An inside look at al-Qaeda from 9/11 to the death of its founder--told through the words of Bin Laden and his closest circle

As seen on 60 Minutes

"A comprehensive, meticulously constructed and eye-opening look at bin Laden as husband, father and leader-in-hiding. . . . an engaging and persuasive read."--Karen J. Greenberg, Washington Post

"Never less than gripping . . . [Offers] an extraordinary insight into the inner workings of al-Qaeda, both before and after 9/11, and lays bare the terrorist organisations closely guarded plans, ambitions and frustrations."--Saul David, Sunday Telegraph

Usama Bin Ladens greatest fear was not capture or death, but the exposure of al-Qaedas secrets. At great risk to themselves and the entire mission, the U.S. Special Operations Forces, who carried out the Abbottabad raid that killed Bin Laden, took an additional eighteen minutes to collect Bin Ladens hard drives and thereby expose al-Qaedas secrets.

In this ground-breaking book, Nelly Lahoud dives into Bin Ladens files and meticulously distills the nearly 6,000 pages of Arabic private communications. For the first time, al-Qaedas closely guarded secrets are laid bare, shattering misconceptions and revealing how and what Bin Laden communicated with his associates, his plans for future attacks, and al-Qaedas hostility toward countries such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Pakistan. Lahoud presents firsthand accounts of al-Qaeda from 9/11 until the elimination of Bin Laden, as told through his own words and those of his family and closest associates.
