My Fellow Americans by Keir Graff

Book Description

In the near future, America finds itself the victim of increasingly frequent terrorist attacks on its own soil. The president expands the global front of the war on terror, then declares martial law and sits, unelected, for a third term. His country simmers in suspicion and fear. In Chicago, Jason Walker, amateur photographer and architecture enthusiast, has always enjoyed taking pictures of buildings. But when he documents a skyscraper construction site a little too thoroughly Homeland Security are called. Detained, interrogated, and tortured, he's finally able to convince his captors of his innocence. But before they let him go, they have a favor to ask. There's a terrorist group operating out of a Lebanese cultural center, they say. They need a man inside. And Jason Walker's mother was Lebanese, wasn't she? Thus begins a terrifying ordeal for a man who, above all, thinks of himself as an ordinary American. Caught between an arrogant government agent and a charismatic Lebanese immigrant who calls himself a patriot - and a girlfriend who chooses an awkward time to become a political activist - Jason Walker struggles to decide who deserves his loyalty. And the stakes couldn't be higher...Set in a city whose attractions suddenly fall away to reveal suspended liberties, secret prisons, and xenophobic hysteria - and set against the spectre of the ongoing misery in Lebanon - "My Fellow Americans" reads like a story hidden between the lines in the newspaper.
