The 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai offer a rare picture of the ties between Pakistan’s intelligence service and the militant group Lashkar-i-Taiba. The trail of two key figures, an accused Pakistani mastermind and his American operative, traces the rise of a complex, international threat.
Originally part of a Propublica.org article, Pakistan and the Mumbai Attacks: The Untold Stories is an uncommon look at a tragic world-changing event. Gray Dikeos executes the narration of this weighty report with the extreme professionalism of a nightly news anchor.
This report seeks to give a full picture of the violent attack on the Mumbai in 2008, by using vital information gained by Indian, and US intelligence agencies about the events of the three day long siege. Furthermore it seeks to highlight connections between Lashkar-i-Tabai - a Pakistan based militant organization - to Pakistan's own intelligence service the I.S.I.

No Details On Actual Mumbai Attacks
I bought this audible to get more indepth info on the Mumbai terrorist attack. Instead, almost the whole book is on the lead up to the attack and only about 5 minutes (I kid you not) on the actual attack! No details, just comments like 'bombs went off in taxis around the city and the Taj was attacked' - that's it! Not even worth the 3 bucks I paid for it.

Narrator shouldn't attempt accents
Short but well informed and interesting. The narrator attempted to do different accents but failed miserably...
