In The Name of Peace is an intriguing novel in which anything can happen. Terrorism, espionage, and hacking are like an inexhaustible series of Russian dolls in this riveting story by Paul Sande. The FBI suspects Gerald Walsh, an alcoholic reporter, to be a terrorist and sends his daughter, Lavinia, to investigate him. In the meantime, two hackers disguised as the perfect neighbors are preparing a cyberattack with serious effects on every country, but on the United States in particular. Their connection with a casualty of the “system” makes this plan a lot more personal. At last, a group of terrorists is on its way to carry out the plan designed by bin Laden before his death.
This summary gives only a brief idea of the episodes, turns of events, and unexpected alliances of In the Name of Peace. Sande develops his narrative in an unforeseeable, captivating, and nonetheless clear way. The book seems to be over after some of the main events, but the end of the story is the beginning of something new. These “new” parts are always logical continuations, and in the end, every piece of the puzzle fits. Sande leads the reader to the end with masterly skill. Moreover, In the Name of Peace aims at criticizing the use and collection of personal data since 9/11. After reading this book, I wondered what would happen to our personal information if the government could not protect us. Definitely, In the Name of Peace is an outstanding novel and brings a serious matter to the reader’s attention.
