“Don’t go.”

That simple entreaty, uttered by a woman whose husband is leaving for Afghanistan, lays the foundation for Lisa Scottoline‘s new novel.

After a huge earthquake devastates Afghanistan, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Michael Parson is dispatched, to help distribute aid, and to assist U.S. and Afghan forces in their task, in the new Tom Young thriller “The Renegades.”

But Parson runs into trouble right away, as there are hostile forces in Afghanistan that don’t want any American aid getting anywhere near anybody – and they’ll kill, to achieve that aim.

Parson is joined by interpreter, Sergeant Major Sophia Gold in what looks like a near-impossible task – keep the earthquake aid flowing, keep the troops safe, and stay alive.

Why do so many of the world’s Muslims hate America? Indian-born, Pakistani-raised journalist Irfan Husain uses that simple but plaintive question as the jumping off point for his new book “Fatal Faultlines.” Indeed, Husain takes the question and runs with it, unafraid of offending either the West or the Muslim community in exposing the misconceptions each harbors about the other.

Irfan  Husain

Husain says if we can agree there are at least two sides to every disagreement, the least we need to be able to do is understand the mindset of people whose hearts and mind have been lost by the West and the United States.

Not long after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, a small band of U.S. Special Forces soldiers secretly entered Afghanistan. Their mission: to seek out, pursue, and fight the Taliban. But as journalist Doug Stanton writes, these soldiers — outnumbered as much as forty to one — rode to war on horseback. Stanton’s book is called “Horse Soldiers.”
