Road Work brings together bestselling author Mark Bowden's shorter pieces into one brilliant collection. It includes an enthralling account of how a vast corruption ring inside the Philadelphia Police Department was broken; 'Tales of the Tyrant', a portrait of Saddam Hussein's terrifying governance of Iraq; 'The Dark Art of Interrogation', a unique investigation into the methods used to extract information from Al-Queda suspects (and others); and 'Intifadah', a previously unpublished account of a month spent on the West Bank, Gaza and Israel during the first Palestinian uprising. Taken together, they confirm Mark Bowden's reputation as perhaps the most incisive and readable investigative journalist currently writing in English.
Mark Bowden is the bestselling author of Killing Pablo, Finders Keepers and Black Hawk Down which was made into a successful film by Ridley Scott. He is a national correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly.
