Within hours of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, the FBI had evidence pointing to Iraqi and Islamic extremists. But incredibly, federal authorities quickly squelched all investigations implicating Middle Eastern suspects. In this electrifying new book, award-winning investigative reporter Jayna Davis shares a gripping and intensely personal account of her arrival on the scene thirteen minutes after the blast, the worldwide search for suspects, and the abrupt and unexplained abandonment of the manhunt for John Doe #2. Did he even exist? Eyewitnesses assured Davis that he did identifying him down to the distinctive tattoo on his arm, and his Middle Eastern connections led directly to Saddam Hussein's elite fighting forces, the Republic Guard. Stonewalled by officials, Davis followed her own leads into an activated terrorist cell on U.S. soil, high-level intelligence sources, and classified government leaks. What she uncovered rivals the plot of any spy novel, and is the shocking truth every American has the right to know.More

Bored me to death
Chiefly, the narrator. The way he changed voices just drove me nuts. The writing was at best; average.
None that I could see, did not finish it - just bored me.
Thought this would be a compelling book, based on what I had read about it. It was not. I still believe that there is more to this story, but I did not have the patience to go all the way through this title to learn more.
An unconvincing rabble of an argument
No - if you have even a passing knowledge of terrorism and investigative procedures you will be picking holes in this book the whole way through to the completely fanciful final hour of this book.
Davis has taken a few sketchy descriptions and gone about trying to confirm the case rather than looking at the whole case - a wonderful study in confirmation bias. She spends a long time on very tenuous links but no time looking at the case the prosecution put up.
Don't waste your time - go read Marc Sagemen and get a good feel for what drives home grown terrorism.
No, I will just avoid conspiracy books
First read by Jerry for me - a serviceable performance
I kept going thinking there must be more but it all built up to a truly farcical conclusion
If you like Glenn Beck and Infowars you will probably love this
