Omschrijving

In a bland concrete cell, two men face each other across a bare table. One is a wanted terrorist, the other a British intelligence officer. As they talk deep into the night, violent secrets are revealed, and the line between interrogator and confessor blurs inextricably. Who is the real terrorist? And will he pay for his guilt in blood?

In this riveting novel, Richard Jackson unsettles this comforting view of terrorists as "the other" and holds our preconceived notions up to a stark light. Structured as the classified transcript of a British Army captain's interrogation of a suspected Egyptian terrorist, Confessions of a Terrorist takes us inside the mind of a possible terrorist. Though movies and mass media often portray terrorists as fanatics, barbarians, and extremists, Jackson's novel troubles this view, offering a nuanced portrait of the humanity behind the headlines.

With a dialogue that disturbs and enlightens, Jackson probes one of the most difficult issues of our time with extraordinary sensitivity and finesse.
