Veiled Threats: A Chicagoland Detective Story

Veiled Threats: A Chicagoland Detective Story
Khalila Hawas, a young Muslim American college student attending Roosevelt University in Chicago, has her whole life ahead of her. But when the vibrant young woman is brutally murdered in an alley just east the Loop, tensions mount as outraged Muslims clamor for the killer to be apprehended and brought to justice.

Detective Sgt. Morgan Strongbow and his new partner, Sara Rydell are assigned to the case. Soon, another Muslim girl turns up dead, and the detectives find themselves thrust into a religiously charged case that could cost one or both of them their lives.

When Sara learns Strongbow once dated her aunt, matters are complicated even further. Strongbow must fend off bittersweet memories of first love as his partner picks at his emotional scabs, trying to uncover his deepest secrets.

Filled with mind-bending plot twists, Veiled Threats explores the most daunting issues of today: the war in Iraq, the problems of America's returning veterans, and how people of different faiths treat each other in a post-September 11 world.
