"In DEEP BLACK JIHAD, the white hats of the West square off against Al Qaeda. Deep Black operatives use an elaborate scheme to infiltrate Al Qaeda by planting a listening device inside a terrorist's skull. From an operations center called The Art Room, technicians track the target and direct the action of watcher teams. The chase is on to learn what the terrorist and Al Qaeda are planning and how it can be stopped. J. Charles presents JIHAD in his usual crisp, clear, well-paced style. Character differentiation is challenging with so many people involved in the operation. But Charles's solid efforts manage to bring energy to this otherwise run-of-the-mill thriller. T.J.M.
