In this globe-trotting account of one leading counter terrorism agent's life and career, Burton , as a member of an elite secret counter-terrorist division, tells how he was plunged into a murky world of violent religious extremism, one that would take him from the streets of Middle Eastern cities to the informant-filled alleys of American slums. Told in compelling first-person, here, too, is Burton's advice on personal safety for today's most powerful CEOs, gleaned from his experience at Stratfor, the private firm Barron's calls "the shadow CIA."
