Reading this book felt like watching a movie. One I didn't want to end! The Damascus Letter is a great first novel. More than just well-written, it deals with relevant issues - considering both sides of the coin (pro- & anti-torture).

Beware of Spoilers!
Akil Hassan was fired from the CIA for breaking a cardinal rule: Do not get involved with an asset! However,in light of a possible (turned real) terrorist threat his former boss offers him a second chance. Not everyone is in favor of that dec

Not my favorite, but wasn't terrible. Author seemed to use too many words when a smaller number would do. Some of the events felt recycled from lots of other books/TV/movies. The main character was interesting, as was his FBI counterpart.

Really enjoyed it. Frighteningly plausible, well researched. I feel like with a little marketing, this could be on a best seller list.
