Twilight by Brendan DuBois

No of pages -263
Rating 5 out of 5

In this futuristic novel the United States of America has experienced another terrorist attack. In the aftermath people have fled to the countryside trying to escape the horrors of the cities. Militia bands are roving the countryside killing refugees and civil war has broken out in areas. The United Nations has sent in international peace keeping forces trying to restore an uneasy peace. The story centers around a young idealistic journalist who has been recruited by the UN to document evidence of the atrocious war crimes that have been happening . While traveling with a special UN group it becomes quickly apparent that this is a very dangerous mission and that there is someone who is concealing evidence and placing them in dangerous life threatening situations.

Once again Brendan DuBois has written an excellent thriller. The book gave me chills because it is so realistic and portrays a possible scenario after a terrorist attack. I found the book to be absolutely riveting. I could not put it down until I had finished it. I highly recommend it.
