“Weisman is perhaps wired more tightly into the reclusive special operations community than any other writer, and his knowledge of weaponry and field techniques is staggering.”
Washington Times

“A pro who knows his stuff.”
—Oliver North

John Weisman, whose expertise in the field of covert military operations is unsurpassed, delivers a stunning fictional account of the most extraordinary mission of the century: the hunting down and assassination of Osama Bin Laden, the most reviled killer of the twenty-first century, by US Navy SEALs. With KBL: Kill Bin Laden the critically acclaimed author of SOAR and Jack in the Box goes behind the headlines, carrying readers along on a breakneck, breathtakingly realistic chase—from planning to training to execution—as the evil mastermind behind the horror of 9/11 is finally brought to justice.

Quotes & Awards

  • “We will probably never get the full, true account of how Osama bin Laden was found and killed in Pakistan. Mr. Weisman’s novelization of the mission is the next best thing.” 

    New York Times

  • “Weisman’s research is excellent, and he clearly has expert sources. He’s adept at explaining the complex structure of the special operations units…As a former MI6 agent who’s used to reading inaccuracies in thrillers, I was delighted to note that every chapter here feels right.” 

    Washington Post

  • “A good and informative read.” 

    Washington Times

  • “KBL: Kill Bin Laden won’t be closed until you finish it.” 

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cade | 10/20/2013

    " Quick, fast paced read. It's a fictionalized account of the DEVGRU raid to kill UBL. There are quite a few recognizable historical events in the book (the Raymond Davis incident, for example) that make it more enjoyable if you're one who follows the news. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gábor | 10/13/2013

    " Read this semi fictional account on how much (human and monetary) effort is being spent to eliminate HVTs (high value targets) and how busy politicians are with covering their behind, instead of guiding and helping to achieve goals. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate | 10/13/2013

    " Weisman writes a compelling tale that is interesting and engaging with some good characters. It is interesting to see how he weaves actual events into the narative of the book and how he depicts the search for and ultimately the mission to kill Usama Bin Laden. "

    " This is a guy's book for fans of Tom Clancy who want details of military operations; it reads like a documentary and is pretty interesting but full of acronyms. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/15/2013

    " Interesting imagining of what might of happened...given the few facts we know. "

    " Fantastic! This is labeled a "Fiction" book but if you google the events you can find the names of the actual politicians and others involved in the operation. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anthony Vogl | 11/10/2012

    " My problem in this book is the author's obvious disdain for any politicians. This is all guns and glory. "
