Inside the Jihad: My Life with Al Qaeda, a Spy's Storyby Omar Nasiri, Lloyd James (Narrated by)
For the first time, a first person account of life inside the Jihad... This is a detailed portrait of the complex man who fought on both sides. From Europe's burgeoning terrorist underground in the 1990s, to the training camps of Afghanistan, to the radical mosques of London, Omar Nasiri offers a unique and chilling perspective, on both the rise of Al Qaeda, and the intelligence services that struggled to contain it. Inside the Jihad is the story of a double agent operative working for UK and French intelligence in infiltrating Al Qaeda training camps. During his time in the camps, Nasiri met all of the top terrorist leaders-including Osama Bin Laden-and engaged in a wide range of illegal activities. Strikingly well-written and gripping, Inside the Jihad is a terrifying, suspenseful read.

This book is the first non-fiction page turner I have read in a long time. The only one that might write a bad review on this might be a Muslim who couldn't take pride in another Muslims plight against the radical elements. Although Basic Books, the publisher, could have done a little better job of editing, it is a really great read.
