The Hero by Menno Meyjes
Hero, The

Hero, The

After a woman suddenly finds herself involved in a series of violent attacks she realizes she needs to unravel her father’s past in order to neutralize this threat.

Sara Silverstein, who has just moved back from LA with her family, has never had to deal with violence before and is therefore devastated when her son signs up for the US marines. When she is assaulted by a stranger,  and soon after when her family is involved in a violent burglary, she feels very threatened. Could this have anything to do with her father’s secretive war history? Sara is forced to unravel her father’s past, to find out who is haunting them, and at the same time must find a way to keep her family together.
