  • Compulsive and brilliantly researched. Reads like a fast-paced thriller

    William Dalrymple
  • Totally unputdownable, utterly absorbing - a minute-by-minute account of a hotel under onslaught. Here we have hostages, police and terrorists; their every fateful action and decision; the moments of sheer chaos and the crucial seconds of clarity

    Paul French, author of the Dagger and Edgar Award-winning Midnight in Peking
  • Meticulously researched, beautifully written: an unstoppable read. This is not your ordinary thriller

    Ahmed Rashid, author of Descent into Chaos
  • A heart-pounding read and an investigative tour de force, The Siege is an essential primer on terror in the 21st Century. It shows where mass-murderers come from, how they think and what it is like to be caught in the cross-hairs of their madness

    Blaine Harden, author of Escape from Camp 14
  • Propulsive, intense, exceedingly well-reported . . . a tragedy and a thriller with concussive human and political resonance. I read it in what felt like three blinks

    New York Times
  • Heartrending, chilling, compelling, astonishing . . . as action-packed as any thriller and so hard to put down that it must surely end up as a movie

    Sunday Times
  • An investigative masterpiece... so vivid it ought to be a movie

    Tina Brown
