shortly after 9/11.Once in Chicago, they become what Western intelligence agencies have labeled Nike terrorists. Rather than trying to pull off the next 9/11, they merely start indiscriminately killing Westerners with small arms and simple explosives.But they do have a grander plan in mind. Theres just one thing that stands in their way: Firefighter Nick Mattera. A former Marine EOD Tech, Nick Mattera is a firefighter in the predominantly Italian-American enclave of Highwood on Chicagos North Side.

And Nicks fighting a war on two fronts: A local congressman is trying to close the Highwood Fire Department to win re-election, and Abdullah and Jhalil have chosen Nicks fire district to target wealthy Jews.Soft Target weaves together these seemingly disparate story lines into a compelling narrative that includes action, adventure, romance and real-life firefighting. Soft Target is a work of fiction, but at the end readers are left terrified, wondering Why hasnt this happened here?Soft Target is a familiar genre but with a unique hero. Nick Mattera is a firefighter paramedic and author Mark Yost, himself a firefighter/paramedic on Chicagos North Side, has painted a vivid picture of what its like to respond to fire and EMS calls everyday -- and the very real budget challenges that face fire departments across the country.Soft Target is destined to be a hit, with fans of such espionage masters as Clancy and Le Carre, as well as anyone who admires the everyday work of real firefighters and paramedics.
