His death could doom a revolution. But the only thing keeping him alive is the honor of a spy.

Proekt ARKHANGEL. Anbar Province, Iraq. Early 2007.

The Anbar “awakening.”

Dispatched to Iraq to help cement the alliance, CIA Arabist and paramilitary Harry Nichols finds himself drawn into a world of shifting loyalties and allegiances, where nothing is certain—the word of a government, least of all.

As enemies gather, both without and within, he will be forced to make a final, desperate choice:
his orders. . .or his honor? And the fate of the awakening will rest in the balance.
