For years UN peacekeepers have been deployed to war-torn regions of the world, from Rwanda to Serbia, Congo to East Timor. Now it's America's turn. Samuel Simpson is a young, idealistic journalist from Canada, and seeking adventure, volunteers to become a records-keeper for a UN war-crimes investigation team at work in upper New York State. Months earlier, a crippling terrorist attack against the United States resulted in its cities emptied, its countryside set afire, and its government shaken to its knees. In the aftermath of this attack, a virtual civil war broke out, until UN peacekeepers arrived to establish an uneasy peace. While Samuel and his team travel through the New York countryside, searching for evidence of an atrocious war, he quickly realizes that death is quick to strike from any farmhouse, road corner or rest area. Even more chillingly, he begins to suspect that there is a traitor in his team, trying not only to conceal evidence of this war crime, but working to betray and kill them all ... Twilight is a gripping and shocking 'what-if' thriller from the master of the genre; it is a truly unforgettable read.
