What has America's War on Terror accomplished? Has it done more harm than good? Part thriller, part dark comedy, Black Site explores these questions in a narrative that unfolds during the years 2000 to 2007. The principal characters in Black Site are Paul Dean, a patriotic mid-level CIA intelligence analyst who is put in charge of a secret prison in Poland, and Laurel Fetzer, a seductive young photographer. Trauma and loss shape their actions, and their individual narratives of self-deception and revenge parallel the national narrative of the War on Terror.
