Publisher's Summary

Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.
Agent Storm takes listeners inside the jihadist world like never before, showing the daily life of zealous men set on mass murder, from dodging drones with al-Qaeda leaders in the Arabian desert to training in extremist gyms in Britain and performing supply drops in Kenya. The book also provides a tantalizing look at his dangerous life undercover, as Storm traveled the world for missions targeting its most dangerous terrorists, and into the world’s most powerful spy agencies: their tradecraft, rivalries, and late-night carousing, as well as their ruthless use of a beautiful blonde in an ambitious honey trap. Agent Storm is a captivating, utterly unique, real-life espionage tale.

Extremely interesting and revealing

What made the experience of listening to Agent Storm the most enjoyable?

The way this book was written was straight forward, clear, not complicated at all. Due to my unfamiliarity with Arabic names, it was hard to follow them but the authors did an excellent job to talk about each of the persons referred to as "This is Mr. X, that later on bombed A in 2009" for example which you can note down and google it later.Also, the narrator did an excellent job as well.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that the events described in the book are very recent and they are currently happening around the world. Also, the inner works of security agencies as well as the glimpse of how the mind of extremists work, make this book extremely enjoyable to listen.

What did you love best about Agent Storm?

Unbelievable how one man could make such a connection with so many involved in world wide events, giving not just a perspective of why those involved went to such lengths on both sides. The best history of post 9/11 non-Afghanistan, non-Iraqi events ever written.

What does Neil Shah bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The Arabic accent adds personality to the book.
