Inhaltsangabe: A finely crafted suspense novel about heroism in everyday life, "Man of the Hour" is about a Brooklyn high school teacher who becomes famous for saving his students from a bomb. But when he becomes a suspect in the case, his life is turned upside down--and finding the real bomber appears to be his only way out.

Rezension: David Fitzgerald is a 40-year-old English teacher with the rare ability to reach at least some of his students at a poor high school in Coney Island. But one who he can't reach is Nasser Hamdy, a Palestinian boy so scarred by hate that he joins with terrorists to plant a bomb in a school bus. A combination of accident and courage turns Fitzgerald into a media hero when he keeps most of his class from boarding the bus and then risks his life to rescue a pregnant teenager who got on early. But circumstantial factors quickly turn the tide and make Fitzgerald a prime suspect in the bombing. He is savaged by the system but never officially accused.

Blauner does everything well, from creating compelling scenes of urban terror, to making us believe in Fitzgerald as a gifted teacher, loving father, and exhausted husband. Blauner's background as a journalist also makes the media reaction within the story instantly credible--humanizing at least one member of the ravening media rat pack.

Catch Blauner's two previous thrillers: Slow Motion Riot and The Intruder, both available in paperback. --Dick Adler
