James Hockenberry - Over Here

Signed First Edition

The action moves from New York Harbor and across to Manhattan to the power centers of Washington and Berlin. Cops from New York City's elite Bomb Squad chase German saboteurs achieve their greatest success when they blow up Black Tom Island, a major munitions depot behind the Statue of Liberty. The action culminates when they attack Wall Street in a desperate attempt to terrorize and destroy America's financial center.

Over Here draws parallels to 9/11 and other events in the contemporary war on terror, while describing crucial but little-known aspects of U.S. involvement in World War I.
