Morning Edition April 4th: "The Hunt for KSM..." by Terry McDermott and Josh Meyer

'The Hunt For KSM: Inside the Pursuit and Takedown of the Real 9/11 Mastermind' is a real-life thriller about Khalid Sheihk Mohammad, the FBI, the CIA, and the many others involved secretly and openly in the search for KSM.  It reads like the script for an action movie, combining the edge-of-your-seat twists and turns of the Bourne series and '24' combined -  and then taken up a notch. But this is real. Journalists Terry McDermott and Josh Meyer have written a book that attempts to open up an understanding of what motivated KSM, and why he preferred to remain in the shadows, while Osama bin Laden was the nominal  leader of a terrorist movement that continues today.
