Readable but at times towards he end, is difficult to follow. Obviously a man with a considerable amount of courage, narrating a complex, tortuous journey through Islamic militant ism. Very engaging, and frightening in places, but by the last quarter, I had lost sight of the individuals involved, and just was able to follow the general thread. Good, but could have been clearer. ( )

curious if this story could be true, I read this book. Even after reading it, I am not sure if this can be true. Some of it seems very far fetched. Quick read. Simple writing style. Learned about the different Islamic sections which was interesting. However, I still doubt that Storm really lives. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802123147, Hardcover)

Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.

Agent Storm takes readers inside the jihadist world like never before, showing the daily life of zealous men set on mass murder, from dodging drones with al-Qaeda leaders in the Arabian desert to training in extremist gyms in Britain and performing supply drops in Kenya. The book also provides a tantalizing look at his dangerous life undercover, as Storm traveled the world for missions targeting its most dangerous terrorists , and into the world’s most powerful spy agencies: their tradecraft, rivalries, and late-night carousing, as well as their ruthless use of a beautiful blonde in an ambitious honey trap. Agent Storm is a captivating, utterly unique, real-life espionage tale.

He was the Western convert who would plunge deep inside al-Qaeda. He named his first son Osama after 9/11 and became a Jihadist. But then - after a sudden loss of faith - Morten Storm made a life-changing decision. He became a double agent for the CIA, MI6 and MI5.… (more)
