"In the Name of Islam" follows the action-packed adventure of Dr. Morgan Reese as he is kidnapped by Moslem terrorists and forced to perform surgery on a man calling himself The Holy Imam. Reese must find a way to escape from the farmhouse he is being held in, take nurse Miriam with him, and try to stop the act of terror on the United States that The Holy Imam is planning for September 13th.
Author I. J. Sarfeh builds on current events in this thriller. A large-scale attack on American soil by jihad terrorists is an issue hot on the minds of the American people since 9/11. Sarfeh is conscientious enough to make this book about more than just an American good guy vs. a Moslem bad guy. He shows the middle ground as well, with Nurse Miriam, who is a peaceful and outspoken Moslem woman.
I. J. Sarfeh is a skillful suspense writer. He drops hints and details in small enough amounts to get the reader curious and wanting to know more. Guessing what is going to happen next makes this a fun read, at the same time that it is intense.
I recommend this book to any thriller fan. In typical style, the book includes not only action and adventure, but a love interest as well. Fans of thriller and suspense novels will not be disappointed. The author's obvious knowledge of medical procedures puts the reader right in the action and on the edge of their seat during the surgery.
"In the Name of Islam" is a roller coaster ride that brings up many emotions. I found myself angry at Dr. Reese for being such a typical American and accusing the men who kidnap him of being terrorists just because they are dark-skinned Middle Eastern men with bushy beards and machine guns. I am angry at the kidnappers for being exactly that, terrorists that initiate this type of stereotyping. Miriam brings humanism to the story. Her religious beliefs mirror the terrorists, yet she does not believe in killing for Allah. "In the Name of Islam" takes you on a thrilling ride from start to finish.
