The CIA’s greatest enemy, Imad Mughniyeh, is linked by a young CIA targeter named Lena Asayran to an attack on US forces in Iraq in 2007. Lena coerces an Iranian defector into disclosing the shady background of 19-year-old Imad’s rise to power. In 1983, CIA officer Robert Ames is confident that he can implement a regional peace plan by compelling Israel to withdraw. Imad, however, sees an opening, and he devises the first suicide bombing in the Middle East. Imad is set on remaking the Middle East, while Ames is set on spreading hope.
