Man of the Hour

by Peter Blauner

eBook

1 of 1 copy available

After a teacher saves his students from a terrorist attack, he finds himself at the center of the investigation

Coney Island is a weird place, packed with people from every walk of life, and David Fitzgerald fits in well. An English professor at a tough public school, he works hard to connect with students with whom he has little in common. Sometimes he succeeds; sometimes he fails. But one of his failures is about to become a catastrophe.

A former student of David's, Nasser Hamdy, has fallen in with a group of Islamic extremists who practice a cheap kind of jihad, mugging and robbing in the name of their holy war. But when they graduate to bomb-making, David finds himself wrapped up in their scheme—first as a target, and then as a suspect.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
