On March 1, 2003, American and Pakistani intelligence agents captured Khalid Sheikh Mohammed-bringing to a close one of the greatest manhunts in history. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, many with investigators speaking for the first time and with members of KSM's family, as well as thousands of documents, McDermott and Meyer give the first comprehensive account of the chase for KSM and what happened after he was captured, including the disruption of the global network he personally assembled. THE HUNT FOR KSM is a tour de force of investigative journalism and vivid portrayal of the epic struggle to capture the most significant terrorist behind bars.
