to defend Somali prisoner, Kaled al-Jawar, imprisoned in Guantanimo,
from the death penalty. Jawar is charged with the fatal stabbing
of his ex-girlfriend 3 years ago. Jawar is revealed to really be
Jamar, an American. He offers for his defense the story of his kidnapping
by his Somali father’s enemies and his subsequent and imprisonment..
Any witnesses who could confirm his alibi are being eliminated.
Sywtech must uncover the sadistic killer and his bosses before the
conspirators can silence everyone who can speak against them.
This is an exciting tale of revenge and intrigue. The story is
well plotted. The characters are very human, some very unsavory
. There are enough questions in the action to keep the reader in
