The end game: an attack in Jacksonville, Florida to show that no city is out of reach of Al-Queda.Parker Glynn, a man who has lost his wife, child and even his will to live when the twin towers fell, finds that fate has given him one last chance at redemption.Will he be able to save his country, his love…and his own eternal soul?Reviews“R.P. Whittington’s protagonist, Parker Glynn, is a thirty-something computer genius and entrepreneurial type who loses his wife and daughter in the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Set in the months immediately following September 11, Glynn tries to free himself from the survivor’s guilt and depression he’s suffered since the attack on the U.S. He becomes an unlikely hero who is instrumental in stopping a second deadly attack by terrorists.Of special interest to Best Southwest readers, protagonist Glynn is a 1983 graduate of Duncanville High School who later graduates from S.M.U. Second Strike is a gripping story, with likeable people and some really bad villains, and it kept me up two nights in a row until I finally finished reading it. The author says, “On a secondary level, Parker Glynn personifies the U. S., how we reacted before and after 9/11.”As for Parker Glynn’s future, I hope we will see more of this “Duncanville boy-makes-good” in future novels. ”— Jo Ann Holt, Focus Daily News, Aug. 2, 2010“It’s shortly after 9/11, and another terrorist cell is preparing an attack on American soil. This time the target will be Jacksonville during the annual Florida-Georgia football game.First-time author R.P. Whittington has fashioned a fast-paced adventure story around a tragedy that has affected all our lives. By placing his novel in Jacksonville, he brings home the reality that we all could be victims of fanatical terrorists at any time.On the surface, this self-published novel has a satisfying plot. At times, it requires a major amount of suspension of disbelief.Despite its weaknesses, it is a true page-turner.”Lee Scott, Reviewer, The Florida Times Union (July 4, 2010)Its shortly after 9/11 and entrepreneur Parker Glynn finds refuge on the First Coast after losing his family in the terrorist attacks.
