  • Revelatory, extraordinary . . . There are not others [books] in which the main protagonist has also played such an extensive role for western security services, and, more crucially, is prepared to reveal so much

    Jason Burke, Guardian
  • A rollicking read and a rare insider's account of Western spying in the age of Al Qaeda, where the risk if exposed is not Cold War-style expulsion but gruesome execution

    New York Times
  • Explosive

    Independent
  • You couldn't make it up . . . Agent Storm couldn't really be less like Bond

    Christina Lamb, Sunday Times
  • Gripping

    Publishers Weekly
  • Reads like a screenplay for a James Bond movie written by Joel and Ethan Coen

    Washington Post
  • Morten Storm's account of his nerve-wracking life spying on Al Qaeda for Western intelligence gives us the most detailed, compelling, and human look at modern espionage in the lethal world of jihadist terrorism that we are likely to get'

    Mark Stout, former CIA officer and Director
  • Opens a unique window onto bleak interlocking landscapes-the radicalization of European Muslims that has now been energized by the Syrian civil war, the leadership and organization of global jihad, and the twilight struggle waged by western intelligence agencies against an elusive and implacable enemy."

    Steven Simon, bestselling co-author of The Age of Sacred Terror and The Next Attack
  • Morten Storm, Paul Cruickshank, and Tim Lister tell an astonishing and unknown tale of the exploits, change of allegiances, double crosses and inner workings of both al Qaeda terrorist groups and the Western intelligence agencies charged with stopping them. Hard to put down

    Mitch Silber, former Director of Intelligence Analysis at the NYPD and author of The Al Qaeda Factor
  • Remarkable. As a true spy-story, this book brings you incredibly close to what it actually takes to be an extremist and get into a terrorist group while balancing loyalty and treachery in the world of intelligence. Essential reading for everyone interested in how the war on terrorism is actually fought in the shadows.

    Dr. Magnus Ranstorp, a leading expert on international terrorism
