Product Description

Matt Hogan loves being an undercover FBI agent almost as much as he loves his wife, Caitlin. But when the daring-some would say reckless-G-Man totals two vehicles in his Beverly Hills pursuit of a fleeing Arab drug runner, he incurs the wrath of the Bureau's hierarchy. To avoid almost-certain suspension, he accepts a new assignment to track terrorist cell groups while posing as a volunteer at World Angel Clinic, a Christian ministry reaching out to injured Third World children. What Matt doesn't know is that the ripples of danger from this case will threaten not only his and Caitlin's life and happiness, but also the safety and security of the entire nation.

Publisher's Description

When undercover FBI agent Matt Hogan totals three vehicles in an out-of-policy Beverly Hills pursuit of a fleeing Arab drug runner, he incurs the wrath of the Bureau hierarchy. To avoid an almost certain suspension, he accepts a new assignment tracking terrorist cell groups while posing as a volunteer at a nonprofit charity. What he doesn't know is the ripples of danger from this case will threaten not only his life but the safety and security of the entire nation.

"A page-turning roller coaster that feels like Jack Bauer's 24 without sailing over the top."

Publishers Weekly

"Bob Hamer's debut novel delivers realism only an undercover FBI agent can bring. Enemies Among Us will grab you from word one and stay with you long after you've read the last evocative page. Mitch Rapp has a new friend in the world of fictional heroes, FBI Special Agent Matt Hogan."

Vince Flynn, New York Times #1 best-selling author

"Knowing Hamer 'walked the talk' as an FBI undercover agent gives this thriller a genuine edge that rings like a struck bell."

Kevin Sorbo, producer/director and star of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda

"Hamer brings a realism to his writing few authors can."

Karri Turner, actress from the CBS series JAG and recipient of the 2009 USO "Heart of a Patriot" Award

* Winner of the San Diego Christian Writers Guild "Best Fiction Award"


The hero of this story is a twenty-six year street agent of the FBI. During his storied career he has worked undercover helping rid the world of drug dealers, pedophiles, and contract killers. Before that he was both a Marine and a law school graduate. Did I leave out anything? Oh yes – Bob Hammer isn’t even a character in Enemies among Us; he is the author! Hammer’s personal knowledge of how the FBI works and the very real war on terror since 9/11 shines through in every single page of this thriller from Fidelis Books, the new imprint of B&H Publishing.

Now to the hero of the novel: Matt Hogan is a man’s man fighting a very unconventional war on the streets of Los Angeles. He is street smart, committed, and also has a penchant for getting in trouble with his superiors. When he wrecks a bureau provided Harley while pursuing an Arab drug runner Hogan ends up undercover at a charity medical clinic. First convinced he is chasing shadows in a dead-end assignment he realizes something is being planned by someone using the charity as a front. But who? If you want the answer to that you’ll have to get the book. Matt Hogan is the kind of hero faith-based fiction so desperately needs. He is a real man. Hogan’s wife is a believer that loves her husband and gently nudges him in the right direction. He is a devoted husband that worships his wife but is yet to be persuaded to follow her path. Hogan has real emotions. There’s nothing sugar coated about him or this story. The battle to thwart the attempts of terrorist cells to carry out Jihad once again on the West isn’t pretty and won’t be won with flowery speeches or good intentions and our hero knows that too well.

Bob Hammer does a great job of presenting intense action, hard boiled dialogue, and not-so-nice realities without dragging the reader through Hollywood’s usual stereotypical language and gore. He proves it requires being far more creative as a writer to paint the indelible image of evil without warping the reader’s mind at the same time. He never once uses one of George Carlin’s famous seven banned words yet leaves the reader with no doubt what the stresses of this war can do to even to the best of the good guys. We also aren’t given paper cut out bad guys. Some are driven by ideology, some by fear of what will happen to their families in other countries, and some are only bad by association. In fact, even our main character is surprised by who comes to his aid along the way.

The author weaves the story of Matt Hogan’s wife, her faith, and the demons of his past masterfully into the tapestry of the novel without seeming forced. Undercover activities against terrorism and a child having heavenly visions don’t seem a fit but in Enemies among Us it all makes perfect sense – a testament to the power of this author’s voice. I can’t express enough that this is how faith-based fiction ought to be written. The characters act like people in the real world. Though much of the mainstream media ignores it, in the real world some people are kind, some are evil, some have a deep faith in God, and some have lost their way. In the real world those people walk the streets together, work together, and at times are thrown into horrible situations together. For our hero it is in such a situation he at last finds answers, or at least the hope of answers, to the sleeper cell within his own heart. - Tim George, FictionAddict.com

Author Bio

Bob Hamer spent twenty-six years as a street agent for the FBI, often in an undercover capacity posing as a drug dealer, pedophile, or contract killer in order to arrest some of the world’s most hardened criminals. Now retired and having received the FBI Director’s Award for Distinguished Service, Bob is a member of the Writers Guilds of America and Canada and has consulted for television shows including Law & Order: SVU and Sleeper Cell. Also a Marine Corps veteran and law school graduate, Hamer lives with his wife and children in California.

Publishers Weekly

Novels about undercover FBI agents nabbing terrorists are more credible when written by former FBI agents. Hamer's nearly three decades as a street agent gives weight to this thriller about erstwhile reckless agent Matt Hogan's redemption with the agency, his wife, and guilt-ridden past. In order to save his job, Hogan must leave his dangerous operations and infiltrate a Christian hospital, which he sees as a red herring to get him off the streets. But as the hospital is suspected of helping terrorists, Hogan has never had a more important assignment. Beyond thriller-speed action, the author includes references to Osama bin Laden, reflections on the difference between guilt and shame societies, and just enough hot married love for Christian fiction. Suspense is often pre-empted by unnecessary spoilers in the middle of the action: “Fate was about to confront the team.” Otherwise few flaws mar what is a page-turning roller coaster that feels like Jack Bauer's 24 without sailing over the top. Stereotype-bending dialogue and believable characters elicit fear of evil and call forth hope that good exists in all ethnicities and religions. (Mar.)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
