An edge-of-your-seat original prequel based on Showtime's hit series Homeland Beirut, 2006. CIA operations officer Carrie Mathison barely escapes an ambush while attempting a clandestine meeting with a new contact, code-name Nightingale. Suspicious that security has been compromised, she challenges the station chief in a heated confrontation that gets her booted back to Langley. Expert in recognizing and anticipating behavioral patterns-a skill enhanced by her bipolar disorder she keeps secret to protect her career-Carrie is increasingly certain that a terrorist plot has been set in motion. She risks a shocking act of insubordination that helps her uncover secret evidence connecting Nightingale with Abu Nazir, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Determined to stop the terrorist mastermind, she embarks on an obsessive quest that will nearly destroy her. Filled with the suspense and plot twists that have made Homeland a must-watch series, this riveting tale reveals the compelling untold backstories of the series' main characters and takes fans deeper into the life and mind of one brilliant female spy.… (mere)

Bejrút, ​2006. Carrie Mathison CIA-ügynök hajszál híján menekül csak meg egy csapdából, amit egy Fülemüle kódnevű kettős ügynök állít neki. Carrie arra gyanakszik, hogy tégla van a CIA-n beül, és gyanújával a bejrúti állomásfőnököt is szembesíti. Másnap már a cég Langley-i központjában találja magát, lefokozva, irodai munkára kárhoztatva. Carrie különleges képességgel rendelkezik, amelyet részben bipoláris zavarának köszönhet: előre látja az emberek viselkedését, megérzi, hogyan reagálnak bizonyos eseményekre. A betegségét titkoló nő rádöbben, hogy egy terrorista akció nyomaira bukkant Bejrútban. A főnökei ellentétes parancsát figyelmen kívül hagyva saját szakállára kezd nyomozni, hogy megtalálja a kapcsolatot Fülemüle és Abu Nazir, az Al-Kaida iraki vezetője közt. Mindent feláldozna azért, hogy elfoghassa a terroristavezért, de arra, ami küldetése során történik vele, még ő sem számíthatott. A Homeland tévésorozathoz hasonlóan a regény is fordulatos cselekménnyel és sokkoló meglepetésekkel szolgál az olvasónak, és érdekes – a tévénézőknek is ismeretlen – dolgokat tudunk meg a főszereplőkről is. A briliáns elméjű kémnő sorsa és két kontinensen átívelő küldetése letehetetlen olvasmány. ( )

Some stretches were quite good, overall a correct, run-of-the-mill spy story ( )

I decided to read this so called book because I had seen all the episodes of Homeland. I did not think the TV series was as good as the rest of the world did and only watched the 4th series because it was made in Cape Town, made to look like Islamabad.
Not sure what I really expected but I had hoped that it would be written in say the John Le Carre mode or even perhaps one of the better American thriller writer’s . All I can say it was bad real bad and perhaps because I listened to the audio I had no idea who was who. ( )

Carrie's Run is a prequel to season one of Homeland. In 2006, CIA agent Carrie Matheson is in Beirut on a mission to make eyes on a contact known as Nightingale. However, it's an ambush that Carrie barely escapes. She soon discovers that there is a bit of consipracy that goes to one of the highest echelons of her government to create a civil war in the Middle East.

Andrew Kaplan writes a decent spy story but it wasn't Homeland. For one thing, Carrie isn't that competent. In this novel, she's sort of a rain man savant super spy. It was not believable. Carrie's voice wasn't authentic. It could have been anyone.

There was a lot of sex in this book. It came out of nowhere. It happened at a lot of impromptu times usually during an op. I hated how they did the Carrie-Estes "affair." On the show, Estes had a lot of hate for Carrie for ending his marriage. In Carrie's Run, he was understanding and admitted that his marriage was already over.

Carrie's Run felt like an alternate universe Homeland. I'm pretty sure Carrie did not do any of this. Not the Carrie I've seen the past three seasons. The plus side is that it is a very quick read and I am kind of glad I didn't buy it. ( )
