Resident mystery buff and Altoona librarian Debbie Weakland reviews this hot new thriller, set 35 years in the future, after terrorists conquer America and civil war divides the nation into a Muslim north and Bible Belt south. The heroine is a young historian who wants to find the truth about the past; her lover is a former fedayeen solider who only wants to live in peace.
