Description - Terror Tracker by Neil Doyle
Terror Tracker chronicles the extraordinary true-life adventures of an investigative journalist who gave up his job and set out to penetrate the underworld of international terrorism. Alarming, riveting and entertaining, this is a fast-moving insider's account of the West's war on terrorism; it's also an inspiring tale of innovation and triumph in the face of stacked odds.Author Neil Doyle leads us into a world where underground bases, nuclear suicide bombers, secret terrorism factories, doomsday devices, espionage and imminent global economic meltdown are everyday affairs. He describes his efforts to sort myth from reality and his encounters with the colourful characters he meets along the way: spies, ex-spies, terrorists, hackers, editors, patriots, defectors, jihad warriors, scientists and militant clerics. At the climax of the book, he reveals details of a covert sting operation that resulted in the acquisition of a cache of video and audio tapes showing terrorist suspects attending secret meetings in London. Although he didn't know it at the time, Doyle's journey began in 1993, with an assignment to report on the bombing of the World Trade Center in New York.
That experience led him to resolve, on the afternoon of 11 September 2001, to abandon his job as an online news editor in favour of investigating al-Qaeda as a freelance operator. In what was a unique experiment and a dangerous gamble, he decided to go with his intuition. In the days following the 11 September attacks, he set out to trace the current whereabouts of Osama bin Laden - and succeeded. Terror Tracker also lifts the lid on the unseen battles now being waged between al-Qaeda computer hackers and their Western counterparts.
