This was a GREAT story but I had to give it three stars for the organization and narrative of the writing But Nada s story is compelling and heartbreaking at the same time This was a really interesting book that definitely kept the pages turning The author was simply trying to serve the country that she d grown to love but our government sure did make it difficult for herOverall I found the writing to be fine but it felt like the end was a little rushed About 34 of the book is a build p to the ridiculousness and then it s just sort of rushed through I felt like the reasons she was set p should have been gotten into with a little depthI would certainly recommend it to a friend and I m glad I read it Also thanks to the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program for the copy of this book Uncompromised is a powerful memoir Nada Prouty a former FBI and CIA agent tells the story of how she came to be involved in the War on Terror and how she was accused of spying for Hezbollah She starts her story with her childhood in war torn Lebanon providing an interesting and important background to both who Nada is as a person and her desire to serve the United States in the fight against terrorism She then goes on to tell of her immigration to America and how she became first an FBI agent and then later a CIA spy finally Nada concludes with the devastating story of how she became known as Jihad Jane when she was falsely accused of spying for Hezbollah The writing is fairly simple yet works very well for Nada in telling her story There Were Some Parts Where some parts where discussed her former
