    Just finished the jam-packed action that is "American Terrorist: Where is the Girl?", and though I am not the average thriller type of gal, I have to say that Poston's novel hit the spot for an awesome page-turner. "American Terrorist: Where is the Girl?" took me on an intriguing ride through the mind of a father who found himself with nothing left to lose, who through his journey for vengeance, finds a cause larger than himself that he is willing to champion.

I won't give away plot points and spoilers, but Poston's novel is a great read. It opens the door to a series that will absolutely leave the reader begging for more. If you are looking for action, subterfuge, danger, scheming, and a protagonist that isn't your typical muscle-bound twenty-something, look no further. "American Terrorist: Where is the Girl?" is now the starting point for your journey.

    This book started out running and never stopped. It is fast paced, thrilling, and keeps you guessing at Carl's next move. The author lets you into the mind of Carl. What if this happened to me? If I was in his place, I wonder if I could do what he did. I recieved this book through a Goddreads giveaway. The opinions are my own.

    As an African-American man, Carl Johnson had previously hassled by the cops, so he thought he understood racial profiling. But, when the daughter of a high-profile figure is kidnapped and government authorities who have the incident on tape identify Carl as one of the kidnappers, a nightmare begins that he’s afraid he might never awake from. Carl has the misfortune of being an exact double of a notorious drug dealer who was involved in the kidnapping.

But, when the daughter of a high-profile figure is kidnapped and government authorities who have the incident on tape identify Carl as one of the kidnappers, a nightmare begins that he’s afraid he might never awake from. Carl has the misfortune of being an exact double of a notorious drug dealer who was involved in the kidnapping. Agents from a shadowy counter-terrorism arrest Carl and subject him to eleven days of torture designed to break mind, spirit and body. But, their plans backfire. Although somewhat broken in body, Carl finds within himself a reserve of strength that he never knew he possessed. Then his torturers make a deadly mistake—actually two—they let him go, and then they run an operation that gets his son, Mark, killed. Now, Carl has two aims in life: the first is to get the people who took everything from him; the second comes later—he will find the missing girl and return her to her family. His initial success in striking back at his tormentors earns him the title, ‘The American Terrorist,’ not a sobriquet that’s a guarantee for a long life. There are some books that you should never start reading unless you’re sure you have time to finish them. American Terrorist: Where is the Girl? By Jeffrey Poston is one of them. I started this book last night at 9:00 pm, thinking I’d read a couple of hours, put it away, and finish it today. I reached the last sentence at 1:00 am—unaware of the passage of time. Great writing. Characters come alive, reaching out from the page and smacking you on the kisser. Dialogue is so realistic you can feel the spittle spraying your face as they sputter. And, the descriptions are so vivid, you smell the sweat of fear. Within an expertly crafted adventure/thriller is also a discourse on government over-reach, the arrogance of power, and the dangers of using what our government euphemistically calls ‘enhanced’ interrogation techniques – in other words, torture. Not only does it risk damaging the mind and body of the victim, but it serves to dehumanize the one who applies it—and it makes more enemies, at a time when they are definitely not needed. This was book number one of two, and I’m planning to read two as well. Just one question: will there be a number three?

    Best book I've read in several months. Action-packed book that is riveting. This was far better than many books that I've paid $10-12 for. You'll definitely get your money's worth, not to mention the entertainment value. Highly recommended.

    Stick with the mission. The way it's written, you could almost swear he went through this. The details are great, the idea behind this was great. Plus the ending was perfect, or about as perfect as you can get.

    I thoroughly enjoyed American Terrorist: Where is the Girl? and was fully engaged from the opening sentence. The story is about Carl Johnson, a black man, who is seen on the street in New Mexico, was beaten and kidnapped, then tortured for the next 11 days by the CIA. All because he is a dead ringer for a Mexican drug lord who had kidnapped a high ranking government official's daughter. The CIA wants her back and they are confident of breaking the man and extracting the location of the girl.The I thoroughly enjoyed American Terrorist: Where is the Girl? and was fully engaged from the opening sentence.

The CIA wants her back and they are confident of breaking the man and extracting the location of the girl.The government finally concedes that they made a mistake and let Carl go. They should have killed him, instead. The torture had changed the man and now all he wants is revenge, and of course, to find out who the girl is and find her. Carl's crusade turns vindictive when the government uses his son as bait to catch the drug lord; he is ultimately killed by government agents during the raid. So much goes on during this story that it's hard to put down. When Carl finds out the girl's identity - only rescuing her will make things right again. However, he wasn't ready for an elaborate trap that was set-up for him. Carl receives a large sum of money and buys his own Army to deal with this new threat. Highly recommended! Great job Mr. Poston...downloading the next book in the series.

    When the FBI is after the kidnapper of a high-profile girl, they think they have him. Carl Johnson, a black American without any criminal records, a model citizen, is caught and brought to an interrogation center at a secret location, where operators torture Johnson for eleven days to retrieve thelocation of the missing girl. Carl Johnson, however, doesn't break way beyond the points where other people would have in these circumstances. The impact of the torture and the FBI invoked shooting of When the FBI is after the kidnapper of a high-profile girl, they think they have him. Carl Johnson, a black American without any criminal records, a model citizen, is caught and brought to an interrogation center at a secret location, where operators torture Johnson for eleven days to retrieve the location of the missing girl. Carl Johnson, however, doesn't break way beyond the points where other people would have in these circumstances. The impact of the torture and the FBI invoked shooting of his son Mark, is life-changing. Labeled as the American Terrorist, Johnson decides to take revenge on a multiple target mission. He knows that he hasn't the resources (money, staff, weaponry, etc.) the FBI can rely on. In Where is the Girl?, the first instance of the book series American Terrorist, you will be angry and compassionate, smarter than the U.S. government employees stuck in a tunnel vision, and in favor of the one man against the rest heroic Carl Johnson. Jeffrey Poston mixes recent shootings, racial profiling with a lot of plot twists, narrow escapes, and very detailed descriptions of tortures, communications, and power play at the federal institutions, and the mental processes of the victim turned into an oppressor.

    Oh my goodness, what an AMAZING STORY! I for one don't want to be on Carl's mad list! Mistakenly identified for Alfonso Reyes the Mexican drug lord, Carl Johnson is tortured about a missing girl. With eleven days of brutal torture no man should be able to endure, Carl STILL has no clue who the Feds are talking about. I liked Carl as when his dream would never come true that he didn't get him down. I didn't like how brutal and inhumane and the action the author penned the violence, but in today's Oh my goodness, what an AMAZING STORY! I for one don't want to be on Carl's mad list!

    Loved the American Terrorist. Excellent story plot. Makes you feel like it is a true story. It has a lot of twists and turns. You never know how far a person will go when you mess with their children. I am looking forward to starting the second book of the series.

    Once you're a couple chapters in, you can't put the book down. J.Poston, a master storyteller, grabs you by the jugular and forces you into Carl Johnson's skin, and you live the hero's experiences without taking a break or missing a page. This is a great read with enough unpredictability and surprises, the main character that's a living, breathing man a reader can identify with, an absence of the cautious moralizing so prevalent in the today's American novel, and the style of writing that Once you're a couple chapters in, you can't put the book down.
