From the Author
Over the past several years, I have studied the Middle East in depth, learning about the history, culture, religion, and language of its nations, as well as the conflicts that plague this area of the world. During a month-long trip to the region in the summer of 2010, I met many moderate Muslims; wonderful and friendly people who harbor no anger against the West and want to see peace in the Middle East, but are frightened into submission and drowned out by the radical extremist groups who are far more powerful and far-reaching than most people think.
The people and events portrayed in the pages of this novel are fictional, but they are based in fact, modeled after profiles of many real-world people and events. Islamic terrorism is a very real and present threat in the world today.
From the Back Cover
Shortly before September 11, 2001, Joe Biden warned, "The question is not if we will be attacked by terrorists, but rather when and where." In the pages of No Safe Place, terrorism has come to America once again. Sleeper agents for a radical Islamic terrorist group that calls itself Ansar Inshallah have managed to blend into American society and go undetected - until now. As Ansar Inshallah's sleeper cells awaken, Americans discover that appearances can be deceiving and the people around them may not be who they seem. Homeland Security Counter-Terrorism Division agent John Anderson and his field partner, Agent Erin Walker of the FBI, are racing against the clock to uncover and bring down Ansar Inshallah. But how do you fight a war when your enemy is hidden among you?
