A "are you kidding?" novel. Never mentioned on what happened to rest of the alternate history world.
Imagine the United States has split into two, between a fundamentalist Muslim northern half (with Seattle as the capital!) and a 'Bible-belted' South. This schism occurs after nuclear bombs destroy New York City, Washington D.C. AND Jerusalem - but who exactly was behind those attacks? These are the central issues in this first book of a trilogy.
Ferrigno, who was once a rock music critic in Seattle (he co-founded the venerable music mag, "The Rocket"!) before moving to southern California to write eccentric noir mysteries set down there, has created a pretty intriguing premise, and his main characters are smartly drawn, starting with the main character: former elite Muslim warrior, Rakkim "Rikki" Epps.
Plus, the bad guys are full of charm (you'll love the chance to hate them!) and Ferrigno's depiction of a future dystopian Seattle is pretty cool, too!
And once this story is satisfyingly resolved, you can continue Epps's story in two equally thrilling sequels: “Sins of the Assassin” and “Heart of the Assassin.”
VERY disappointing . - He starts off with a great concept - an America in the future has become a divided land again, over half being an Islamic Republic and a large part of the south being a Bible Republic. -Then instead of extrapolating into all the possible angles of these changes, he writes a commonplace kidnapping story ! - BORING.
