"This is why our faith will ultimately win over the world, because it is not just faith, but also a way to love, a way to govern. All aspects are united as one. Others are splintered into political factions, denominations, 'church and state.' Allah has designed Islam in this way so that one day his truth will rule the world. While everyone in the West argues and debates, we will command." (pg 159). In the chilling novel, Enemy in the Room by Parker Hudson, readers get a first hand look at the very possibility that what we think is private is really public knowledge for those with the right technology to gain an advantage not only in business, finances but also in promoting their own political agenda without anyone knowing about it. In this case under the pseudo name of USNet ran by Trevor Knox, a man who is about to plan for the downfall not only of America, but also the world so that Islam can rule and reign as he believes Allah would command. He has managed to use technology to spy on cell phone conversations and emails using key words to generate a series of closer scrutiny to see how it might benefit one of his corporations, whether in the adult film industry, telecommunications, banking or one of his other many vast holdings as he works to gain even more real estate all around the globe in order to see his plans come to fruition. He has covered his tracks well and no one is any wiser as they go about their normal business day while he grows stronger financial in every area. The only thing standing in his way is the President of the United States who is implementing policies around the globe that will impact his future in a negative way and she must be stopped at all costs. Terrorist plots continue around the globe and is seems as if they are one step ahead of the game without anyone discovering how they are doing it. As some of Knox's employees begin to question some of their companies business interests, he insures that they will simply disappear in a random series of accidents which lead authorities on a wild goose chase. Now the clock is ticking as both the leaders of the United States and Russia plan a meeting that could end the adult film industry, the one that garners the most money for Knox and he will stop at nothing to make sure that they are both eliminated without their governments knowing how he plans to do it. I received Enemy in the Room by Parker Hudson compliments of Edge Press for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own personal ones. This novel really invites readers to look at just how insecure our technology really is and how comfortable we are in sharing information without any regard to how it might be used. While this novel is a fictional story, it is chilling to consider just how true the story might be considering how many of our freedoms we take for granted are now being changed and altered. It really provokes some serious thought into world and cyber security and that is precisely what I believe the authors intentions are in writing this novel. For me this one garners a 5 out of 5 stars.
Enemy in the Room deftly interweaves a story that underscores moral values with the story of a terrorist cell that seeks to bring down world leaders, and, thus, the world. In the manner of Joel Rosenberg or Jeff Nesbit or Craig Parshall, author Parker Hudson develops the characters to give readers insight into the mind of terrorists-- that starkly parallels the mind of those characters that are otherwise morally corrupt, through their misuse of video technology. Some scenes are edge-of-your-seat intense as the various players and themes intersect in a world that is about to change dramatically for the worse.
