The bestselling author of Shadow War and Losing Bin Laden exposes the sinister Al Qaeda mastermind behind 9/11.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the architect of the 9/11 attacks, has carried out many of the biggest terrorist plots of the past twenty years, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the Millennium Plots, and the beheading of Daniel Pearl. As the world awaits his trial, bestselling author and investigative journalist Richard Miniter brings to life his shocking true story.

Based on more than one hundred interviews with government officials, generals, diplomats and spies-from the United States, Europe, the Arab world, and Afghanistan-and on the ground reporting from Morocco, Egypt, Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Guantánamo Bay, Miniter reveals never-before-reported Al Qaeda plots and surprising new details about the 9/11 attacks.

He also shows how Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was radicalized in America and takes us inside terrorist safe houses, CIA war rooms, and the cages of Guantánamo Bay.

While thoroughly reported and strongly sourced, this is a pounding narrative that reads like a thriller.

Review:

Advance Praise for Mastermind

"Mastermind is a heart-pounding read that not only reveals the never before told story of KSM and his terrorist plots, but also the politics surrounding his capture and possible trial. Miniter has it all. If you want the real story behind KSM from beginning to end you must read this book."
-Richard Perle, former assistant secretary of defense

"In telling the full story of KSM, Richard Miniter also reveals the conditions that bred so many other dangerous terrorists-conditions that persist today as much as ever. This is a fascinating book and a must read for those who want to understand the greatest threat to our nation's security."
-General Richard B. Myers, ret., former chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

"An absolutely captivating biography of the wheelhorse of Islamist terror. Learn, for example, how the FBI's insistence on unnecessary formalities in 1996 left Khalid Shaikh Mohammed free to plot and direct 9/11. Impossible to put down. Stunning."
-R. James Woolsey, director of Central Intelligence

"Richard Miniter has written a lively book that raises and offers answers to fascinating questions about Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, one of the world's most murderous and significant terrorists."
-Douglas Feith, former undersecretary of defense for policy; author of War and Decision --Various
