The Jihad Next Door: The Lackawanna Six and Rough Justice in an Age of Terror
They called themselves the Arabian Knights. They were six Yemeni-American friends, a gang of high-school soccer stars, a band of brothers on the grim side streets of Lackawanna's First Ward, just a stone's throw from Buffalo.
Later, people would argue about why they left western New York in the spring of 2001 to attend an al-Qaeda camp. Some said they traveled to Afghanistan to become America's first sleeper cell—terrorists slumbering while they awaited orders from on high. Others said that their ill-fated trip was a lark, an adventurous extension of their youthful wrestling with what it meant to be Muslim in America.
Dina Temple-Raston returns to Lackawanna to tell the story of a group of young men—born and brought up in small town America—who left otherwise unremarkable lives to attend an al-Qaeda camp. Though they sought to quietly slip back into their roles as middle class Americans, the 9/11 attacks made that impossible.
The Jihad Next Dooris the story of pre-emptive justice in the age of terror. It follows a handful of ordinary men through an extraordinary time when Muslims in America are often instantly suspect, their actions often viewed through the most sinister lens.

Mystery regarding a woman, accused of abducting her son and hiding him from the husbands powerful family. Corporate secrets are stolen, another woman murdered in place of the heroine, big bucks at stake. Lots of interesting details to sort thro by Barbara Holloway and her father.

Great ending!! For the most part, this book flowed well. The beginning wasn't as page-turning as the middle and end, but it had enough of the plot set up that when things began to happen to Barbara, you were running along with her. This is the second Wilhelm book that I've read and she definately has a new fan. Her plots are well thought out and twisted enough to make the reader use their heads while reading. I was forced to pay attention because I didn't want to miss one little detail that would probably make a big difference in upcoming scenes of the story. Since this is part of a series of books with main character Barbara Holloway, I'll definately be checking out the next one. Honestly though, I don't think that I'll back up and pick up others prior to A Wrongful Death. Cold Case is the follower to this one, and I've added it to my wish list!
