The shocking book that caused a furore in Europe is now in B format. 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 the people who murdered him weren't actually fanatic followers of Osama bin Laden? What if he wasn't murdered - as was universally assumed - because he was Jewish and American? What if he was murdered because he was onto something? In a ground-breaking book that combines a novelist's eye with riveting investigative journalism, Bernard-Henri L?vy, one of the world's most esteemed writers, retraces Pearl's final steps through a murky Islamic underworld, suffused by "an odour of the apocalypse. " The investigation plunges L?vy into his own heart of darkness - and a series of stunning revelations about who the real terrorists are.
