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.
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?

For a first published book it's written so well and really makes you realize what really is going on in our Country, why so many other Countries hate us, very very sad.
Can't wait for another book.
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.
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.
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.
