The Afghan is Izmat Khan, a five-year prisoner of Guantanamo Bay and a former senior commander of the Taliban. The Afghan is also Colonel Mike Martin, a 25-year veteran of war zones around the world - a dark, lean man born and raised in Iraq. In an attempt to stave off disaster, the intelligence agencies will try to do what no one has ever done before: pass off a Westerner as an Arab among Arabs; pass off Martin as the trusted Khan.

"A Very Good Read, Well researched & Executed"
This is the first book I have by this author and it won't be the last!
This is a very well researched and superbly crafted book, it held me from start to finish.
Fact & fiction are woven well together, leaving you wondering.
Its a fast paced novel, well read by Robert Powell.
I would suggest the Unabridged , as i think some of the background may have been lost?
Having said that this is pure escapism!
