At 9:02 a.m. April 19, 1995, in what was at that time largest terrorist attack ever perpetrated on American soil, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed by the explosion of a 7,000-pound truck bomb. One- hundred and sixty eight people, including nineteen children, were killed by the blast, and more than five hundred others were injured. Timothy J. McVeigh, an anti-government activitist, was tried, convicted of the bombing and executed on June 11, 2001. But to Americans everywhere, the story has remained a mystery, held hostage by McVeigh's refusal to explain or even discuss the even and his involvement. But prior to his death, he spoke to Lou Michel and Dan Herbeck, two reporters for The Buffalo News in Western New York, where McVeigh was raised.

With this book, the mystery is solved. American Terrorist will change, unmistakeably and permanently our understanding of the crime. In a thoroughly researched book, American Terrorist sheds light on every aspect of McVeigh's life.
