A novel can present a puzzle but be written in an intelligent manner which compels the reader's attention immediately. Steve O'Brien's "Redemption Day," fits this category. Supreme Court Justice Silvio Caprelli is kidnapped by a group of right wing militarists called Posse Comitatus. This group is intent on creating a massive incident that will lead to reshaping the United States.

Nick James had been a terrorism analysist for the Department of Homeland Security. Just prior to the kidnapping, Nick is fired.

Nick is called by a co-worker that a sheriff from West Virginia remembered him from a seminar and wanted to meet. They agree to meet at Nick's home where the sheriff had information to share. However, Nick arrives to find the sheriff shot dead in front of Nick's home with Nick's weapon, making him the lead suspect. He feels that he has a better chance to prove his innocence if he investigates things himself so goes into hiding.

Tension mounts as the story moves back and forth from the members of this group to Nick and the officials trying to stop them. As Nick follows a lead into West Virginia the kidnappers become alerted about him. This has Nick being sought by the officials and kidnappers. It's always a noble thought to see what one man can do when faced with tremendous odds.

The action is well described and as we read of the terrorists closing in on their success, the author provides scenes with excellent cinimatic effects that are powerful enough to have us put the novel aside momentarily, just to contemplate.

Overall a wonderful novel with excellent, well developed characters and a compelling plot.
