The ultimate insider's account of the battle against terrorism, The Black Banners describes for the first time Ali Soufan's nerve-wracking, history-making decade as the FBI's lead investigator into al-Qaeda, thwarting plots around the world and winning vital confessions from terrorists - without laying so much as a hand on them. From the interrogation rooms where Soufan would share food and films with the suspects so he could bond with them, to the hideouts of bin Laden - and why the CIA have insisted on redacting parts of this book - Ali Soufan's gripping book reveals with intimate, first-hand knowledge, the shocking truth about 9/11, America's security agencies, and the global 'War on Terror'.

In a new memoir, a former F.B.I. agent who tracked Al Qaeda before and after the Sept. 11 attacks paints a devastating picture of rivalry and dysfunction inside the government 's counterterrorism agencies. The book describes missed opportunities to defuse the 2001 plot, and argues that other attacks overseas might have been prevented, and Osama bin Laden found earlier, if interrogations had not been mismanaged. --Scott Shane
