In Islam, there is the greater and the lesser Jihad. The greater is understood to be the fight against heresy. The lesser is the struggle within the self. U.S. Attorney Nathan Minnow and a government assassin move fatefully towards each other, engaged in jihad on both levels. Domestic terror, religious zeal, cosmic irony and a cast of unforgettables, all are deciphered and balanced skillfully in Alfredo Chandler's thought-provoking new thriller, Ima's War.
