When CIA analyst Jennifer Flanagan lands at the Glasshouse, the US military’s operations center in Baghdad, she knows she has her work cut out for her. A powerful Iraqi resistance movement, brutal daily urban warfare, and shifting loyalties make the region an intelligence nightmare. To make sense of it all Jennifer, her colleagues, their allies in Britain and France, along with the Iraqis, must all work together to achieve a common good—whatever that may be. But who can she ultimately trust?

From Baghdad to Kabul to Amman, this is an astonishingly vivid and timely narrative that takes us into the heart of US military operations in the Middle East. A nuanced military thriller with a female twist; for lovers of Tom Clancy and Scott McEwen.

Editorial Reviews

“Glasshouse takes us to a new level of understanding of the battlefield. The author’s attention to the intricate fabric of the everyday worlds out of which the leaders of terrorist and insurgent organizations emerge and his careful analysis of the political and social determinants of their rise make this book a great read and an unusually important contribution to understanding how terrorist and insurgent organizations work. The rich texture of the everyday lives of terrorists and insurgents and those who pursue them make this complex conflict come alive.” —Will Reno, professor of political science, Northwestern University, author of Warlord Politics and African States and Warfare in Independent Africa
