John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover. Now, on the orders of Omar Khadri--the malicious mastermind plotting more al Qaeda strikes on America--Wells is coming home. Neither Khadri nor Jennifer Exley, Wells's superior at Langley, knows quite what to expect. For Wells has changed during his years in the mountains. He has become a Muslim. He finds the United States decadent and shallow. Yet he hates al Qaeda and the way it uses Islam to justify its murderous assaults on innocents. He is a man alone, and the CIA--still reeling from its failure to predict 9/11 or find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq--does not know whether to trust him. Among his handlers at Langley, only Exley believes in him, and even she sometimes wonders. And so the agency freezes Wells out, preferring to rely on high-tech means for gathering intelligence. But as that strategy fails and Khadri moves closer to unleashing the most devastating terrorist attack in history, Wells and Exley must somehow find a way to stop him, with or without the government's consent. From secret American military bases where suspects are held and "interrogated" to basement laboratories where al Qaeda's scientists grow the deadliest of biological weapons, The Faithful Spy is a riveting and cautionary tale, as affecting in its personal stories as it is sophisticated in its political details.… (mer)

I liked this John Wells book too, but slightly prefer #2. John's disappearance from the CIA's radar as he infiltrates Al-Qaeda worries the senior staff, but his primary handler continues to believe in him and ultimately helps him thwart a second major terrorist attack in Times Square: a clever and diabolical plan.

Excellent Thriller ( )

I started this book, because I have part 3 in the series on MTBR and I want to finish it before the year ends.
But, starting a series from part 3 and working forward to 1 is maybe good for LOTR the movies, but not for this book. So... I started book one and, even though I had little time to read, I finishex it within a week. Or maybe it's better to say that I'm hooked.

I liked the book lots. An interesting view point at counter terrorism, muslim terrorism, dilemmas a undercover operative faces. The differences in attitude towards life on both sides, I had a very good time reading it.
What I liked best was, that the main character was not depicted as a kind of duper hero. Not a man like 'I'm an American so I know all, I know what's best, you have to listen to me, or else'.
I hope part 2 is as good as this one! ( )

הספר הראשון בסדרה על ג'ון וולס שמסביר לפחות למה הוא התאסלם. כמו כל הספרים האחרים אינטליגנטי ונקרא בנשימה עצורה. החזיק אותי היטב בימים בכרטה מאריס. ( )

Really Good. It is like Homeland or Traitor (That Don Cheadle movie) before those were things. Or it's like that show Sleeper Cell. ( )
