Steve O’Brien’s Redemption Day brings Terrorism home. In this book, we aren’t faced with the “evil foreigners” but with homegrrown domestric terrorists. This time around it’s the Posse Comitatus. Their belief is that the government itself is unconstitutional. To garner attention, they kidnap a Supreme Court Judge. Nick James has just been fired as a Terrorism Analyst for a government contractor. He suddenly finds himself implicated not only in the murder of a Sheriff, but with the khis group as well. He must avoid not only the law, but the terrorists as he tries to prove his innocence.

I thought the characters were very tight and well written. The character of the main terrorist is similar to many others who in their own minds thought they were doing the patriotic thing. He brings to mind people such as Timothy McVeigh. The plot and storyline of the book are very topical as the number of militant extremist groups have been on the rise over the last few years.

The action scenes lead you at a breakneck speed through D.C. as Nick tries to absolve himself. A very exciting book, and I’d highly recommend it for those political thriller afficionados out there. I think you’d really like it. There is some strong situations etc. so I’d recommend it for older teens and adults. Grab a copy, give it a read, and don’t forget to come back by and tell us what you thought.
