About this title

Synopsis:

A story torn from today's headlines - New York Times reporter Alex Berenson has drawn upon his experience covering the occupation in Iraq to write the most gripping and chillingly plausible thriller of the post-9/11 era. The Faithful Spy is a sharp, explosive story by an author who truly knows his territory.

John Wells, the only American ever to penetrate al Qaeda, has been undercover so long that the CIA is no longer sure he's loyal - or even alive. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover. Now, on the orders of Omar Khadri - the mastermind spearheading al Qaeda attacks on America - Wells is coming home. Neither Khadri nor Jennifer Exley, Wells's CIA case officer, quite know what to expect.

During his years in the mountains, Wells has become a Muslim and begun to doubt the Americans' agenda. Yet he hates al Qaeda and the way it uses Islam to justify its murderous assaults on innocents. He is a man alone, and the CIA does not know whether to trust him. But as their high-tech intelligence gathering strategy fails and Khadri moves closer to unleashing the most devastating terrorist attack in history, Wells and Exley know they must find a way to stop him, with or without the government's approval.

Review:

"A thriller worthy of le Carré" (Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review))

"A well-crafted page-turner that addresses the most important issue of our time. It will keep you reading well into the night." (Vince Flynn)

"Berenson, a New York Times correspondent since 1999 who covered the occupation of Iraq, deftly employs the classic staples of spy fiction in his debut novel....mounting suspense, a believable scenario and a final twist add up to a compelling tale of frightening possibilities. It's not for the squeamish, though: the torture sequences and bombing descriptions are graphic and chillingly real." (Publishers Weekly)
