Terrorism, Corruption, Torture, and That’s Just for Starters . . .
When Ali Hussein, suspected terrorist and alleged banker for Al Qaeda, is finally transported from Guantanamo Bay to the US mainland to stand trial, many are stunned when Byron Carlos Johnson, a preeminent lawyer and son of a high-profile diplomat, volunteers to represent him. On principle, Johnson thought he was merely defending a man unjustly captured through rendition and water-boarded illegally. But Johnson soon learns that there is much more at stake than one man's civil rights.
Hussein's intimate knowledge of key financial transactions could lead to the capture of or the unabated funding of the World's most dangerous terror cells.
This makes Hussein the target of corrupt US intelligence forces on one side, and ruthless international terrorists on the other—and puts Byron Carlos Johnson squarely in the crosshairs of both.
“Batista does it again when international intrigue collides with murder in Extraordinary Rendition. A high-priced Wall Street lawyer gets the shock of a lifetime . . . law school never prepared him for this!” —Nancy Grace, anchor on CNN and Court TV and New York Times best-selling author
“—the legal jousting between Mr. Johnson, for the defendant, and the public prosecutor Mr. Rana. One may be immediately reminded of TV dramas such as Boston Legal, The Practice, Suits, The Good Wife.” —Seattle Post Intelligencer
“Extraordinary Rendition takes a reader through a bewildering world of a defendant with no rights, a system of secret hearings and a federal prosecution infected with spies. That’s because Ali Hussein is facing a death penalty trial for being the accountant for Al Qaeda.” —www.thenationaltriallawyers.org
