IT’S OCTOBER 2015. Meet Mahmoud al Ramadi, 23, a bitter displaced Iraqi who unexpectedly becomes a terrorist. Fresh from battling ISIS in Syria, he’s sent to float to Greece as a refugee. There, in gritty Piraeus, he adopts terrorism—or more precisely, terrorists adopt him. The ambitious operation his new comrades are plotting will, he’s informed, decimate the power elite and nspire revolution around the globe. Having vowed payback for war crimes that orphaned him, the devout Mahmoud accepts the mission as his jihad. His thousand-mile odyssey from war-torn Mosul to strife-ridden Athens and part way back tests his metal, his wits, and his abiding faith.

You’ll find memorable characters, tense action, straight and gay romance, ideological and other altercations, and ingenious improvisations in both the real and virtual worlds in this gripping, one-of-a-kind thriller. How you’ll feel about their rogue operation and its dénouement depends on who you are and what you stand for, but it could be complicated. All that Mahmoud experiences edits his articles of faith and just might edit some of yours.

About the Author

A trenchant observer of current events, social movements, abuses of technology, and the deceits of elites, creative writer and columnist Geoffrey Dutton became a novelist after witnessing politicians and pundits reacting to hordes of hapless refugees streaming into Europe with fear and loathing. Their callous calls to bar and cage innocent victims of Western interventions was the last straw for him. ""All right, then,"" he vowed,"" I'll give you an 'Islamic extremist' who you say hates democracy and wants to destroy your way of life and make you weep for him."" Thus was born this timely, cinema-verité inside-out page-turner that transports you into a conspiracy of "evildoers" and makes you root for them.
