In this bold novel, Jason Elliot illuminates the dark recesses of the intelligence community during a crucial moment in history: the struggle to avoid a terrorist attack. Based on real characters and drawing on the author's extensive firsthand knowledge of Afghanistan, the novel follows ex-army officer Anthony Taverner, recruited by the British Intelligence Service to help destroy a cache of American Stinger missiles loose in Afghanistan-before they fall into al-Qaeda's hands. This is a thriller of rare authenticity, providing sustained insight into influences surrounding 9/11 and raising questions about the role of intelligence agencies in historical events deliberately hidden from the public eye.
