Publisher's Summary

Just before the American president is scheduled to appear in Sam Moore's hometown of East Goodland, Sam's retirement plans are delayed when his daughter, Beth, goes missing. Newly reunited with the spirit of his younger brother, Billy, who died 50 years ago, Sam is guided by an unusual talisman - a small green marble - that reveals a perplexing link between Beth and her mysterious roommate, Zafina Azziz.

Who is the real Zafina? Med student, loving friend, Egyptian royal - or a keeper of deadly secrets? Is she involved with a group of suspicious students from the Middle East? And what about that phantom boyfriend she keeps mentioning?

Does Zafina know where Beth is?

That's when Sam discovers that someone is plotting to murder the president of the United States - and that someone is hiding in East Goodland.

Can Sam, his daughter, and Billy's ghost avert a catastrophe that could rival September 11?

    "Lots of twists and turns"

    Not at all what unexpected, but there were enough surprises and plot twists to keep me interested and guessing to the end.

    "Thrills and Suspense ..Excellent Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Terror Comes Knocking the most enjoyable?

    This is my first time listening to a suspense/thriller novel with supernatural elements and I found that the suspense and thrills with a twist of supernatural made this book enjoyable. I have never had an interest in supernatural books before but this novel has made me a listener. Also, that the author wrote the book in a way that makes you feel as if you are part of the story, not just listening to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Terror Comes Knocking?

    There was no one memorable moment as I enjoyed the full story.


    What about Robert King Ross’s performance did you like?

    I found Robert King Ross's performance nothing less than perfection for this book and subject matter.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not have an extreme reaction. I love suspense and thriller novels and this is definitely one of my top 10 favorites.

    "A Wonderful Joy Ride"

    I couldn't stop listening! Even though this is book #2 in the series its also a great stand alone. This is my first book in the series and I wasn't lost because I didn't listen/read book 1. I look forward to other books in this series. Great storyline overall, keeps you guessing which makes for a perfect mystery.

    "Wow awesome story lots of suspense!"

    Pretty impressive. I was a little turned off by the Harlequinnesque cover but it's nothing like a Fabio driven story!! Lot's of twists & plot is superb. Missing daughter & parents worse nightmare. Has a bit of supernatural element just enough to give people like me a little shiver. Unreliable help in the quest but not the pitfalls at every corner kind of book I hate. I love the imagery - wow. Just enough to make you feel like you can "see it" without being redundant & unnecessary! It's a great read you won't regret downloading it.......off to see what other awesome stories this author has!

    Story
    "Suspense + "real" people = a good listen"

    This book is a worthy successor to "Healey's Cave," which introduced Sam Moore.
    In "Terror Comes Knocking," Sam's paranormal visions are sometimes enlightening, sometimes teasingly hard for Sam to figure out, as he gets embroiled in a terrorist plot. The suspense builds, to the point that it was keeping me awake, so I had to turn it off at bedtime!
    As usual, Lazar weaves strong elements of family, relationships, and social issues into the story, too, which is one of the things that make me a fan of his books.

    Robert King Ross did a super job reading this book. His voice is always clear, totally suited to the character of Sam, and his inflections conveyed the dialogue and narration perfectly.

    Between the narration and the expert writing, I always felt like I was right inside Sam's head.

    "Review of Terror Comes Knocking"

    Great story. Kudos! I'm on to the next in the series. I know it will be as great as the first two in the Sam Moore series.

    Story
    "Gardening loving retired Doctor foils terror plot."
    What did you love best about Terror Comes Knocking?

    It was a good contemporary setting of a terrorist plot in upstate NY. The technology details were generally good, although I thought a weakness was when Zafina searches her handbag looking for her address book to find a phone number. Since she has a cell phone, any normal person nowadays would just look through the recently called numbers.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    To some extent, although it was pretty obvious where the plot was leading from fairly early on. It did have some nice twists.


    What three words best describe Robert King Ross’s performance?

    I didn't particularly care for the narrator. His voice was too deep for this particular novel, especially for the female parts.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Retired doctor foils upstate NY terror plot, while tending his garden and his invalid wife.


    Any additional comments?

    While overall I liked the book, it felt like it was not quite sure what it wanted to be. Part YA novel, part action thriller, part romance novel with steamy sexual innuendos, part Martha Stewart telling us about gardening.

    "It's alright"

    Note: In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and/or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBlast.

    This was apparently the second book in a series, which I don't think I realized when I got the book. But that didn't really matter too much; it wasn't hard to follow because it was almost like a standalone book anyway.

    Having said that ... this book was alright. Just alright. Nothing hugely spectacular. I don't know if it was the material or the narrator (who was OK, but just didn't have a performance that grabbed me with interest). The plot was decent enough, if somewhat predictable to a certain extent, but it just didn't keep me engaged in what was going on with the characters or the story. And there was one glaring mistake that I couldn't forget (but was irrelevant to the overall picture, so I'll go ahead and mention it here without a spoiler warning). A doctor operates on one of the characters, and he comes out to meet with the family member who's waiting and he's got blood all over his scrubs. The family member is rightly worried, thinking it's the blood of their loved on, but the doctor said it was blood from a trauma patient that came in right before he operated on the character in question. Now, I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure it would not be acceptable for a surgeon to go from one patient (with their blood all over him) to another patient he's going to operate on without cleaning up and changing his scrubs.

    Anyway, I don't have a whole lot more to add about it. Apparently, several people liked this novel a lot because it has much higher ratings than I would personally give it. But you'll have to check it out for yourself and see; you may come away with a totally different perspective.
