Agent Storm

My Life Inside al Qaeda and the CIA
eBook

The true story of a jihadi convert seeking redemption in "a rollicking read and a rare insider's account of Western spying in the age of al Qaeda"(The New York Times Book Review).

Standing over six feet tall with flaming red hair, Morten Storm was an unlikely jihadi. But after a troubled youth in his native Denmark, Storm found peace and purpose in his conversion to Islam. His absolute devotion only grew after he attended a militant madrasa in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with American-born terrorist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Then, after a decade of jihadi life, he not only rejected extremism—he began a quest for atonement, becoming a double agent for the CIA as well as British and Danish intelligence agencies.

Agent Storm takes readers inside the fanatical jihadist mindset and into the shadows of the world's most powerful spy agencies in an action-packed account that "reads like a screenplay for a James Bond movie written by Joel and Ethan Coen" (The Washington Post).
