Publisher's Summary

The explosive memoir of a Muslim American FBI agent fighting terror from the inside.

It's no secret that federal agencies are waging a broad global war against terror. But, for the first time, in this memoir, an active Muslim American federal agent reveals his experience infiltrating and bringing down a terror cell in North America.

A longtime undercover agent, Tamer Elnoury joined an elite counterterrorism unit after September 11. Its express purpose is to gain the trust of terrorists whose goals are to take out as many Americans in as public and as devastating a way possible. It's a furious race against the clock for Tamer and his unit to stop them before they can implement their plans. Yet, as new as this war still is, the techniques are as old as time - listen, record, and prove terrorist intent.

Due to his ongoing work for the FBI, Elnoury writes under a pseudonym. An Arabic-speaking Muslim American, a patriot, a hero: To many Americans, it will be a revelation that he and his team even exist, let alone the vital and dangerous work they do keeping all Americans safe.

Fascinating

Thank you for putting your life on the line to keep us ALL safe!

Well-written in that I could picture the interactions as they were being described. Fascinating and unnerving at the same time.

Incredible

The best book I’ve “read”. The narration of this book is incredible and make you feel like you’re actually part of the conversation. The downside to this book is Tamer can never share who he really is. I would love to spend a little bit of time talking to him. I hope this book becomes a movie. There is no doubt in my mind it will be a hit. Anyone who has kept themselves abreast of radical Islam and terrorist organizations will recognize key names in the network. I praise agent El Nourey and hope his life is long and happy.

Excellent performance! Relevant & truthful.

Loved it. Couldn't stop listening at times. Fastest I've listened to a book since starting audible. I believe it can resonates across nationality, race, and religious lines.

Great! Gave me a new perspective and understanding

This story was well written, performed well and gave me a much better understanding of the difference between the believers of Islam and the radical Islamists. This story puts you inside the minds of both. I have a greater respect for the true Islamists and an even greater disrespect for the radicals. Thank you "Tamer" for writing this and sharing the story with us. Thank you for your service to our country and the world. Thank you to the many others that worked with Tamer to accomplish the noble and brave work it takes to bring down terrorists.

Wow!!

This story was incredible, only to be made better by the excellent narration. I loved every moment of this book and did not want it to end. This FBI agent is a true hero and deserves praise for all that he has done for this country as well as Canada.
The is the best book I have listened to in a long time. Peter Ganim is extremely talented. This is a must-read.

America is Everyone

Wow. I don't know where to start. This book has had a tremendous impact on my way of thinking and has enlightened me to the heroism and patriotism of an unnamed American Muslim. True heroes don't need public acclaim and they walk and work among us every day. His story kept me listening almost incessantly and the respect both he and his whole team of agents deserves is enormous. I understand now how the perversion of a peaceful religion should be recognized for what it is...a travesty that does not represent true Islam.
To the nameless author, thank you for your courage, patriotism, sincerity, and sense of humor. America is indeed lucky to count you as one of her many wonderful immigrants.

this book is a must read

This gives you a really great understanding of the muslim culture from the good and bad side. It gives you a perspect of why radicals want to rage war across the globe, and how vulnerable we are in America, and take things for granted. Highly recommend this book to get a perspective.
