Ali Watani works undercover. He is not a cop, but a journalist. At first, he works as a fixer for journalists, then he becomes an undercover journalist himself working for one of France’s biggest production companies and reporting on hot topics like dog fights, money laundering and arms trafficking… As he is becoming a master of infiltration, Ali Watani comes about a tip of France’s secret services that enables him to infiltrate the inner circles of an infamous salafist mosque. But instead of pointing him towards radicalized Muslims, the tip leads him directly into the heart of France’s most important cell of Jihadist fighters. In 2015, Ali breaks bread with Islamic extremists, becomes part of their network and earns their trust… until, in the aftermath of November 14th, he crosses paths with the most important Isis recruiter in France: Abou Souleymane.
In this riveting testimony we follow Ali’s calvary as he is manhandled by French secret services, betrayed by his own production team and must fear for his life when his cover with the soldiers of Allah is blown. But the years of harrowing undercover work have paid out, eventually leading Ali to his biggest scoop that he presents in this breathtaking and informative page-turner.
