Peter G. Pollak’s thriller depicts how the Palestinian-Israeli war could bring dire consequences to America

ELKRIDGE, MD – December 18, 2014 – House Divided, Peter G. Pollak’s 88,000-word thriller, is now available for pre-order purchase on Although fiction, this novel paints a very real picture of the devastating impact that the Palestinian-Israeli war could bring to America’s shores.

House Divided depicts my genuine concern about terrorists using naïve young people to achieve their goal of undermining this country’s support for Israel,” said Pollak. “It also shows how families can be torn asunder in a world where truth can be hard to come by.”

House Divided is Pollak’s fifth self-published novel. Review copies of House Divided will be available in mid January.

About the Nove

In House Divided, Leonard and Alison Robbins disagree about how big a mistake their college student daughter is making by joining the radical Students for Palestinian Justice (SPJ).

Alison Robbins believes Courtney needs to be allowed to make her own decisions, but retired CIA agent Leonard Robbins, who heads up a counterterrorism task force, fears she’s in over her head. Neither, however, foresees the very real danger their daughter faces. Anti-Israeli terrorists are recruiting SPJ members to bomb Jewish organizations and their sights are set on Courtney Robbins.

If Courtney doesn’t see the truth in time, it will be up to her parents to stop the terrorists before their daughter becomes their latest victim.

About the Author

Peter G. Pollak is a native of Gloversville, NY. He has been an educator, journalist, and entrepreneur.

As a teenager Pollak envisioned writing novels, but other than take a creative writing elective as an undergraduate, did nothing to act on that desire. At times he would get an idea for a story and would spend a few hours putting words on paper, later storing chapters on his computer. When he stopped working fulltime a few years ago, Pollak wondered whether any of those fragments were worth trying to finish.

After reviewing several of those partial stories, Pollak made a commitment to himself to finish The Expendable Man, which appeared in 2011. Making the Grade followed in the spring of 2012; Last Stop on Desolation Ridge was published in January 2013 and In the Grade in November 2013.
