Chapter 31 Summary

Akbar attacks Gil. Before Akbar can kill him, Gil is saved by Hamza. Gil thanks his friends and limps toward his car but he is worried that Hamza will now be killed by Shah. He plans to return to Washington, and he thinks about Anahita.

Anahita, Zahara, Behnam, the CIA agents, Katherine, Boynton, and Farhad sit in the caves. Behnam begs Zahara for forgiveness, but she dismisses him. Farhad tells the Americans everything he knows, as instructed by Iranian intelligence. He explains that Shah’s scientists are working in an abandoned factory along the Pakistan-Afghan border. Their materials are provided by the Russian mafia, and they have built three bombs already. The bombs were shipped to America two weeks ago. The only people who know the intended targets are Shah, people in the factory, and those who received the bombs in the United States.

Farhad’s explanation is interrupted by gunfire. He is shot and he whispers something to Boynton. Katherine hears Russian shouts, and, after the gunfight, she escapes the caves with Zahara, Anahita, and Boynton. Behnam and the others are dead. Boynton reveals that Farhad’s dying words were “White House” (204).
