As one of al-Qaeda's most respected scholars and bomb-makers, Aimen Dean rubbed shoulders with the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks and swore allegiance to Osama bin Laden himself. His job was already one of the most dangerous in the world. But what the others didn't know was that he was working undercover for MI6. This is the story of how a young Muslim, determined to defend his faith, found himself fighting on the wrong side and the fateful decision he made to work for his sworn enemy. Through a life spanning some of the most lethal conflicts of the past 50 years, we discover what it's like to be at the heart of the global jihad, and what it will take to stop it once and for all.
