Description

"Weisman is perhaps wired more tightly into the reclusive special operations community than any other writer, and his knowledge of weaponry and field techniques is staggering."
--Washington Times

"A pro who knows his stuff."
--Oliver North

John Weisman, whose expertise in the field of covert military operations is unsurpassed, delivers a stunning fictional account of the most extraordinary mission of the century: the hunting down and assassination of Osama Bin Laden, the most reviled killer of the twenty-first century, by US Navy SEALs. With KBL: Kill Bin Laden the critically acclaimed author of SOAR and Jack in the Box goes behind the headlines, carrying readers along on a breakneck, breathtakingly realistic chase--from planning to training to execution--as the evil mastermind behind the horror of 9/11 is finally brought to justice.

Back cover copy

KBL: Kill Bin Laden probes the hearts and minds of America's secret warriors, revealing what the job means to them, and the toll it takes. In this riveting novel drawn from actual events and based on real-life heroes, John Weisman brings to life the drama behind the hunt and SEAL Team 6's breathtaking raid in which Bin Laden--the grail for counterterrorists for more than a decade--met his fate.

Filled with pulse-pounding excitement and the tactics, intelligence tradecraft, and operational sources and methods used in real-world CIA and special operation missions, KBL: Kill Bin Laden is a thrill-a-minute dramatization that sets the standard for adventure novels as it brilliantly imagines the action, intrigue, and suspense of this real-life event, and offers a glimpse of the new face of warfare.
