Overview

New York Times best selling author Sheldon Siegel has jumped onto best seller lists and into readers' and reviewers' affections with seven extraordinary novels featuring San Francisco defense attorneys Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez. He now returns to write about his hometown of Chicago in his electrifying new thriller, The Terrorist Next Door.

He's Homeland Security's biggest nightmare. Someone is setting off fire bombs in Chicago in stolen cars using untraceable cell phones. The international terror channels are silent. A group calling itself the Islamic Freedom Federation demands the release of Hassan Al-Shahid, a graduate student whose plan to set off a bomb at the Art Institute was thwarted by Detective David Gold and his long-time partner, Detective Paul Liszewski. Their heroic efforts had cost Liszewski his life and put Gold in the hospital. The FBI believes the bomber is a freelancer operating off the grid.

Meet Detective David Gold-a third generation native of South Chicago, the hardscrabble neighborhood of steel mills, smokestacks, and steeples near the Indiana border. He's one of Chicago's most decorated detectives.

Meet Gold's new partner, Detective A.C. Battle-a native of Mississippi whose family moved to Chicago to escape the Jim Crow South. He grew up in the Robert Taylor Homes across the Dan Ryan Expressway from Comiskey Park.

Gold is still suffering from the aftereffects of Liszewski's death when he receives a Medal of Valor at the Art Institute. During the ceremony, a car bomb is detonated across the street, killing a passerby. Gold receives a cryptic text: "It isn't over."

It's just the beginning. Untraceable car bombs detonate at the Wrigley Field El station, Millennium Park, the Museum of Science and Industry, O'Hare, Hyde Park, and Rush Street. Chicago PD, the FBI and Homeland Security can't trace the bomber. Gold and Battle are drawn into a desperate cat-and-mouse game against a brilliant mind. From its opening scene to its stunning climax, Siegel writes a lightning paced thriller capturing the complexity and fears of the post-9/11 world. Along the way, he provides a native's look at Chicago's neighborhoods-from the Magnificent Mile to century-old churches where mass is still celebrated in Polish to gritty seafood shacks next to the ghostly expanses where the steel mills once stood.

"David Gold and A.C. Battle are strong entries in the police-thriller sweepstakes. The Terrorist Next Door is a smart, surprising and bloody take on the world of Islamic terror. As a crazed bomber threatens to shut down American's third-largest city, the Chicago cops, the FBI, Homeland Security and even the military desperately sift through every clue, reaching for a climax that is shocking and credible. Siegel tells a story that is fast and furious and authentic." John Sandford. NY Times Best Selling Author of Stolen Prey.

"Sheldon Siegel has outdone himself in his first true thriller. The rough underbelly of Chicago comes to life as profoundly as in Carl Sandburg's view. The scariest, most thrilling portrayal of what can happen to life in a normal city. A real power play." Katherine Neville. International Best Selling Author of The Fire.

"Sheldon Siegel blows the doors off with his excellent new thriller. Bombs, car chases, the shutdown of Chicago, plus Siegel's winning touch with character makes this one not to be missed!" John Lescroart. NY Times Best Selling Author of The Hunter.

"All the indicators of a bestselling thriller - fast action, characters you think you've met in real life, bold storytelling and clever plotting. The great city of Chicago comes alive. Excellent." T. Jefferson Parker. NY Times Best Selling Author of Border Lords.
