Editorial Reviews

Just before the American president is scheduled to appear in Sam Moore's hometown of East Goodland, Sam's retirement plans are delayed when his daughter, Beth, goes missing. Newly reunited with the spirit of his younger brother, Billy, who died 50 years ago, Sam is guided by an unusual talisman - a small green marble - that reveals a perplexing link between Beth and her mysterious roommate, Zafina Azziz.

Who is the real Zafina? Med student, loving friend, Egyptian royal - or a keeper of deadly secrets? Is she involved with a group of suspicious students from the Middle East? And what about that phantom boyfriend she keeps mentioning?

Does Zafina know where Beth is?

That's when Sam discovers that someone is plotting to murder the president of the United States - and that someone is hiding in East Goodland.

Can Sam, his daughter, and Billy's ghost avert a catastrophe that could rival September 11?

Reading a Lazar novel is like coming home after being gone for a long time. You drive through town seeing the old pizza place and, further down the road, you ease toward the center of the road to give some fast pumping kids a bit more room while they bike to the local park. Lazar’s stories evoke comfortable memories of the past: treasures of your childhood or even the dinner the night before. Getting into one of his stories is as easy as slipping into a warm bed on a cold winter night. The characters come alive because you know them, the friendly restaurant owner and that teenager next door. The pages of his novel turn themselves over and before you know it, you are immersed in a mystery, intimate, yet entirely new.

In Terror Comes Knocking, the mystery starts with his college-aged daughter missing from her apartment. Her roommate down plays any concern about the daughter’s disappearance. Sam remains the worried parent. Very quickly, the mundane becomes mysterious and Sam Moore uses his analytical skills, honed as a doctor, to unravel the many threads tied to the stubborn and total absence of his daughter.

With the help of his long deceased brother, a ghost who sees all, but can only show bits and pieces, Sam discovers a plot with far more ramifications than his missing daughter. In fact, our nation’s security is in peril.

The action accelerates in the last fifty pages of the novel. A warning: turn off your phone, hide in your bedroom, don’t plan on anything else but finishing the book. The pieces to the puzzle fit together and the final picture is one of absolute terror. Be prepared for a sort of roller coaster ride and don’t plan on doing anything else until you reach the end.

This is my second Sam Moore novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

With literary accolades for 'Healey's Cave' in his pocket, Aaron Lazar and his Green Marble Mystery (series) featuring Sam Moore, now present 'Terror Comes Knocking'.

Retired Dr. Sam Moore and his family, Bruce--Sam's childhood friend turned U.S. Senator, along with The Green Marble itself, reappear from 'Healey's Cave' to offer excellent characterization to this second installation novel. Aaron Paul Lazar uses each of these well rounded characters to create and to sustain the thrilling plot of 'Terror Comes Knocking'.

In its opening pages, Sam and Rachel casually wonder why their college student daughter has not called. A dutiful daughter living away from home, Beth is keen on making contact with her mother on a daily basis. Where is she? The answer to that question is not forthcoming. What does come is a barrage of unimaginable events that force the upstate New York couple to realize that their daughter's missing is more serious than they both expected.

From that point on, one terror after the next knocks at the Moore's front door. From that point on, people Rachael and Sam believed would help them find Beth, prove to be unreliable.

Sam and Bruce unite to bring her home.

From that point on, Lazar skillfully crafts this mystery thriller as only he can. His natural "feel" for the mystery storytelling process masterfully comes to surface once more. By the time 'Terror Comes Knocking' arrives at its climax, readers will find themselves plenty of times exclaiming aloud,OMG!

Oh My Gosh! What an exquisitely told mystery thriller, what a fine pick for your next reading pleasure. And oh yes. Brace yourself for Terror Comes Knocking's formidable ending!

Another wonderful story by Mr. Lazar. Sam Moore is a wonderful man or woman's man that would just like to rest in his retirement, tend his gardens and love his wife and family but trouble keeps coming to find him. It appears to be his purpose in life to right wrongs and save the day whenever necessary. The character is easy to admire, laugh with and at and cheer on as he has many close calls that leave the reader breathless. The love this character has for others, especially his family and friends, is real and not presented in a patronizing manner by the author.

Many current event topics that fit in our lives today are addressed and open up the possibility for intriguing discussions. This would be a great book to be enjoyed by either gender and also be a superb bookclub choice.

Another adept ability Lazar has is that no matter the role in his books, a character is never flat, one dimensional or easily defined. This reader has found that when a character enters on a page, one should tread carefully, watching what is said and done. It almost brings the reader into the Dr. Watson role, helping to watch for hints and secrets to understand the story and urge the protagonist on to succeed on his/her journey. Making a visit to Sam and his family was pure perfection.

The only disappointing part was reading the last two words, The End.

Yes, Mr. Lazar. You have done it again. Thank you.

Have you ever read a book and thought it was so good, and didn't want it to end?

That's how I felt after reading Terror Comes Knocking by Aaron Paul Lazar. I just wanted the story to keep on going.

Terror Comes Knocking, is a novel in the Sam Moore Mystery series. This book takes you into a whole different world, and you experience an adventure unlike any other. It's interesting, it's paranormal, and it's one you won't be able to put down. The character development is excellent; everything is so descriptive that you feel like you are a character in the book!


The story begins with Sam Moore, a retired GP doctor. Alongside his wife, Rachel (who unfortunately has MS), they run into a very an unexpected situation; one that a retired doctor shouldn't need to deal with. Their daughter, Beth, is missing. Nobody seems to know where she is, nor does anybody seem to take the Moore's seriously. Sam knows there is something terribly wrong, and does everything he can to find Beth.

Guided by his deceased brother, Billy, who speaks to Sam through a extraordinary green marble, Sam Moore slowly unravels the twisted story behind his daughter's disappearance.

Sam's good friend Bruce (the Senator) is a candidate in the nearing presidential election. As Bruce is under a large amount of pressure due to the current president visiting, he is also taking on a bit of stress in helping the Moore's locate their daughter.

As the story unfolds, we are introduced to an interesting group of people, people that may be concealing far more than they are letting on.

Terror Comes Knocking is absolutely jam packed with action you don't want to miss out on. At 240 pages, you won't want to reach the endpoint.
