This is a violent and unsettling novel about terrorists, a cautionary tale, but also the deeply moving personal story of a conflicted police detective. Felix the Cat, only nominally Muslim, but fanatically anti-American and anti-Israeli, is terrorizing New York City and Washington, D.C., with a series of bombings. This third-rate screenwriter plants a deadly bomb which kills and maims hundreds in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Station. The FBI seems in suspicious haste to label it a suicide bombing.

Grand Central Station is Detective Sergeant Denny Delaney’s turf. Minutes before the attack Denny has been suspended because his drinking is interfering with his duties. His wife Monny has left him. After Denny barely misses getting killed in the bombing, he examines the terminal’s surveillance tapes with his wheelchair-bound, attractive coworker Terry, and he and she realize that this is not the work of a suicide bomber. The bomber has walked away unscathed. After Nine-Eleven Denny had been on TDY with the FBI, and he has made a connection to that duty and the bomber. By threatening to reveal what he knows, Denny gets reinstated to FBI duty so he can work the case.
