Product Description
<DIV><b>In the page-turning tradition of <i>Black Hawk Down</i>, the definitive account of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai</b><br><br> Mumbai, 2008. On the night of November 26, Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists attacked targets throughout the city, including the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the world’s most exclusive luxury hotels. For sixty-eight hours, hundreds were held hostage as shots rang out and an enormous fire raged. When the smoke cleared, thirty-one people were dead and many more had been injured. Only the courageous actions of staff and guests—including Mallika Jagad, Bob Nichols, and Taj general manager Binny Kang—prevented a much higher death toll.<br><br> With a deep understanding of the region and its politics and a narrative flair reminiscent of <i>Midnight in Peking</i>, journalists Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy vividly unfold the tragic events in a real-life thriller filled with suspense, tragedy, history, and heroism.</div>
