On 9/11 Daniel and Mariane Pearl were in northern India where Mariane was writing a story for French Radio. They moved to Karachi in the fall so that Danny could cover terrorist stories in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and they lived in a house with another Wall Street journal reporter, Asra Nomani.

It was from this house that the investigation into Danny's kidnapping was run. Mariane was a crucial member of the investigative team, solely responsible for negotiating unprecedented cooperation between the FBI and Pakistani intelligence. This is at once a story of astonishing courage and fiercely suspenseful drama - because even though we know Danny died, it is clear that as little as one more day might have been all that was needed to find him.

'We could have saved him,' is the thought that will be going through the heads of many listeners. The difference between Danny and other 9/11 victims and its aftermath is that he was chosen as a victim - individual to individual. This story tells us both who he was and what he stands for. This audio book is extraordinarily moving and powerful, not least because of the profound love affair between Mariane and Danny that resonates throughout.
