Description

It was a horrible tragedy, but what if, hidden behind the story of the gruesome on-camera murder of journalist Daniel Pearl, was another, still darker story? What if his murderers weren’t just fanatic followers of Osama bin Laden? What if he wasn’t killed-as was universally assumed-because he was Jewish and American?

What if he was murdered because he was a reporter who was on to something?

REVIEWS

I commend this book, one of the few to ask hard questions, harder than the questions the Pakistani investigators appear to have asked, harder, even, then the questions the US embassy in Islamabad was willing to ask, Levy has a good heart and a noble sense of outrage, You cannot help but admire a man who has so much compassion.
-The Wall Street Journal

A gripping synthesis of philosophy and reportage.
-The New York Times Book Review

Levy brilliantly combines a sharply observed diary of how it feels to track the terrorist trail, as Danny Pearl attempted, with passionate political and philosophical denunciation of Pakistan, which he labels the biggest rogue of all the rogue states of today.
-The Philadelphia Inquirer

Gripping, full of suspenseful twists, bold theories, thrilling, a credit to the investigative reporter whose work it seeks to honor.
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
