Product Description

"Terror is a masterful portrait of the hard decisions and harder lives that must be lived during a dark time in American history – the present." - SPR Review

Have you ever felt that society consciously tries to undermine you?

In a society where everyone strives for growth, where everyone tries to build towards the heavens, there are some who wish to bring it plummeting down.

Terror is a thriller in which three people from different walks of life find a common enemy in the contemporary world. Yet, unlike most, they decide to do something about it.

Milton Haynes, a military man, is forced to see a psychiatrist following a fellow soldier’s death as he waits to appeal his dishonourable discharge. Ally Winston, one year after being viciously assaulted, struggles to slot into the life her father has laid out for her, while Nestor Frings returns to Boston to find his parents have sold their home due to financial issues.

The three initially voice their pains through non-violent means, however, they soon find their efforts futile. In a world where outsiders are considered dangerous and are not to be trusted, it will be the insiders who do the damage. Follow Milton, Ally and Nestor as they come to, what they perceive to be, the inevitable conclusion: they must commit a terror attack.

SPR Review

Author Eamonn Hickson brings the fascinating, dingy, and complex streets of Boston alive in his new novel Terror, a probing novel of survival in the modern world.

In the uncertainty of a post-9/11 America, issues of patriotism and racism mesh every day with issues of unemployment, poverty, and rising crime rates. In the harsh streets of Boston, the eternal struggle between money, power, and influence are displayed in a microcosmic story that is beautifully told. Seemingly disparate characters come together and begin to overlap – from would-be bank robbers to dishonored heroes – which packs this urban tale with intention and meaning.

Surviving in the modern world is never easy, but for Ally, Nestor, Milton, and the rest of the fascinating cast of characters, survival is often a daily struggle. They find ways to be heard and seek meaning in their own lives, as well as hope for justice in a world that threatens to crumble into chaos around them, pushing them to the absolute breaking point, and pushing the reader into examining their own sense of morality and justice.

With vivid descriptions and intensely emotional characterization, Terror is a masterful portrait of the hard decisions and harder lives that must be lived during a dark time in American history – the present.
