[Library Edition Audiobook CD in sturdy Vinyl case.]

[Read by Peter Berkrot]

From the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller Lone Survivor comes the riveting behind-the-scenes story of the three Navy SEALs who captured the ''Butcher of Fallujah'' and, having been charged with prisoner abuse, their long road to justice.

On a daring nighttime raid in September 2009, a team of Navy SEALs grabbed the notorious terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed, the villainous ''Butcher of Fallujah,'' the mastermind behind the 2004 murder and mutilation of four American contractors. In this no-holds-barred account, bestselling author Patrick Robinson reveals for the first time the entire story, from the night the SEALs stormed the al-Qaeda desert stronghold to the accusations and legal twists and turns that followed to the cut-and-thrust drama in the courtroom where the fate of three American heroes hung in the balance.

About the Author:

PATRICK ROBINSON is the coauthor of the #1 New York Times nonfiction bestseller Lone Survivor. He is also the author of numerous international bestselling suspense thrillers, including Diamondhead, To the Death, Nimitz Class, and Hunter Killer, as well as several nonfiction bestsellers.

From Booklist:

In 2009, a team of Navy SEALs captured an Iraqi terrorist, sometimes known as the Butcher of Fallujah, who was responsible for the brutal murders of four American security officers. Shockingly, the captured man leveled accusations of brutality against his captors; even more shockingly, the American government put three SEALs on trial for prisoner abuse. They were acquitted, but the charges ruined their careers and put the American military in the global spotlight in pretty much the worst possible way. This book, written by thriller author Robinson with the cooperation of two of the three SEALs, chronicles the story, from the capture of the terrorist through the trials of the SEALs, and it’s a tale that is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and spark debate. Written in an even-keeled, reportorial style, the book tells a story we wish had never happened, but one that certainly needs to be told. --David Pitt
