The kingdom

Berg, Peter
A terrorist bomb detonates inside a Western housing compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, causing an international incident to ignite. FBI Special Agent Ronald Fleury quickly assembles an elite team and negotiates a secret five-day trip into Saudi Arabia to locate the madman behind the bombing. Fleury and his team discover that the Saudi authorities are suspicious and unwelcoming of the Americans into what they consider a local matter. The agents find their expertise worthless without the trust of their Saudi counterparts. Luckily, the agents find a partner in Saudi Colonel Al-Ghazi, who helps them navigate royal politics and helps unlock the secrets of the crime scene and the workings of an extremist cell bent on further destruction.
