A son once a child warrior in the mujhadeen's struggle against the Soviets, once a Delta Force soldier, now a covert operative in the USA's secret War Against Terror in Pakistan.
His name is legend among the tribes of Pashtun. A mother held hostage in the mountain fastness of North West Pakistan.
With a long-standing fatwah hanging over her, her execution is a certainty.
She knows she can't out-fight her captors, but can she out-think them?
A family prepared to do whatever it takes to protect its own, whatever the cost, even if it means unleashing a nightmare that could engulf the world in flames.
THE GOOD SON A provocative, high-stakes thriller that moves from the subterranean corridors of Washington DC to the backstreets of Lahore to the high mountains of the Hindu Kush, tackling the collision of Islam and the West head on with a high-octane mixture of CIA and NSA tradecraft, Sharia law and Sufi mysticism.
