On This Day: Homeland Thriller Series by Oak Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really liked the protagonist in this book. Despite some failings, he is a person of integrity. Doesn't always know what's best for him, but who does? Certainly his determination to uncover Truth is to be applauded. Thankfully, since this is the first of a series, Brant Discher will return.
ON THIS DAY purports an interesting and possibly accurate premise. For some years, the number of children and adolescents orphaned by the Middle Eastern strife has increased tremendously. Some Americans have adopted adolescents via international adoption agencies, whose regulations may not be as strict as those in the Western countries. That's all very charitable, but the premise here is that some of these adolescents are "deep sleepers." (Manchurian Candidate, anyone?) Trained both in their Islamic faith and also in violence and terrorism, they are sent to America as new adoptees of upper-middle-class families. Eventually, when the time comes, they will break cover and incite terrorism and high numbers of fatalities.
