On the afternoon of 12 March 1993, a series of explosions cut a swathe of terror and destruction through Bombay. The toll - 257 killed or missing, 713 injured and a city in a shambles. In Black Friday, S. Hussain Zaidi takes us into the heart of the conspiracy which spanned several countries and the massive investigation that ensued. A product of four years of meticulous research, the book gives chilling insights into the criminal mind, through interviews with close associates of Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, among others. The characters we meet are compelling-the terrorists, the corrupt law enforcement agents who abetted the plot, the investigators who would stop at nothing and above all, the people of Bombay of whose resilient spirit this book is a celebration.
