In THE MESSENGER, K. M. Deal creates a riveting thriller that follows a nightmare scenario for an Arab American neurologist approached by terrorists. Mirroring the conflicts erupting across the Middle East today, the story depicts the struggle of a man who is loyal to his country but values his heritage.

The prologue of THE MESSENGER begins with a funeral in Decatur, Georgia. A man observes from a distant hilltop. He is known throughout terrorist networks as Al Ustadh, The Teacher. Born in Egypt and educated at Oxford, he is as comfortable in London and New York as in Cairo.

 The story begins one month prior to the funeral. Dr. Sami Nasser, a Palestinian born neurologist practicing at Emory University Hospital, is passionately involved in his work and married to a beautiful American woman. The Teacher is his nemesis, a man who craves violence as much as Sami abhors it. As the plot unfolds, the beliefs and experiences of both men reveal a radically divergent interpretation of Islam.

 Three acolytes are dispatched by The Teacher to extract information from Sami—at any cost. The ensuing action takes place in Decatur, Georgia, historic Savannah, and the exclusive enclave of Haig Point on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. A brutal murder triggers a frantic chase up I-95 and culminates in an explosive climax in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Community Library Review
I just noticed that the new book selections this month in the community library seem to be focused on the South. The Messenger by K.M. Deal moves from Decatur, Georgia, to historic Savannah and Daufuskie Island in South Carolina. I read this exciting new novel straight through in one day. It revolves around a Palestinian born neurologist working at Emory University Hospital. Dr. Sami Nasser is married to an American woman and while loyal to America, respects his Palestinian culture. Shady characters from Dr. Nasser’s homeland attempt to subvert the doctor for terrorist purposes. There is a murder, exciting car chases, and a climactic showdown on the Outer Banks.

Local author's debut novel.

The author is very knowledgeable about the Middle East and currently spends part of the year in Big Canoe and the other part in the Florida Panhandle.
