Summary
This true spy thriller reveals the inner workings of the notorious Revolutionary Guards of Iran, as witnessed by an Iranian man inside their ranks who spied for the American government. It is a human story, a chronicle of family and friendships torn apart by a terror-mongering regime, and how the adult choices of three childhood mates during the Islamic Republic yielded divisive and tragic fates. And it is the courageous account of one man's decades-long commitment to lead a double life informing on the beloved country of his birth, a place that once offered the promise of freedom and enlightenment--but is instead ruled by murderous violence and spirit-crushing oppression.--From publisher description
