A Prayer for Nadia

A Novel

A Prayer for Nadia

Sean Dillon is the keeper of the CIA’s dark secrets. But now, ISIS militants have taken his children and threaten to kill them unless he betrays the country—and the woman—he loves.

Sean Dillon knows darkness.

He once headed the CIA’s shadowy cell NOMAD whose task was to hunt down and kill the world’s most wanted and dangerous terrorists after the September 11 attacks. Those dark days are behind him as he leads a quiet life as a writer and security advisor in Florida with his family.

But on a family trip to Spain, Dillon’s two young sons are killed in a devastating terrorist bombing. The attack is the handiwork of a mysterious female assassin known as Cleopatra, a woman who is part of a breakaway Islamic group that security agencies believe intends a massive attack on the West.

When Dillon is asked by the US president to head up NOMAD again, he accepts—determined to find his children’s killers and make them pay. He begins a frantic globe-spanning hunt but everything changes when Dillon gets an earth-shattering phone call. His sons are on the line, pleading for their lives. They did not die but were deliberately abducted to force Dillon to do the unthinkable.

In order to save his sons’ lives he must become a double agent, working for ISIS to betray NOMAD’s top operatives. Suddenly Dillon finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy—one kept classified by the president and a few chosen advisors; a conspiracy that will test Dillon’s allegiance—to his country, and his president—and make him confront a harrowing secret from his own past. Glenn Meade demonstrates that he “knows what thriller readers crave—that heady mix of sizzle, punch, and danger” (Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author) and Prayer of Nadia more than delivers.
