When Miller warns authorities about this group and its plans, no one listens, because the FBI's focus has shifted to foreign terrorists, and his home, Jersey City, has the second largest population of Arab Muslims in America. "Saint Chris" comes up against the same sort of bureaucratic resistance encountered by the FBI agents who, pre-9/11, wrote memos about Arab Terrorists Flying Airplanes that no one paid attention to. The White Wolves have chosen Thanksgiving as the day to strike, since they feel the holiday commemorates God giving of this country to his chosen people: the white man. Meanwhile, on the home front, Miller has to cope with his daughter's post traumatic stress as the anniversary of her Christmas nightmare draws near and he will be torn between taking care of her and saving thousands of innocent lives!
Don't miss Christopher Miller's first holiday adventure, Slay Ride (Unabridged).

"Gripping....This rapid-fire entertainment is sure to please Grabenstein's fans." (Publishers Weekly)
As a fan of the John Ceepak mysteries, I didn't know if I'd take to Grabenstein's newest hero, but this is a terrific book. It doesn't have the humor and light tone of the Ceepak series, but it is a gripping thriller.
This is a very good story from the author of the excellent "John Ceepak" mysteries (start with TILT-A-WHIRL). To me, it's a believable terrorist plot that's very relevant for our times! For the investigators and the terrorists the story takes unexpected turns. If you like Alex Cross you'll love Christopher Miller, the FBI agent who's out to thwart these terrorists without deserting his family during the Christmas holidays.
If you like his other books, which I did immensely, you are going to be disappointed in this production. Slow story, bad plot, no humor. Skip it, but check out his other books.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
It took me awhile to adjust to the different narrator but the book was excellent. Can't wait for more Chris Grabenstein books.
