This is the first TV/Movie tie-in I have read that does total justice to the source material. Andrew Kaplan has it nailed. This is a perfect prequel story to events that lead to the emergence of Brody. The characters are explored in more depth and are so recognisable as portrayed on screen. This is no lacklustre story. It has a complexity that all good thrillers should have and explores the sectarian divide that makes for odd political alliances in the troubled middle east. This gives the story a realism that had the show not existed, then this would be an excellent thriller in its own right.
I would have expected a tie-in novel of the show to have been penned by its executive producer Howard Gordon, but having read his two very average 'Gideon' books, I'm glad it was left in the capable hands of an established thriller writer. The blurb on the back cover hints at more. I hope so. It would be nice to see some of the other characters portrayed who are less well known, but destined for a bigger role in the saga, particularly the mysterious and enigmatic Dar Adal, as played by the excellent F Murray Abraham.
I was so impressed with the book that I am now going to have a look at Andrew Kaplan's back catalogue. Based on the evidence of this story, I don't think i'll be disappointed. Give it a try.

In a word? Awesome. If you love the hit show HOMELAND from Showtime, you'll love this book. It is so true to character, you'll think you're watching the prequel episode. Absolutely wonderful, thrilling, edge-of-your seat exciting. A great read to keep you going in between seasons. I hope and look forward to more Homeland titles from this author!

Loved this book. I am a massive fan of the TV series so wasn't sure what to expect but it really is worth a read. You really do feel like you are on Carrie's run with her. From reading the book I've seen Carrie in a different light! I'm now a fan of hers I wasn't from the TV show.
The book can be hard going because of the theme, at times it uses different language but keep going as this just makes the book more realistic. Alike the series this book can be far fetched and there Is twists thrown into surprise you, that is after all why you probably bought this book in the first place. Expect it!!!
I was addicted to this book - enjoy :)

I've been anticipating the release of this book and it definitely does not disappoint. There are many parallels with the TV Series including characters, milieu and Carrie's mental state. The story explodes off the first page with Carrie escaping an assassination attempt in Beirut. Despite battling her psychological demons with her emotions on a never ending roller coaster, she is still portrayed as this clear headed analyst amongst all the chaos. Her search for the double agents who facilitated the assassinate attempt leads her hot on the trail of Abu Nazier in Lebanon and Iraq. Whilst there, she discovered a terrorist plot against New York City and shows characteristic Carrie determination in trying to prevent it. Estes and Saul also feature prominently in the book and Virgil remains her go to surveillance guy. We are introduced to a new player, Abu Ubaida, who is Abu Nazier's right hand man planning multiple terrorist attacks. In her search for Abu Nazier and Abu Ubaida, Carrie leaves a wake of collateral damage and tries to deal with it as best she can. This is an action filled, gruesome, thrilling read and perfectly compliments the TV Series. If you enjoyed the show, don't miss this book.

A decent quick read, the characters fit in well enough with what we expect from the first two series of Homeland.

However it is let down by poor research, for example Carrie is using an iPhone in the spring of 2006, even though the first iPhone wasn't released until June 2007. Another example, Vietnam-era Huey helicopters evacuating casualties after a fire fight in Iraq? Unlikely given the vast number of Black Hawks in theatre at this time.

Just needed a picky proof reader I guess.

Format: Paperback
Overall it's a very good story true to the show. Have a small problem with a few details that will only be evident to the die hard fans. Small details such as Carrie's name its Carrie-Ann not Carrie that Is short for Caroline. Her mother's name is recorded as Emma in the book but in the latest season 4 her mother's name is Ellen Mathison. Bearing in mind this book was written before the release of season 4 but some additional research with the creators would've made the book that much more true to the show. Carrie in the book also seems a bit more ruthless and has less of a conscious in the book in terms of her actions. However it's definitely worth the read, gives more background to Carrie's past which they mention in the show and its great that Andrew has kept to that storyline.

I ploughed through this. Started hopefully, but then became bogged down bogged.. did I say bogged. A thriller without much thrill.
