An award-winning national correspondent for the Atlantic, Mark Bowden is the author of numerous books of investigative journalism, including the New York Times bestselling classic of war reporting, Black Hawk Down. Floodlighting modern war with first-person accounts of the courage and brutality of battle, the book was a finalist for the National Book Award and was adapted into a major film. Bowden’s other books include Killing Pablo, winner of the Overseas Press Club’s Cornelius Ryan Award for book of the year, and Guests of the Ayatollah, listed by Newsweek as one of “The 50 Books for Our Times.” His new book, The Finish is a blow-by-blow account of the hunt for Bin Laden from the war room to Abbottabad, where the special forces eliminated the terrorist mastermind.
