THE PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING BESTSELLER, NOW A MAJOR NEW TV SERIES STARRING JEFF DANIELS AND ALEC BALDWIN
This is the definitive account of the run-up to 9/11: from the man who lit the spark of radical Islam in 1948, to those who built up a terror network, and to the FBI agent whose warnings of 'something big' coming were ignored until the Twin Towers fell.
'The Looming Tower is a thriller. And it's a tragedy, too' The New York Times
'The most detailed (and thrilling) account we have of the events that led to the destruction of the Twin Towers' Observer, Books of the Year
'Possibly the best book yet written on the rise of al-Qaeda ... beautifully written and wonderfully compelling' William Dalrymple
'We meet some formidable schemers and killers ... fabulists crazed with blood and death' Martin Amis

Wright's brilliantly constructed narrative is head and shoulders above the rest. He knows important parts of the Muslim world (including Saudi Arabia) at first hand, he understands the motors of Islamist militancy ... Moreover, he is a fine writer with an eye for the telling detail. Even those who think they know the story intimately will feel they are reading it anew (New Statesman)
One of the best and most important books of recent years. A masterful combination of reporting and writing (Dan Rather)
Lawrence Wright's integrity and diligence as a reporter shine through every page of this riveting narrative (Robert Caro)
Lawrence Wright has written for many years for The New Yorker and is the author of the bestselling The Looming Tower, which won the Pulitzer Prize.
