Lindbergs plan sequel to book about terrorism

Published 9:42am Thursday, August 21, 2014

A sequel is in the making to complete the fictional story of Post- 911 terrorist attacks on the U.S. as depicted in “Rise of The Red Crescent,” a paperback suspense novel written by Kitty Lindberg of Decatur and son Christopher Lindberg of Madison.

The Lindberg novel was inspired by a dream Christopher had after returning from the war in Iraq as an Army intelligence officer. Islamic radicals, aided by homegrown terrorists, launched armed attacks against four North American cities causing widespread death and destruction.

“He told me ‘we need to write a book to warn the American people of the danger they face from terrorists,’” Christopher’s mother stated. “My life changed at that moment. We sat down, developed an outline and I spent the next four years researching, traveling and developing characters for the story.”

Rather than bring the story to a climax, the authors left it open-ended with the “bad guy,” still on the loose.

“That’s where the sequel comes in,” Lindberg said. “It will complete the story and make the book more marketable for a movie script.”

The book is dedicated to all those who have served in the war on terror. A portion of its proceeds is being donated to the Wounded Warriors.

The book was published by Xulon Publishers and is available on Amazon and other books store websites.
