    Was he--or is he still--the man she fell in love with? Of course, in both narratives, the nature of the incident is explored as well, as readers will have many questions about what happened and why. Her certainty in his innocence slightly wavers as her recollections of her husband's behavior throughout their courtship and marriage are tested by recent memories of his drastically altered behavior and opinions. The investigation into the bombing moves at a rapid pace and the stunning announcemnt that Michael is Homeland Security's chief suspect in the bombing sends shock waves through Julia's family and their neighbors. Her eyes reddened as she looked away.

    Like most thrillers, The Real Michael Swann is an adrenaline rush. Thanks to the extensive media coverage, she has a general idea of his whereabouts and she recklessly tries to reach him before Homeland Security captures him. Part family drama, part tragic love story, and part disaster narrative that hits terrifyingly close to home, The Real Michael Swann is a deftly plotted suspense novel with an unflinching portrait of a marriage at its heart, challenging us to confront the unthinkable--both in our country and in our own homes. Were the sources credible?

    Just as he showed with his debut, Finding Jake, Bryan Reardon also understands the unique power and bond of family units. Maybe it would help. Julia leaned back and watched the children. Rather than focusing on the words on the page, I found myself racing through to find out what happened to Michael. Julia Swann. On the day it happened, she sat on her back porch with two neighbors, Evelyn and Tara.

Without using car chases or overt violence, Reardon keeps the suspense high. Most of the neighborhood knew that she and her family probably would have to move if her husband couldn't find a new job.

No one even seems to care that so many people are losing their jobs. Rather than feeling like intrusions into this tense modern-day scenario, these glimpses of domestic life serve to deepen the characterization of our main players and could easily succeed as a literary novella all on their own.

Could Michael's desperation have driven him to such an uncharacteristic act of domestic terrorism? I don't get it. Why are the police being so helpful? Was it easy to see where the author got his or her information? Why hasn't he contacted her?

Julia Swann is not overly concerned about the fact that her husband Michael's train from New York's Penn Station has been delayed. And I saw the ring on her finger, silver and simple. She wore a white tank top and capri pants, although it took me months to remember that was what they were called.

That is until she sits down to watch television with her sons. What similarities do these stories share? It's gripping, smart, and to-the-minute timely, with two memorable and powerfully sympathetic central characters. Were there points where you thought he shared too much? Then the news rolls in: A bomb has gone off at Penn Station, where Michael was waiting for a train home.
