Editorial Reviews

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?

Definitely recommend!

I am an avid fan of terrrorist thrillers and I found this to be an exciting action-packed page-turner.

In her first novel, Taylor Wilmering has captured the essence of what I believe we may face from both foreign and home-grown terrorist attacks, now and in the future. Not complex sensational attacks like 9/11, but coordinated local assaults on innocent civilians in a camapign to create generalized chaos and undermine our way of life.

Well written and tasteful. Read it, you won't be disappointed.

In her first published novel, author Taylor Wilmering demonstrates that she is very adept at telling a straightforward story of what happened in each event carried out in the US as part of a sleeper cell plot. I was pleased with her ability to move the tale forward using what she really knows about and I felt that she created a very believable, frightening plot, weaving together a number of incidents in which terrorism was directed towards Los Angeles.

When she describes interaction between characters however she tends towards overly descriptive language which does not fit with the "just the facts" tone set in the rest of her writing. A good editor could make this book a good deal better. This was a much better book near the end when there were fewer descriptors of actions such as meaningful glances and knowing nods, and that gives me reason to look forward to future work by the author.

No Safe Place was an action-packed read that delivered what readers of the genre usually want. It kept the interest and delved into an area about which is a major threat that most Americans, the television show "The Americans" notwithstanding, seem to ignore. There are undoubtedly sleeper agents in the US, and they have a tremendous potential to do the country harm.

The book starts out with an info dump, some of it with faulty timelines, and that might turn off those who read the Kindle sample first. It gets better, though, so that it not indicative of the rest of the book.

The author obviously did quite a bit of research in the writing of the book to make sure what she wrote is either accurate or could be accurate given the situation. While I think the planning aspects of various operations were a little backyard football ("hike me the ball and go deep") with extremely basic planning done on the fly, I think the bulk of the book was realistic and believable.

This is the author's first book, and if this is an indication of her writing abilities, I think she will find success as an author.

Ms.Wilmering has talent. What she lacks is experience in a very sophisticated venue. Whether this college student's debut effort warrants the price tag of the print version is another matter. The writing is above average, but the style reveals the inexperience of the writer. The purchaser needs to be aware of these flaws before purchasing the story. I made my selection after finishing the second of a trilogy also written by a rather new writer who has not completed his third book, and I was desperate for something in the genre. The comparison between this effort and the sophistication of the other writer was startling. Then I read the author's bio and recalled the book I wrote when I was 23, the one I have hidden in box stuffed in a closet, and realized I had stumbled upon a credible debut effort of a very young writer. She has more courage than I had at her age, because I sent my book to only one publisher, and I actually got a personal rejection from a Random House editor stating the same things that I would tell Ms. Wilmering if I were an agent or an editor: Keep writing. And keep publishing, but strive to develop as you go, because you are not there yet. Try going to writer's workshops,network with other writers in the genres you like best, and live more. Perhaps it was a mistake because I waited nearly fifty years before I bit the bullet and wrote my very belated debut. I agree with the reviewer who praised her fine action scenes, and I also concur that principal characters are well defined. She is more knowledgeable than many acclaimed writers in the genre as to the ordnance in the terrorist's arsenal, and she is willing to do her homework. I suspect she will produce works warranting five star ratings in the very near future. I do not think this is it. I was tempted to rate rate this book a four star, and it certainly warrants a 3.5.

Astonishingly professional for a first novel.,
This is a wonderful, thought provoking book concerning terrorism and what happens when sleeper cells are activated by their handlers. The idea that there are "terrorists among us" is, in my opinion, not something that should be discounted as fiction. This remarkable effort by Taylor Wilmering starts out quickly and picks up the pace as it moves relentlessly toward its ending while sweeping you along as if you are an unwilling rubbernecker at a train wreck. The book is very well written, suspenseful and realistic and will indeed have you turning pages, unwilling to put it down. Bravo, for a real winner from this wonderfully talented young author. 4 1/2 stars from me.

A well written but very scary book to read, especially these days with so many people promoting radical islam and glorifying hatred and trying to blame the innocent for the terror brought on by this radicalism. This book shows how easily terrorism could happen in every town, in any town; in YOUR town.
