About the Author

Andrew Welsh-Huggins is a reporter for the Associated Press in Columbus, Ohio, and the Nero Award-finalist author of six mysteries from Swallow Press featuring Andy Hayes, a former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns quarterback turned private eye. Welsh-Huggins is also the editor of Columbus Noir (Akashic Books) and his short fiction has appeared in publications including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Mystery Weekly, and Mystery Tribune. His nonfiction book No Winners Here Tonight (Ohio University Press) is the definitive history of the death penalty in Ohio.


"In Hatred at Home, Andrew Welsh-Huggins captures the unease in our backyards.... He objectively explores the nature of the nation's new and incredibly difficult balancing act--providing federal agents with the investigative and legal tools needed to prevent another 9/11, while still trying to safeguard long-cherished civil rights."--The Columbus Dispatch
"Unlike most such narratives, which limit themselves to legal issues, Hatred at Home shows readers the conspirators as they are radicalized.... This short book is the most thorough case study of the radicalization of domestic 'sleeper cells' to date."--Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries
"(Welsh-Huggins's) book provides no easy answers but does raise serious questions with repercussions far beyond Ohio. Rights and freedom, the hallmarks of American life, are among the elements at risk when fighting terrorists, who themselves are out to nullify them."--Cincinnati CityBeat
"The September 11 attacks changed plenty of things in our daily lives, from being afraid to open letters for fear of anthrax to having to remove our shoes before we get on airplanes. They changed a lot in law, too, as Associated Press reporter Andrew Welsh-Huggins explains in Hatred at Home: Al-Qaida on Trial in the American Midwest. "--Akron Beacon Journal
