The Prisoner of Guantánamo:
Revere Falk - FBI veteran, Arabic speaker - is an interrogator at “Gitmo,” assigned to a “hold-out,” a Yemeni prisoner who may have valuable information about al Qaeda. But these duties are temporarily suspended when a dead American soldier is found washed ashore in Cuban territory. No American has ever turned up dead on the wrong side of the fence before.
Suddenly, Cold War tension is back and Falk finds himself at the heart of it. As he is drawn into a game of evasion and pursuit, a figure from his past reappears - someone who knows secrets about him that he had hoped were buried forever.
The Amateur Spy:
Burned out by years of humanitarian-aid work, Freeman and Mila Lockhart have retreated to an idyllic Greek island. But on the first night of their new life they are surprised by three intruders who seem to know everything about Freeman - including a haunting secret. They use it to blackmail him into spying on an old Palestinian friend in Jordan.
In suburban Washington, D.C., meanwhile, a prosperous Palestinian-American couple, Abbas and Aliyah Rahim, are still grieving for their daughter, accidentally killed while vacationing abroad. Aliyah fears her husband blames the bureaucrats and may be reeling toward fanaticism, and her efforts to avert this take her to Jordan.
As their paths converge, Freeman and Aliyah - both desperately worried about the loved ones they left behind - must swiftly separate fact from illusion, enemy from friend. The consequences of failure could be catastrophic. . . .
