The Looming Tower

THE PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING BESTSELLER, NOW A MAJOR NEW TV SERIES

This is the definitive account of the run-up to 9/11: from the man who lit the spark of radical Islam in 1948, to those who built up a terror network, and to the FBI agent whose warnings of 'something big' coming were ignored until the Twin Towers fell.

'The Looming Tower is a thriller. And it's a tragedy, too' The New York Times

'The most detailed (and thrilling) account we have of the events that led to the destruction of the Twin Towers' Observer, Books of the Year

'Possibly the best book yet written on the rise of al-Qaeda ... beautifully written and wonderfully compelling' William Dalrymple

'We meet some formidable schemers and killers ... fabulists crazed with blood and death' Martin Amis
