Defector in Our Midst by Tom Fitzgerald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The jihadists are at it again plotting destruction of the infidel, so don't be mislead by the title this is more like a "saboteur or spy in our midst". Myk McGrath a top rated CIA operative is assigned to case to track down terrorists planning the downfall of the US. They have kidnapped a Chinese scientist to work on a new weapon, can Chen Wu be found before the weapon can reek havoc. Myk is motivated by the appearance of Saji a terrorist he knows was responsible for his wife's death in the Madrid train attacks. The investigation however is slowed dramatically by realisation that the terrorists appear to have inside information. During his investigation Myk uncovers some of his own family history of which he knows very little, having never met or ever really known anything about his aunt Rachel and her relationship with his mother, this encourages further digging. The author Tom Fitzgerald has woven two stories ( family / work ) together to produce an outstanding action thriller that I found hard to put down.
