Enemies of Peace literally starts with a bang: an explosion captured by two teenage girls of a house engulfed in flames. In the summer that led up to the explosion, the Hydroline Corporation hired Timothy Lawson and his firm to represent them in a class-action lawsuit. While juggling his caseload, he and his wife Cynthia decide to buy their first house. It should have been the happiest summer of their lives. Nevertheless, their date with death was looming.
Who could have possibly done it? Could it be the corporation that Timothy was defending, did he uncover one secret too many? Could it be the cousin that Cynthia has forbidden Timothy to talk with anymore? Could it be the other man who is in love with Cynthia, his jealous rage driving him to kill? Or, could it be the quiet neighbors next door, the unsuspecting extremists living in American suburban splendor?
Such a suspenseful and unique story
“I loved this book! It was one of those reads that made me stay up way too late for several nights in a row because I wanted to find out how it would end. The characters were so real to me by the middle of the story that I could picture both couples and their neighboring homes. Most of us will identify with one or the other, and maybe even consider making some changes in our spending habits. Such a suspenseful and unique story! Five stars!!” – Amazon Review
Gripping page turner (for Michael Crichton fans!)
“Enemies of Peace is an insightful look into the psychological trauma that so often results from money and perception of success. The characters are richly developed and vary in their individual desires, which Williams takes great care to address in meticulous detail (the beautifully manicured fingernails of the status-hungry Cynthia; the sparse furnishings in the house of Cynthia’s frugal next door neighbors).
This is a fantastic novel for a rainy day, the beach, or any other concentrated period of time that will afford you the opportunity to tear through it, since the plot builds in intensity until the climactic end.” – Amazon Review
