I express to him my warmest congratulations and huge admiration on such a fine achievement. His writing is, I guess, something of a cross between John Le Carre and Frederick Forsyth with a touch of Dan Brown and Jeffrey Deaver thrown in. I rank this book right up there with the best of anything those writers have published.
This is the story of two men, one an agent in a secret espionage unit of the US Intelligence Service, the other a Saudi national who becomes radicalised as a teenager and commits to a lifetime work to bring the USA to its knees in a plot that would make 9/11 seem mild in comparison. There are many other significant players in their stories too, all well drawn and totally believable; the plot is intricate, wonderfully developed and completely compelling.This book is a winner.
