I've been thinking about writing a science fiction novel in which the main character is evil throughout most of the book. Here's a summary of the story so you can tell what I mean by evil. The time period is a few decades from now, based in the United States. America has experienced another terrorist attack on it's territory, and this time it is catastrophic. Because of this, the government has segregated non-Muslim Americans from the Muslim Americans. A Muslim boy, who is of Northern European ancestry(with blonde hair, blue eyes), wants to work to end the segregation. His mentor, who is a Muslim man who preaches peace and reconciliation is assassinated by the government. The boy who is devasted, meets an extremist Muslim who teaches him a false version of Islam and he eventually becomes a terrorist as a result of this. After years of training, he enters the non-Muslim city through covert means and conducts terrorist operations. Meanwhile, there's a huge investigation to find him. Since he is White, and he has forged documents, the investigators cannot tell automatically that he's Muslim. He is eventually captured and informed that it was the extremist group he's a member of that actually assassinated his mentor, because they didn't want to end the violence. The main character then has a change of heart and wants to make up for his past actions by bringing down the terrorist network. With the aid of the government, he accomplishes this, and brings the top members to trial. He is assassinated before he can testify at the trial however. So, do you guys think that a story like that could work? Or would you be able to read it because the main character is a terrorist throughout most of it? Keep in mind also that I'm a Muslim, so I'm not trying to attack Islam with this story. I have knowledge of Islam, and will portray it in an accurate manner, representing all viewpoints.
