Sixteen-year-old Zane Walker was lucky the first time: hero, reformer, media sensation, escape artist--and blasphemer. His survival of numerous near death experiences was chalked up to a Teflon coating, bestowed by some sympathetic benefactor. Casting online religious edicts to a worldwide Islamic audience was not a typical high school media project, especially from an American school in Saudi Arabia. When he was found out, he thought his life was over. Miraculously, authorities discovered that he had been used, set up by a terrorist cell to help create global tension on the Internet. The worldwide condemnation, regardless of his innocence, would remain a powerful memory, in every corner of the earth, wherever anyone had a computer and used social media.

As his new life unfolds, Zane embraces the illusion that he and his family are safe. Idyllic Germany: sophisticated, progressive, with its cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses, red tile roofs, and four time World Cup Champions. But there is a darkerr side: right wing hate groups and a growing fear of immigrants. For Zane Walker, this new adventure in a sleepy little German town rapidly becomes a firestorm of danger and intrigue--not necessarily a bad thing for a guy with newly minted nerves of steel--unless you're his parents.

Never could he have imagined that his infamous media persona, the Grand Mufti Achmed Ali, would become a closeted hero to the fascist, far right, neo-Nazi movement. He is now marked, not for what he had done, but for who he has become.

About the Author

Bob Jonas has been a school librarian for nineteen years-four in Beaverton, Oregon and seven in China -- Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. In South America he worked for three years in Santiago, Chile, and then three years in the in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. After retiring from his last post in Germany, on July 1, 2015, he will continue to write, visit schools, present at conferences, and use what he knows—which is a lot—to get kids excited about books, reading, and writing.

His travel and writing obsessions began after reading Thor Heyerdahl's Kon Tiki-he was ten. His storytelling obsession began with his dad-the greatest tale teller, BS artiste, mesmerizer, and raconteur the younger Jonas would ever lean on for inspiration.

His first fifteen years of adulthood found him living the travel adventure in a semi-truck where he logged over a million miles in twelve western states. Unfortunately, the road stint lasted about twelve years too long. After too many speeding tickets, too many run-ins with angry weigh masters, bad, bad, and double bad winter weather, not to mention a real bad back, he knew it was time to find his old college degree and get himself somewhere else.

As a storyteller, writer, and librarian he has motivated, inspired, stimulated, stirred, cajoled, provoked, and done what was necessary to instill a love of reading in kids on fours continents.
