In 2012, an Al-Qaeda sleeper cell was planning 2 potentially devastating attacks in the United States and Canada - at the same time. To prevent catastrophe, a Muslim undercover FBI agent had to gain to the trust of the extremely dangerous Al-Qaeda operative planning the attacks. HBH is thrilled to welcome FBI agent and author Tamer Elnoury.
Already an experienced undercover officer, Tamer joined the FBI after 9/11 in an elite unit of the brand new Joint Terrorism Task Force. When he was given the assignment to go undercover and investigate Chiheb Esseghaier, he did not realize that he would soon be racing to stop two separate terrorist attacks.
Chiheb Esseghaier was a renowned doctor - and an incredibly important member of Al-Qaeda. In 2012 he traveled freely throughout North America and the world pursuing medical research. Simultaneously, he was running two sleeper cells. Furthermore, he was one of the very few in contact with Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the hand-picked successor to Osama bin Laden.
Tamer Elnoury is a patriot and a hero who saved the lives of untold innocent people. He appears under a pseudonym for his own protection.
We highly recommend the New York Times bestselling book ‘American Radical’ by Tamer Elnoury and Kevin Maurer.
