In 2002 Australia was rocked by the terrorist bombings in Bali that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians. Then, only 3 years later, another bombing in Bali claimed the lives of a further 20 people and injured 100 others. Who was behind the bombings and how could they be stopped? In Defeating Terror, former Australian Federal Police agent David Craig draws on his first-hand involvement to tell the true story of the hunt for the Bali bombers. Craig takes us behind the front-line fight, exposing the strengths, fears and vulnerabilities of both sides as they painstakingly piece together the backgrounds of the terrorists, their radicalisation and their bomb-making abilities and methods of evasion. Defeating Terror is a fast-paced and riveting account of the hunt for the masterminds behind the Bali bombings. In a real-life wild-west shoot out, when the terrorists are finally cornered, thousands of bullets are exchanged and 11 bombs are thrown at police. The terrorist mastermind is killed, but is his organisation dead? DAVID CRAIG was a senior officer in the Australian Federal Police. He has trained with international forces including the FBI and served in various countries including Indonesia, East Timor and Afghanistan.
