ABOUT THE BOOK
Alec Alton and Ameena Al-Amine are members of an elite RCMP National Security team investigating a multi-ethnic drug trafficking syndicate. Together, they trace the illicit activity to an Afghan terrorist financing network. As they follow the evidence, they unearth evidence that the CIA had a hand in one of the worst atrocities in history. Forced to travel in the most surveilled region on the planet, they travel off-the-grid moving from Central Asia to the Middle East in search of truth. They meet high level informants, former key members of the mujaheddin, who each hold a piece of buried history. With a traitorous CIA operative behind the rise of al-Qaida hunting after them, they must rely on their covert training and specialized techniques. Running out of time, they must retrieve the elusive Purple Book, an embodiment of the CIA's mea culpa, thought long destroyed during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad.
Inoculum explores themes of terrorism, drug trafficking, geo-politics and corruption. It lightly walks the reader through the history of regional conflicts, espionage and the security agencies, ultimately connecting the exploitation of the Muslim republics in the Soviet Union during the ’70s to the tragic events of 9/11.
A thrilling and moving portrayal of how the western world has helped propagate the myth about the rise of Islamic radicalization. Inoculum is at once introspective and critically contrived. It is for everyone and anyone who craves answers to the some of the biggest questions in our recent history.
