好s, a Muslim convert who was the 上 ly American agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda, must 上 ce again reluctantly don the persona of al Qaeda jihadist, this time to infiltrate ISIS. The reason: someone high up in the CIA is passing important information to the Islamic State.
好’中央情报局的老同志Vinny Duto现在是POTUS，尽管他欣赏Duto挽救了生命的时间，但他没有’t trust the man. When 好s receives a mysterious phone call from a Bulgarian operative, he is made privy to a secret, U.S.-backed Bulgarian prison where suspected Muslim terrorists and ISIS operatives are incarcerated. Conversations among inmates point to a CIA mole within ISIS, as does the killing of two Special Operations Group agents near Raqqa, Syria, the seat of ISIS power. When 好s brings this information to the president, Duto refuses to launch an investigation without concrete proof.
Now, 好s must do something he never thought he’d do again: Re-assume his former identity as al Qaeda, stage a capture and go undercover in the Bulgarian prison. Since his time with al Qaeda, the web of terrorist activity has grown wider and more complex, and 好s risks everything when he takes the assignment. But it seems there is no other man for the job.
除了情节的现实和令人信服的方面，内在的一个重点 囚犯 is the character of John 好s. To some extent he reminds the reader of Jack Reacher (from Lee Child): A resourceful and brainy spy who is not afraid of taking action or be violent if necessary. Berenson takes 好s from Montana to New Hampshire to Bulgaria and Afghanistan with a fast-paced narrative which is cinematic in scene descriptions and believable thanks to extensive research.
