Publisher's Summary

Mumbai, 2008. On the night of November 26, Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists attacked targets throughout the city, including the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the world's most exclusive luxury hotels. For sixty-eight hours, hundreds were held hostage as shots rang out and an enormous fire raged. When the smoke cleared, thirty-one people were dead and many more had been injured.

Only the courageous actions of staff and guests - including Mallika Jagad, Bob Nichols, and Taj general manager Binny Kang - prevented a much higher death toll. With a deep understanding of the region and its politics and a narrative flair reminiscent of Midnight in Peking, journalists Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy vividly unfold the tragic events in a real life thriller filled with suspense, tragedy, history, and heroism.

Great real story in times of terror

Paris attack by terriorist just happened over the weekend and it is similar to one that happened in Bombay india
And can happen in future
So get together and condem them so that they do not RULE over our lives
It is a snake whose head should be chopped
