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?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Terror Comes Knocking to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the e book version.


    What other book might you compare Terror Comes Knocking to and why?

    Others in the Sam Moore series.


    Have you listened to any of Robert King Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen. It's favorable. For me, it fit the Sam Moore character well. The other voice interpretations for characters seemed natural, not forced nor overwrought.


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

    I did become involved with both the story and its characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second Sam Moore book I've listened to. Very enjoyable.

    Thank you.

    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.

    "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!
