Product description

Review

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)

About the Author

Born in Denmark, Morten Storm converted to radical Islam and became deeply embedded in the al-Qaeda underworld. He then lost his faith and turned double agent for the West. He became the CIA's most valued informant, entrusted with missions targeting several of the world's most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists. He now lives in hiding in the UK. This memoir is told with renowned British investigative journalists and al-Qaeda experts Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister of CNN.
