Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The shockingly revelatory story of the FBI's 12andndash;year, preandndash;9/11 battle against terrorism, as told through the stories of three people on the frontlines" the world's most dangerous terrorist, and two Americans who fought against him from the beginning.

As 9/11 unfolded three strangers watched the events andndash; and were not surprised. For years these three had been bound on a collision course: FBI agent Nancy Floyd, FDNY Fire Marshal Ronnie Bucca, and Ramzi Yousef, a bombandndash;making terrorist. Floyd, Bucca, and Yusef were soldiers on opposite sides of a more covert terrorist war andndash; one that has been fought for the past 12 years.

In 1000 Years for Revenge andndash; a work of groundbreaking investigation that reads like an international thriller andndash; fiveandndash;time Emmyandndash;winning investigative reporter Peter Lance reveals the details of the 12andndash;year search for Osama bin Laden's New York City terrorist cell, by an FBI plagued by infighting, misinformation and negligence. Based on astounding evidence, only recently uncovered, this book holds revelations that promise to attract headlines, including exclusive evidence of an Al Qaeda mole in a highly sensitive government position in New York City.

Synopsis:

1000 Years for Revenge is a groundbreaking investigative work that uncovers startling evidence of how the FBI missed dozens of opportunities to stop the attacks of September 11, dating back to 1989. Award-winning journalist Peter Lance explains how an elusive al Qaeda mastermind defeated the entire American security system in what the author calls "the greatest failure of intelligence since the Trojan Horse." Threading the stories of FBI agent Nancy Floyd, FDNY fire marshal Ronnie Bucca, and bomb-maker Ramzi Yousef, Lance uncovers the years of behind-the-scenes intrigue that put these three strangers on a collision course. An unparalleled work of investigative reporting and masterful storytelling, 1000 Years for Revenge will change forever the way we look at the FBI and the war on terror in the twenty-first century.
