Summary
A'Toropov writes an utterly fantastic tale which does so many different things so well. The author captures the very essence of the "war on terror" and its psychological and moral complexities. It is a book of our time' Edward Wilson '--Jihadi'A bold and skilfully executed novel that bravely tackles a complex and timely subject in accomplished and precise prose' Frankie Gaffney A former intelligence agent stands accused of terrorism, held without charge in a secret overseas prison. His memoir is in the hands of a brilliant but erratic psychologist who has an agenda of her own, and her annotations paint a much darker picture. As the story unravels, we are forced to assess the truth for ourselves, and decide not only what really happened on one fateful overseas assignment but who is the real terrorist. Peopled by a diverse and unforgettable cast of characters, whose reliability as narrators is always questioned, and with a multi-layered plot heaving with unexpected and often shocking developments, Jihadi: A Love Story is an intelligent thriller that asks big questions. Complex, intriguing and intricately woven, this is an astonishing debut that explores the nature of good and evil alongside notions of nationalism, terrorism and fidelity, and, above all, the fragility of the human mind
