Terrorist Hunter Press Reviews

American Radical is a kinetic account of Elnoury's undercover career... about his life infiltrating Islamist terror cells, averting mass murder, bringing evil people to justice and so on. It is the first time an active FBI agent has published a book remotely like it. * The Times * The author reflects compellingly on the challenges of being a Muslim patriot, and he closes with a plea to resist wholesale bigotry: 'Banning Muslims from the United States throws gas on the myth that the United States is at war with Islam.' His tale of infiltration is exciting and clearly written... A worthwhile, unique addition to the shelf of post-9/11 memoirs concerning the fight against terrorism. * Kirkus Reviews * A multifaceted, action-packed account of real-life spycraft... Elnoury heightens the suspense in vividly described scenes... and provides insight into the worldview and intentions of al-Qaeda affiliates. There is never a dull moment in this intimate story of an American Muslim going to great lengths to serve and protect his country. * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
