|About the Book|
It’s not how you play the game. It’s how the game plays you…Alina Marinescu, a highly trained assassin working for Elite Covert Counterterrorism Ops, a powerful and ultra-secretive international anti-terrorist coalition created by four Western powers with the intention of stopping the ever increasing threat of radical terrorism, is captured by Al’Qaeda, sustaining brutal injuries during fierce interrogation and constant torture sessions. Recovery is long and slow, but at the end of it, she is offered a deal she cannot refuse: her freedom in exchange for her direct involvement in apprehending Bashir Al-Fadhee, one of Al’Qaeda’s top ranking leaders. After years of searching for a way to penetrate his apparent unbreakable inner circle of trusted followers, the weakness presents itself in the person of his brother, Bataine Al-Fadhee. Alina’s mission is to locate and persuade him to betray Bashir by seducing him, but she is transformed into a terrorist herself, lost between flashes of her previous life and the artificially sustained love for Bashir.
