as impressive for its realism as for its suspense.” —Publishers Weekly “Nobody writing suspense novels does it as well.” —James Patterson'
