Ten years deep inside
Al-Qaeda. Still not trusted
by the CIA.
The Faithful Spy by Alex Berenson tells the first tale in the saga of John Wells, a CIA deep cover field operative who infiltrated Al-Qaeda years before 9-11. But now that the terrorists have deadly plans for the continental United States his bosses at the CIA aren't sure he hasn't gone native or been doubled.
Where's the faith? His conversion to Islam hasn't helped his case although he himself struggles with its meaning. Even Wells' Al-Qaeda boss isn't 100% convinced of his loyalty. Only one person is on his side - his handler. And she's gonna get a lot closer to the action than her desk.
This is the second of Berenson's Wells novels that I've read and he's a solid addition to my cadre of military-espionage thrillers.
