"A haunting, harrowing story of civil war ... written by someone who lived it."--Raymond Khoury, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Last Templar

Although a work of fiction, THE GHOST: An Assassin's Story, is based on the true story of the author's experiences growing up in Lebanon during that country's bloody civil war, as well as his time as a counter-terrorist operative. The story follows "Paul" from his childhood in the Bekaa Valley to adulthood where he finds himself recruited as a trained killer by both Israel's Mossad and the CIA.

A tale of obsession and revenge, in this first book of the Al Shabah Assassin Series, Paul ultimately finds himself on the trail of a childhood nemesis who had become the feared charismatic leader of a violent jihadist group. This fast-paced thriller takes Paul around the world in his personal search for truth and justice, and a final showdown with a yellow-eyed terrorist who one violent day ended Paul's childhood and set him on the road to becoming an assassin.

From The Author: "THE GHOST is a work of fiction, not a memoir, but my characters are based on composites of real people, and the major events described in these pages are historically accurate. I should know, because I lived them."

Genre: Thriller
