Reprisal - Colin Nelson
Reprisal is $3.99 for the kindle, but free for Amazon prime members. Islamic terrorists have decided to up the ante and Minnesota is the bullseye on the target. Zehra Hassan is a Muslim woman and a public defender in Minneapolis. Paul Schmidt is an FBI agent. He's part of a task force that was investigating Somali Muslim men disappearing from the twin cities area. Mustafa Ammar is a geneticist working for the Minnesota company, Health Technologies. But that's just Mustafa's day job. Mustafa is planning the biggest terrorist attack on America in history. Zehra and Paul are going to have to stop Mustafa before Minnesota becomes the epicenter of the worst epidemic in modern history. This is a good book, but not great. The disjointed editing, and dead ends used as filler, distract from what could be a great suspenseful thriller. Recommended.
