Short Synopsis
In the tradition of Black Hawk Down, this is the definitive account of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Full Synopsis
Mumbai, 2008. On the night of November 26, Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists attacked targets throughout the city, including the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the world's most exclusive luxury hotels. For sixty-eight hours, hundreds were held hostage as shots rang out and an enormous fire raged. When the smoke cleared, thirty-one people were dead and many more had been injured. Only the courageous actions of staff and guests—including Mallika Jagad, Bob Nichols, and Taj general manager Binny Kang—prevented a much higher death toll.

With a deep understanding of the region and its politics and a narrative flair reminiscent of Midnight in Peking, journalists Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy vividly unfold the tragic events in a real-life thriller filled with suspense, tragedy, history, and heroism.

"Narrator James Langton is clear and measured in chronicling the coordinated attack on the luxurious Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Oberoi Trident, Leopold Cafe, and other locations of significance in Mumbai by members of a Pakistani terrorist organization." ---AudioFile
