The driver was sweating as his explosive-filled pickup truck sped along a rain-slicked Baghdad highway toward a neighbourhood bustling with open-air markets. And he had another reason for panic - he was a spy who thought his cover had been blown. 'The Spymaster of Baghdad' is the story of the top-secret Iraqi intelligence unit that infiltrated the Islamic State.
