Summary
"Drawing on unprecedented access to FBI and CIA counterterrorism operatives, New York Time bestselling author Ronald Kessler presents the chilling story of terrorists' relentless efforts to mount another devastating attack on the United States and of the heroic efforts being made to stop those plots." "Kessler takes you inside the war rooms of this battle - from the newly created National Counter-terrorism Center to FBI headquarters, from the CIA to the National Security Agency, from the Pentagon to the Oval Office - to explain why we have gone so long since 9/11 without a successful attack and to reveal the many close calls we never hear about. The race to stop the terrorists, Kessler shows, is more desperate than ever." "Based on exclusive interviews with FBI Director Robert Mueller, CIA Director Michael Hayden, White House Counterterrorism Chief Fran Townsend, and dozens of key intelligence operatives at all levels."--BOOK JACKET
