The only American ever to crack al Qaeda, John Wells has been undercover so long that the CIA is no longer sure he’s loyal – or even alive. Now, on the orders of Omar Khadri – the mastermind spearheading al Qaeda´s attacks on America – Wells is coming home. And neither Khadri nor Jennifer Exley, Wells’s boss at Langley, knows what to expect.
During his years in the mountains, Wells has become a Muslim and begun to doubt the American Agenda. He is a man alone, and the CIA is unable to trust him. Only Exley believes in him. But as Khadri moves closer to unleashing the most devastating terrorist attack in history, Wells and Exley know they must stop him, with or without the CIA’s approval.
