Duplicity - Brooke Grant Series Book 1 by Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and 2012 US presidential candidate, rated as adult fiction, is all about a factitious jihadist named the Falcon, and his entourage of international and home grown American extremists. The heroine in this story is a factitious Captain Brooke Grant, a U.S. Marine.
While co-authored with Pete Earley, a former Washington Post reporter, it is certainly not the kind of book that I would have thought such a former prominent USA politician would have the nerve to put to pen, so-to-speak. However, that is just my opinion.
This story does not end with this book; it is followed by Treason (2016) and then Vengeance (2017).
I agree with the previous reviewer, this book was not a particularly gripping story, but I did find it sufficiently entertaining and I rated it 4-Stars. It did lead to a book that I read first and rated 5-Stars, namely Treason. Recommended by Senior Doctor-at-Bass-Fishing! D. A.

Although not a particularly gripping story, Newt has a nice ability to sneak his foreign policy opinions into his novels which are always interesting.
