Black Ops soldier Ben Treven needs to perform a mission to keep out of some serious trouble. The job he has is to recover some tapes which will cause trouble for people up to the highest levels of Government and he is obviously not the only one looking for them. A great combination.

As he used to be a covert operative with the CIA himself, the details of surveillance, logistics and gunplay ring true. It is a microscope turned on the official policies of torture, extraordinary rendition, and the systematic ghosting of detainees. Through the dialogue of his engaging characters, Eisler insightfully conveys the incredible damage these policies caused our nation and the danger they pose to democracy and freedom.
Eisler is a rarity, the ex-spook who turns himself into a great thriller writer. His tight plotting and believable characters show us unforgivingly how counter-terrorism turns evil and counter-productive.
Which makes it not only compelling but, alas, essential reading. Sensitive to the domestic political context, he offers a perspective that can only be gained by experience.
Inside Out synthesizes fact and fiction into a narrative that leaves you contemplating where one ends and the other begins. Donohue , J. This one, however, is also all too real and all too close to home.
After you read it, you will find yourself looking at political news in a very different way… and wondering why these facts are assembled more convincingly in a clever, entertaining suspense novel than they are in the supposedly factual media.

Ex-CIA agent Eisler puts black-ops veteran Ben Treven to work in a search for missing interrogation tapes that promise to answer a haunting question: How and why do our leaders use torture to force prisoners to endorse the fearful lies that keep them in power?
The book combines exciting entertainment with an almost encyclopedic summary of the torture scandal of the past decade, including a sly nod to the growing impact of the blogosphere. If you want to know where policies of war, torture, and assassination have taken this country, read this book. Not long ago, few would have accepted the possibility that the U.
