Working undercover for the CIA for Operation Pinocchio, Dan Gordon is a master of deception.  He is trying to infiltrate a Lebanese group to find the source of funding to Hezbolla.  He has no idea when he first infiltrates the operation that it’s so much larger than he has been lead to believe.  Dan struggles to find out where the leak in the operation is as he finds himself in deeper and deeper into the wrong place. 

It is a case of twists and turns that lead the reader into the dark parts of the world.  One of Dan’s contacts is murdered and Dan is tortured and held in a Romanian prison cell.  Dan worries that he has been made the sacrificial lamb for the CIA when no one comes to assist him and he wonders where was the security leak that got him charged and how deep it goes.  His only bright spot in the prison is his meetings with the prison psychologist, Mikaela.  She helps him to be released and he , well, you will just have to read the book.  It is a great story that anyone would love to stay up late reading.
