In this vivid microcosm of the US ordeal in the Muslim world—at the human level where life is lived—Alex Anders, the son of American missionaries, grows up in Pakistan. Recruited into the CIA, he experiences personal trauma in Pinochet’s Chile before being assigned to the US Embassy in Pakistan where he confronts his ultimate crisis with US policies. A unique mixture of moving personal story, thriller, revealing account of the internal workings of the CIA, acute political analysis, and a deeply felt and probing discussion of the meaning of loyalty and patriotism. It provides insights into the profoundly tragic nature of the relationship between the USA and Pakistan, making it essential reading for anyone concerned with this volatile venture.

From the Author:

After a lifetime of writing non-fiction articles and books about the Middle East and Islam, I finally decided I wanted to do a novel. In a novel I can get so much deeper into the reality of the world, where real life is lived by real people, and not just portrayed through statistics, theories and  grand strategy that ignores the human element. The impact of America's policies and wars  are never real to most Americans who have not lived or served in these troubled regions. And as a long-time CIA officer, I know what it's like on the ground. Hopefully this novel brings all this alive.

About the Author:

Graham E. Fuller is a former senior CIA operations officer; he lived and worked in the Muslim world for nearly two decades and served as Chief of Station in Kabul. He speaks Spanish, Turkish, Arabic, Russian and Chinese and is the author of a dozen books on the Middle East and Islamic fundamentalism. This is his first novel. He lives in British Columbia.
