In The Cell, John Miller, an award-winning journalist and coanchor of ABC's 20/20, along with veteran reporter Michael Stone and Chris Mitchell, takes readers back more than 10 years to the birth of the terrorist cell that later metastasized into al Qaeda's New York operation. This remarkable book offers a firsthand account of what it is to be a police officer, an FBI agent or a reporter obsessed with a case few people will take seriously. It contains a first-person account of Miller's face-to-face meeting with bin Laden and provides the first full-length treatment to piece together what led up to the events of 9/11, ultimately delivering the disturbing answer to the question: Why, with all the information the intelligence community had, was no one able to stop the 9/11 attacks?

Review:

"[An] eye-opening investigation...Miller, Stone, and Mitchell connect a lot of dots in this frightening and important book."

"[The authors] bring high credibility to this streetwise, gritty police procedural...The Cell crackles like a police radio, racing along with tabloid urgency...An important addition to the growing literature on al Qaeda."

"A riveting, frightening, and illuminating book."

"[Has] the feel of a true crime documentary."
