A New York times> reporter 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. Alex Berenson's debut novel of suspense, The faithful spy, is a sharp, explosive story that takes readers inside the war on terror as fiction has never done before. John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. 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 malicious mastermind plotting more al Qaeda strikes on America - Wells is coming home. Neither Khadri nor Jennifer Exley, Wells' superior at Langley, knows quite what to expect. For Wells has changed during his years in the mountains. He has become a Muslim. He finds the United States decadent and shallow. Yet he hates al Qaeda and the way it uses Islam to justify its murderous assaults on innocents.

Must be the first I've read of AB & found it somewhat disturbing.

The Faithful Spy is the first in a series of novels featuring CIA agent John Wells who not only penetrated Al Qaeda but converted to Islam in the process. However, he isn’t trusted enough to share their secret plots. Hi s return to the US is part of terrorist plot that he has to unravel. Distrusted by both the terrorists and the CIA he has to stop an attack he knows is coming. This novel has plenty of action and has more depth than just a slam-bang thriller. An excellent read!
