Surface Tension by Mike Mullin

He races bikes and is doing very well at it.  That means he practices a lot and he has several routes he takes.  He sure never expected to run into a bunch of trucks on the back road he was on.  What's worse is he saw something they didn't want him to.  He's hurt, left for dead, but survives.  That's not the end of them trying to murder him...

Tanglewood and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 8th.

What's most terrifying about this story is that the terrorists are home grown.  They come from all walks of life including the cops and the FBI.  How they can stay hidden is by killing anyone with knowledge and that's why they are after him.  It doesn't matter that he has amnesia and can't remember what happened.

They are young and old and in between.  One of them uses his daughter at the beginning.  Then he uses some young men.  He even gets involved himself.  But he doesn't realize the teens are not dumb and they know how to fight back.

This is a tense read with a lot of drama.  Some of the players end up dead, but not all.  There will be more in this series.  Mr. Mullin makes you sit up straight and keep reading.  He's real good at scaring you with situations that could possibly become real.  I hope not.
