Determined to stop the terrorist mastermind, she embarks on an obsessive quest that will nearly destroy her.

This book has become my favourite book ever. I am a huge fan of Homeland and was worried when I heard that there were going to be prequel novels coming out, I was certain that they were not going to live up to the TV series but I was happily proved wrong. It's wonderful to get some backstory into our favourite characters and how certain events shaped their lives, the way they look at the world and the way they think. I would absolutely reccommend this book to any fan of Homeland and to anyone who enjoys a good spy drama.
