One of the most terrifying stories of our time: unforgettable for its individuality, its horror, and its lesson about a man and a woman's commitment to understanding the world - and to each other. Now a Paramount feature film starring Angelina Jolie and produced by Brad Pitt.

The tragic murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is well known. Why he was in Karachi; how he saw his role as an international journalist; why he was singled out for kidnapping; and where the incredible search effort led - are the subject of Mariane Pearl's book. A journalist in her own right, Mariane is, as was her husband, profoundly committed to the idea that a more informed public makes for a better world, and to the idea that risks are taken to uncover a story. A superb writer, she presents a truly illuminating tale - including her own crucial role in the investigative team, where she was responsible for negotiating unprecedented cooperation between the FBI and Pakistani intelligence and able to forge alliances with an array of people.
A Mighty Heart is an extraordinary book - a fitting tribute to a dedicated reporter.
