Seattle, 2040. The Space Needle lies crumpled. Veiled women hurry through the busy streets. Alcohol is outlawed, replaced by Jihad Cola, and mosques dot the skyline. New York and Washington, D.C., are nuclear wastelands. Phoenix is abandoned, Chicago the site of a civil war battle. At the edges of the empire, Islamic and Christian forces fight for control of a very different United States. Enormous in scope and brilliantly imagined, Prayers for the Assassin promises to be the powerhouse listen of the year. Burning with cinematic violence, fiendish betrayal, and global intrigue, Robert Ferrigno's sensational thriller asks: What would happen to America if the terrorists won?
After simultaneous suitcase-nuke attacks destroy New York, Washington, D.C., and Mecca, attacks blamed on Israel, a civil war breaks out. An uneasy truce leaves the nation divided between an Islamic republic with its capital in Seattle, and the Christian Bible Belt in the old South. In this frightening future there are still Super Bowls and Academy Awards, but calls to Muslim prayer echo in the streets and terror is everywhere. Freedom is controlled by the state, paranoia rules, and rebels plot to regain free will.
"Fans of instapundit politics will love this thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"Ferrigno deserves props for his imaginative portrayal of a futuristic America." (Booklist)

An excellent thriller
A waste of time
A better story. Better Narration. Better characters.
What genre is this? A ridiculous story with life after an Islamic takeover of the USA, as a backdrop, with gratuitous sex in an unlikely romance and a plot to takeover an unrealistic government by an octogenarian?
I normally enjoy Armand Schultz as a narrator. This was not one of his better readings. The characters were weak and irritating.
Disappointment and laughter at the ridiculous premise, a thin and very predictable plot and unbelievably lame characters.
The story might have been better without the poorly-pictured takeover of the USA by Muslims as a background. This could have been a good intel thriller under another scenario.
