Publisher Description

“Weisman is perhaps wired more tightly into the reclusive special operations community than any other writer, and his knowledge of weaponry and field techniques is staggering.”
—Washington Times

“A pro who knows his stuff.”
—Oliver North

John Weisman, whose expertise in the field of covert military operations is unsurpassed, delivers a stunning fictional account of the most extraordinary mission of the century: the hunting down and assassination of Osama Bin Laden, the most reviled killer of the twenty-first century, by US Navy SEALs. With KBL: Kill Bin Laden the critically acclaimed author of SOAR and Jack in the Box goes behind the headlines, carrying readers along on a breakneck, breathtakingly realistic chase—from planning to training to execution—as the evil mastermind behind the horror of 9/11 is finally brought to justice.

Great read!

Very well written. It reads as if it's history.

Ripper, USN ret ,

Spectacular!

John Weisman has created a literary masterpiece on two levels. First, KBL is a work of riveting suspense that compares favorably with the very best thrillers in the genre. And second, Weisman's exceptional respectability in the intelligence and special operations communities has allowed him access to detailed information about the actual operation. The outcome is an extraordinarily readable work of fiction that provides a true insider's perspective of one of the most dramatic special operations ever.

Weisman's characters are depictions of actual people, many of whom are easily identified, especially those at the highest levels of government. But the operators, too, are derivatives of real people in the military and CIA worlds. So the authenticity of the narrative is incredible.

If you read only one account of the operation to kill Bin Laden, this should be it.
