When nationality profiling does NOT work …

Redemption Day by Steve O’Brien is all about terrorism from a group that wants to teach the government a lesson. The difference this time is that the terrorists were not from a foreign country – they were homegrown. Since they looked and talked like everybody else, it was almost impossible to identify all their members.
The book opens with Nick and several others being fired from their jobs. This is followed closely by a Supreme Court judge being kidnapped and his protection detail killed. After a series of unfortunate incidents, Nick finds himself wanted by the police for murder. From this point on, the book flashes quickly between the people that are holding Justice Caprelli hostage and Nick trying to clear his name while evading the police.
The action is fast paced with some very colorful characters. Unfortunately, some of these colorful characters also have very off-color vocabularies.
The story is very believable and easy to get involved in. There are times in the book where it is difficult to tell who the real bad guys are.
An excellent book that I found difficult to put down.
I look forward to reading other works by this author.
