The Bomb Maker’s Son

Bomb Makers Son_cover finalAttorney Parker Stern’s estranged mother, the enigmatic leader of the cultish Church of the Sanctified Assembly, shows up unannounced and asks him to represent a man named Ian Holzner—better known as the Playa Delta Bomber. In 1975, Holzner allegedly planted a bomb that killed four people. He’s been a fugitive from justice ever since, but now apparently wants to turn himself in. At first, Parker refuses to take on the case. But then Parker’s mother reveals a startling secret that all but forces him, against his better judgment, to represent the fugitive.
The reemergence of the Playa Delta Bomber after years in hiding creates media attention. Then another “Holzner bomb” explodes and other violent acts of domestic terror mount. Is Holzner the mastermind behind these crimes?
At great personal risk, Parker gradually uncovers the truth about these terrorist attacks; at the same time, he discovers long-hidden, painful realities about both his family and his own past.
