Clark Hayden is a graduate student trying to help his mother navigate through the loss of his father while she continues to live in their house near Washington DC. With his mother’s diminishing mental capacity becoming the norm, Clark expects a certain amount of craziness as he heads home for the holidays. What he couldn’t possibly anticipate, though, is that he would find himself catapulted into the middle of a terrorist operation. As the holiday festivities reach a crescendo, a terrorist cell – which happens to be across the street – is activated. Suddenly Clark is discovering things he never knew about deadly chemicals, secret government operations, suspiciously missing neigh- bors, and the intentions of a gorgeous IRS auditor. Clark’s quiet suburban neighborhood is about to become one of the most deadly places on the planet, and it’s up to Clark to prevent the loss of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in the nation’s capital.

Love thy Neighbor is a very enjoyable read, it is well written and thought out story. 

Clark is a grad student from Virginia Tech, moving back home to take care of his mother. He is your friendly neighbor who helps where ever he can. And the nieghbors have helped out with his mom. But how well does he actually know his neighbors and can they be thrusted?

That is the scary part about this story everybody knows eachother and they help out where they can, they are being good neighbors and looking out foor eachother, but are they really who they say they are? 

The story is told from different points of view and this with the very detailed writing gives a very good overview of everything that is going on without giving away everything right away. There are a lot of characters in this story, but they all serve their purpose in this story. 

This is not a fast paced story and to be honost it started of a bit slow and it took me a while to finish it, but Gilleo's writing and the intriguing story makes you pick the book up everytime and keeps you reading. 

My rating: 3/5
