Cathy Scott-Clark: The Exile. The Stunning Inside Story of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda in Flight

Enoch Pratt Free Library

The Exile tells the extraordinary inside story of the decade following 9/11 through the eyes of those who witnessed it: bin Laden's four wives and many children, his deputies and military strategists, his spiritual advisor, the CIA, Pakistan's ISI, and many others who have never before told their stories.

Investigative journalists Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy gained unique access to Osama bin Laden's inner circle, and they recount the flight of Al Qaeda's forces and bin Laden's innocent family members, the gradual formation of ISIS by bin Laden's lieutenants, and bin Laden's rising paranoia and eroding control over his organization.

Cathy Scott-Clark has been a journalist, author and film-maker for more than twenty years, reporting from places as varied as Bosnia, Rwanda, Serbia, Russia, Mongolia, China, Bangladesh, Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Iran, Australia, Ireland, Europe and the UK and USA.

Adrian Levy is an internationally renowned and award-winning investigative journalist who worked as a staff writer and foreign correspondent for The Sunday Times for seven years before joining The Guardian as senior correspondent. He has reported from South Asia for more than a decade, and now lives in London and in France.

Scott-Clark and Levy have written five books – The Stone of Heaven (2001), The Amber Room:  The Fate of the World’s Greatest Lost Treasure (2004), Deception: Pakistan, the United States and the Global Nuclear Weapons Conspiracy (2007), The Meadow: Kashmir 1995 – Where The Terror Began (2012) and most recently The Siege: 68 Hours Inside the Taj Hotel (2014).
