Road Work brings together bestselling author Mark Bowden's shorter pieces into one brilliant collection. It includes an enthralling account of how a vast corruption ring inside the Philadelphia Police Department was broken; 'Tales of the Tyrant', a portrait of Saddam Hussein's terrifying governance of Iraq; 'The Dark Art of Interrogation', a unique investigation into the methods used to extract information from Al-Queda suspects(and others); and 'Intifadah', a previously unpublished account of a month spent on the West Bank, Gaza and Israel during the first Palestinian uprising. Taken together, they confirm Mark Bowden's reputation as perhaps the most incisive and readable investigative journalist currently writing in English. From the reviews of Killing Pablo: 'Riveting' Sunday Times Summer Reading 'A remarkable opus of investigative journalism' The Times 'Powerfully written and well researched' Independent on Sunday 'A psychotic safari.' Daily Mail 'A well researched and staggering account.' Time Out'A brilliant reconstruction... rich with authentic complexity' Evening Standard
