Fearful Master by Arthur Lawrence feels more like a prediction of the near future when innocent Muslims will be punished for the crimes others did. The novel follows a Canadian Intelligence Analyst named Jason Currie, who is sent to America to represent his country and show their willingness to fight terrorism. He is to join a force named SECOR, a smarter and better version of Homeland Security. However, when he reaches America, he is taken to a secluded holding in the desert because his name was on a “list” and this is where he discovers the truth behind the SECOR façade.
He thought this would be a war against terrorism. But this turned out to be a war against innocent people who had nothing to do with being terrorists. People are being secluded from society on a mere hint of suspicion. Is this another holocaust? Is this right? Can Jason stop this wrong or will he fall prey to an extremist nation?
Fearful Master by Arthur Lawrence is a little controversial and scary, but it is scary because it rings with truth. This could indeed happen in the future. The way people treat all Muslims, innocent Muslims, things can turn bleak in a matter of seconds. The novel was written in a realistic manner, things were not sugar coated, and shown as they were. If there is violence, it is violent. Lawrence wrote a crisp text. You will not be able to stop once you begin, so be prepared for an all-nighter. A great novel written beautifully.
