Here we have Matt, an undercover FBI agent, working in a charity organization to establish whether any of the small number of Muslim employees/volunteers are planning acts of terrorism.
Hamer draws his characters reasonably well, but there is otherwise nothing special about his writing and the plot is pretty predictable. It is not a graphic story as there is no alcohol or swearing in Matt's world. Not all will be enthused by the Christian overtones either. That said, there is little nonsense as there are no Superman characters and we do not have to live with any improbable scenarios or chases.
To sum up, the novel succeeds in keeping the reader's interest up, but there are no real signs of brilliance here. 7/10 (Kindle)

CONGRATULATIONS on a home run! You managed to perfectly highlight the real-life bureaucracy that law enforcement must deal with without bogging the book down in the bureaucracy itself. Well done.
Loved the story, the action, the mystery, the twist, and our new hero, Matt Hogan. Great stuff. My whole family is already looking forward to the next one, so I hope you're already writing.
We all appreciated the overt Christian message, and I especially appreciated the insight into shame vs. guilt societies. That is a very important distinction in religions, and one that needs to be understood by more people!
We all need to wake up to the threats around us, and "Enemies Among Us" is a haymaker dose of reality that grips and entertains for the entire ride. Congratulations! This book needs to be in every house in America!
-Marc Schmatjen, author of My Giraffe Makes Me Laugh
The story was made all the more believable and enjoyable for me knowing that the author is a former FBI agent who also did his share of undercover work. I highly recommend this book by a new fiction author, and though you women might enjoy it, I would recommend it more for men.
