The was an exciting book with timely subject matter
Very good story line, a teacher is accused of bombing a school bus, which affects his family and job and he must find the one who did it, and its about the person who actually planted the bomb and his reasons. I didnt think I would care for this, but I found myself drawn into it.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
All his life, schoolteacher David Fitzgerald has wanted to live up to the legacy left by his war-hero father, and one day he gets his chance. There is an explosion on a bus, and in a moment of unexpected courage he saves the life of a student onboard.
Suddenly, David is a local celebrity - a capital-h Hero. His son idolizes him. His students listen to him. The President mentions him in a speech. The news crews film him in the classroom. His unremarkable life feels, for a day, extraordinary.
But then everything changes. The police begin to suspect that David planted the bomb to make himself heroic. And in the whiplash that follows, he becomes the target of a federal investigation and the prey of the media wolf pack. His home is torn apart, his livelihood is taken away, and he may even lose custody of his son. In the midst of all this, he learns that the real bombers are getting ready to strike again, on a far more deadly scale.
David can recover his good name only by tracking them down and stopping them. His search leads him to a remarkable young woman who has one foot in the bomber's world and one in the world of typical American adolescence. If he can get her to trust him, innocent lives may be saved. If he fails, she and David may both be killed.
Suddenly in a single impulsive act of rescue,teacher David Fitzgerald is a media sensation. Then, jsut as swiftly, he becomes the suspect in the very crime-the boming of a school bus-that he fought to prevent.
