"No one has heard from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed since the 9/11 attacks, but James Mitchell has spent countless hours with the terror mastermind at the CIA's black sites. In this gripping book, Mitchell reveals for the first time, in chilling detail, what KSM and other senior terrorist commanders told him. If you want to understand what drives the Islamic radicals seeking to destroy America--and what they say we must do if we want to stop them--you simply must read this book."

"Finally, we learn the true story about what 'enhanced interrogation' is, how it works, and how it protected America after the devastating attack of 9/11. The country owes a profound debt of gratitude to James Mitchell, who spent thousands of hours at CIA 'black sites' learning the secrets of men like Abu Zubaydah, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as he and his dedicated colleagues scrambled to stop more deadly attacks on our nation."
-- Debra Burlingame, Cofounder of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America and Keep America Safe
"Emotions are high and accusations are being thrown about, but facts matter. Before anyone rushes to judgment, they should read this book and take in what happened through the eyes of a key player in the CIA's interrogation program."

"The authentic account of head-to-head hardball with fanatical Islamic killers by a professional who not only won big for America, but did it while fending off powerful critics.
