Juvenile suspense

I previously noted this review at Christianity Today of Andrew Klavan's Homelanders books:
I shudder to think of all the books occasioned by the 10th anniversary of 9/11. I won't read most of them, but I did make time for The Final Hour, the concluding installment in Andrew Klavan's four-book Homelanders series, in which Islamic terrorists seek to wreak havoc. The teenage hero, Charlie West, is a winsome Christian and a pretty tough customer. In publishing jargon, this is Young Adult fiction (in the subdivision known as "boy books"), but the unadulterated intelligence of a superb suspense novelist is very much in evidence throughout.
I thoroughly enjoyed these books as they were published and they definitely would have hooked me when I was in the target audience. They are now available combining the four books in a single volume paperback and as a Kindle edition.
