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?

A good listen makes for an amazing day!
Absolutely. It has a suspenseful and catching story line which keeps the listener glued.
Without revealing too much, the book had many twists and turns which kept me interested.

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.
There was no one memorable moment as I enjoyed the full story.
I found Robert King Ross's performance nothing less than perfection for this book and subject matter.
I did not have an extreme reaction. I love suspense and thriller novels and this is definitely one of my top 10 favorites.

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.

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!

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.
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.
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.
To some extent, although it was pretty obvious where the plot was leading from fairly early on. It did have some nice twists.
I didn't particularly care for the narrator. His voice was too deep for this particular novel, especially for the female parts.
Retired doctor foils upstate NY terror plot, while tending his garden and his invalid wife.
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.
I am a working woman in a man's world but it's ok because I really love being around men !! I've been happily married for 48 years!
Aaron Paul Lazar has a knack for giving his readers the unexpected twists in his stories. The phrase, "I didn't see that coming" surely must have been coined by someone who was reading the Green Marble Series of Aaron's vast list of books. Readers are constantly rewarded with heart-stopping moments that keep them hooked on the lives of the wonderful characters in this book.
Aaron knows how to paint such an amazing mental pictures of his stories. I especially was thrilled when Sam was able to hoist himself up onto a huge horse and gain strength from his innermost memories of his childhood and was able to "take care business". Instead of, "It's just like riding a bike" it was "it's just like riding a horse" in this instance. I could feel the pounding of the horse's hooves keeping time with the pounding of my heartbeat in this amazing part of the story. (I would love to say more but don't want to spoil the story).
Sam is the epitome of a "man's man." He is gentle around his family but when it comes to protecting them he is a true warrior. I so enjoyed the scene between him and his daughter Beth when they were discussing her special surprising news near the end of the story. Sam was a loving supportive father who totally explained how a parent can love his child no matter what !
I was so proud of Sam and his accomplishments in this story. He stands for what being a true American is all about. The special visitor he had when he was in the hospital made me proud to live in the U.S.
I was given this book by Aaron Paul Lazar in exchange for an honest review here on Audible. I have enjoyed all of Aaron's books and I am so eager to keep listening to everything he has ever written or ever will write in the future.
