THE LIT-CRIT TAKE: A genre-bending, character-driven thriller, centering on the themes of terrorism, understanding and hope.
THE PURE PLOT PITCH: Here’s bad day: Guy sets out to rob a bank but ends up pulling a carjacking, and when he’s arrested a body is found in the trunk. The victim is a Sunni community leader, and why was he killed? Who killed him? The search for answers takes me into a homegrown Islamic terror underground, into plots, counterplots, deceptions and love affairs, all leading to an attack on a major NYC landmark.
