Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 July 2019
As part of an Amazon offer, I first listened to Operation Jihadi Bride on audible and enjoyed it sufficiently to read it on Kindle. It is a quick read, straight into the action and straight into the heart of the dilemma: what do we do with those young girls who became jihadi brides and have since changed their minds and want to come home?

While this is the theme running below the surface, the book tells the story of the heroic John Carney who set about saving the girls from the crumbling Islamic State first and thought about the politics after. Hounded all the while by MI6, whose policy was to leave the girls there 'and let them die,' while they greedily gleaned all the intelligence from Carney that they could.

The book is well written, moving (it brought tears to my eyes on a number of occasions) and should be sent to every politician and every Muslim leader so that they can discover the inside story of Islamic States and the young women it tricked into joining them. Essential reading - and listening.
