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.

Professional reviews

"The pseudonymous author, a Moroccan national and informant working at the behest of the French, British, and German governments, offers a first hand account of his recruitment and training within the infamous terrorist network. Nasiri's "handling" by European intelligence agencies provides a revealing glimpse into the West's counterterrorism efforts, but the most compelling portion of the book--and the longest--recounts the author's time spent in a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan. Lloyd James's presentation is clear and well matched to the subject matter, but the book itself could have used a heavier editorial hand. The pace drags too often, hampered by an excess of pedestrian detail and meandering anecdotes. M.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
