Visit Dr. Andrew Bostom's website for a brief excerpt on Coughlin's seminal analysis into the Western inability to take seriously Jihadi self-identification in mainstream Islam.

Ben Adams lives well: the upscale house with picket fence, the loving wife and kids, and the job with potential, but it's not enough. Ben insists his life's balance sheet has more liabilities than assets until terrorists pay for his brother's death.
He begins to fight them in a cyber war and discovers an operation that could potentially kill millions. This knowledge forces Ben to balance on the fulcrum of a crisis, pulling out all stops to help foreign agents destroy the jihadi cells while simultaneously pushing the local FBI into the fight in an attempt to preserve his future.
That future turns dark when the terrorists realize Ben has hacked their key data at the cost of everything and everyone he loves.
