When undercover FBI agent Matt Hogan totals three vehicles in an out-of-policy Beverly Hills pursuit of a fleeing Arab drug runner, he incurs the wrath of the Bureau hierarchy. To avoid an almost certain suspension, he accepts a new assignment tracking terrorist cell groups while posing as a volunteer at a nonprofit charity. What he doesn't know is the ripples of danger from this case will threaten not only his life but the safety and security of the entire nation.

"A page-turning roller coaster that feels like Jack Bauer's 24 without sailing over the top."

Publishers Weekly

"Bob Hamer's debut novel delivers realism only an undercover FBI agent can bring. Enemies Among Us will grab you from word one and stay with you long after you've read the last evocative page. Mitch Rapp has a new friend in the world of fictional heroes, FBI Special Agent Matt Hogan."

Vince Flynn , New York Times #1 best-selling author

"Knowing Hamer 'walked the talk' as an FBI undercover agent gives this thriller a genuine edge that rings like a struck bell."

Kevin Sorbo , producer/director and star of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda

"Hamer brings a realism to his writing few authors can."

Karri Turner , actress from the CBS series JAG and recipient of the 2009 USO "Heart of a Patriot" Award

The author manages to write a fast paced FBI story here. However, and it is a bit however.....it is a guise to tell us the reader that a 'good' Muslim is one who converts to American style evangelical Christianity. Let me quote at the point I gave up on this tale. The author is describing the scene at a dying Muslim child's bedside, with the mother on one side and the American teacher on the other. "...Jesus promises to take us to God's home. All we have to do is ask Jesus to live in our hearts, and Jesus will guide us home to God....and live forever...." says the teacher. We have had many descriptions of how bad the Muslims in the story are (all terrorists), no mention of the fact that Islam respects Jesus as a prophet, yet Christianity has no part for Mohommad at all. The inference is that there is no good Muslim.

I seriously wonder how this was selected for the library, although there is no mention of this undercurrent in the blurb or in reviews quoted.
While I do not subscribe to banning books, our libraries do have a role in selecting material.
