Zanghara, South Waziristan August 5, 2009: In a carefully orchestrated midnight attack, US drones zeroed in and killed the dreaded leader of the infamous Tehreek-e-Taliban as he lay with his wife on his father-in-law's terrace. The question is who tipped off the CIA?? BaitullahMehsud, the dreaded leader of the Pakistani Taliban, had grown too big for his boots. His delusions of grandeur, his manic dreams of ruling all of Pakistan, and his brazen and bloody terrorist acts, were making many people uneasy. The US, the ISI, the Karzai Government, the Government of Pakistan, and various splinter groups of the Taliban - all of who had, at one time or the other, partnered with him - now wanted him dead. A riveting, highly-informed conspiracy novel set in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the US, The Eye of the Predator is an arresting account of an unlikely group of men who slept with the enemy in a desperate bid to fight the monster of Pakistan.
