Publisher Comments:

In the page-turning tradition of Black Hawk Down, the definitive account of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai

Mumbai, 2008. On the night of November 26, Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists attacked targets throughout the city, including the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the worldand#8217;s most exclusive luxury hotels. For sixty-eight hours, hundreds were held hostage as shots rang out and an enormous fire raged. When the smoke cleared, thirty-one people were dead and many more had been injured. Only the courageous actions of staff and guestsand#151;including Mallika Jagad, Bob Nichols, and Taj general manager Binny Kangand#151;prevented a much higher death toll.

With a deep understanding of the region and its politics and a narrative flair reminiscent of Midnight in Peking, journalists Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy vividly unfold the tragic events in a real-life thriller filled with suspense, tragedy, history, and heroism.

Synopsis:

The national bestselling masterpiece of investigative journalism that answers the question of what happened to the world's greatest lost treasure.

Synopsis:

One of mankind's greatest treasures, the Amber Room stood as a symbol of Russian glory for over 200 years. But after the Nazi invasion, it was never seen again. Now, in a masterpiece of detection, two investigative journalists reveal what happened to the most valuable lost treasure in the world--and why the truth has been withheld for so long. Photos & illustrations.
