“The Long Way Home” by Andrew Klavan is a fictional story about a young man who is on the run from both the Police and a terrorist group called the Homelanders. This is the second book in the series, but I was happy to find that you didn’t need to read the first book to enjoy the second. The book is directed toward teens, but as an adult I found it very enjoyable. It has a fast-moving plot and some exciting twists and turns. The author takes you on Charlie West’s fearful and action-packed journey to find who really killed his best friend…a crime that he has been wrongfully accused of. Charlie goes back to his hometown where he meets up with several of his closest friends who could be in danger when they try to help him find the real killer. He is shocked to find that the master-mind of the Homelanders group is someone he knows very well and tries to gather evidence against him. In the end he has to save his girlfriend from this killer, is wounded in the fight, and is once again on the run. It leaves you wanting to read Book #3! I recommend this book for teens or adults.
