He Has Neighbors

As if that isn’t enough distraction, Walter discovers that (1) his landlord neighbors have some nasty secrets that have led them to hide out in the U.S. Federal Witness Security Program; (2) a new group of Muslims has taken up residence less than an hour away, at a ranch near Bly, Oregon, where there had been a jihad training center in 1999; and (3) a contingent from the local ‘Jefferson State Militia’ is preparing to engage the Muslims at a moment’s notice. This diverse cast, plus a few US Marshalls, eventually converges at Walter’s hideaway, thrusting him into the unwelcome role of peacemaker. The outcome is a surprise for all parties concerned.
