THIS COULD HAPPEN. If you have ever wondered whether ather attack of the magnitude of 9/11 could occur on American soil, you need only to read Terror on the Bay to be convinced. Brady Wilson, a veteran of multiple tours in Afghanistan returns home to the Chesapeake Bay. Soon after arriving back he uncovers a clandestine terrorist cell and finds himself in a race against time as he once again fights the war on terror - only this time it's on American soil. A brooding thriller of almost unbearable intensity, Charles Evans unleashes a potboiler of the highest order in his extraordinary debut. Brady Wilson served two tours in Afghanistan and a two-year stay at Walter Reed Medical Center recovering from the damage inflicted on him by mortar shrapnel and the psychological effects of PTSD. Now back at his Uncle Pete's place on Tilghman Island and shortly after the death of his father, all Brady wants is the peace and tranquility of the water and the Island's Watermen's Community to help him continue to repair his damaged body and soul. Working the Bay as First Mate on his Uncle Pete's charter boat, Brady supplements his income as a part-time diver for a new maritime construction company to help support his mother. When he realizes that his new bosses aren't what they seem, he delves deeper in search of the truth. He comes to a deadly conclusion - the company he works for is a shell - a front for a foreign terrorist cell. The clock is ticking as their plan moves forward and the war Brady has been trying so hard to leave behind is about to explode in the one place he can truly call home, The Chesapeake Bay. A breakneck journey into the unkwn within our very midst, Charles Evans' debut combines shocking twists and hairpin turns with first-rate characters to craft a thriller of uncommon intensity. It's carefully constructed plot reveals a truth many of us would rather t kw: we are ill-prepared for the level of terrorism our enemies are capable of perpetrating. As thought provoking as it is frighteningly believable, Terror on the Bay exposes t only our country's lack of preparedness but illuminates the courage and patriotism of America's most powerful resource: its citizens.
