Publisher's Summary

For the first time, here's a first-person account of life inside the Jihad. This is a detailed portrait of a 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 by 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.

Waste of time

I found this book mildly interesting throughout the read. However, it was very repetitive and seemed to lack a cohesive thought. The ending was extremely disappointing. I would say that there really wasn't an ending; the author just stopped writing.

Inside the Jihad

Totally disappointed in the ending. A shame such an interesting listen ended with such abruptness. The total length is 45 minutes short of the 14.5 hours advertised.
