Description
When the body of an American soldier is discovered in Cuban waters near the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo, Revere Falk, a former FBI agent, is reassigned from his job interrogating an accused al-Qaeda operative to investigate the soldier's mysterious death.
Falk soon finds himself in a deadly game of intrigue that stretches from the charged waters of Guantanamo Bay to the polished halls of Washington. Every move Falk makes could be costly, and to make matters worse, a dark figure from his past reappears, brandishing a secret he thought he had safely buried. "The Prisoner of Guantanamo" is a daring look at life behind the barbed wire of Gitmo and a riveting portrayal of what goes on in the most secret levels of our government.
