Read full description of the books The Terrorist:This book is taking paranoia to a new degree. An Australian Jewish family over the years has taken in foreign university students. The current student is a Muslim from Saudi Arabia. At the same time the 2006 Lebanon-Israel war breaks out. Ben Fine, the father, is obsessed with the war, the world's view of Jews and in his compulsion brings the war and chaos into his household via television, newspapers, the Internet and in his mind. The story is vivid, detailed and well written. The surprise ending however, seems abrupt and lacking in clarity compared to the earlier intense descriptiveness.

The other kidnapper, Stanley Jawitz, committed suicide while running from police.
