Book Details

The Unabomber is the story of the FBI's investigation of Ted Kaczynski, engineer of the most notorious bombing spree in U.S. history, and the agent who helped bring him to justice.
The Unabomber was a lone-wolf terrorist who carried out fourteen bombings that left three people dead and another twenty-three injured. A cunning genius, he dodged his FBI pursuers for nearly two decades, terrifying Americans from coast to coast.

Agent Kathy Puckett, a spy hunter and highly trained psychologist, served as the turning point in the FBI's efforts to understand the mind of the faceless killer. Her insights helped send more than a hundred agents to a remote cabin in the mountains of western Montana on April 3, 1996.

Go behind the scences of some of the FBI's most interesting cases in award-winning journalist Bryan Denson's FBI Files series, featuring the investigations of Russian spy Rick Ames, al-Qaeda member Mohamed Mohamud, and Michael Young's diamong theft ring. Each book includes photographs, a glossary, a note from the author, and other detailed backmatter on the subject of the investigation.

In The News

"This page-turning true-crime narrative takes readers behind the scenes of the detailed work, decision-making, and sometimes luck that go into solving difficult cases. The writing is lively, and the principal players are fully dimensional." - Kirkus

"Denson's well-written, well-researched book (with photographs) engages readers from the beginning and builds suspense as the case hits dead-ends again and again. His lengthy interviews...supply important background and insight into how they solved the case, grounding this true-crime account firmly in facts." - Booklist

"Denson’s text delivers true-crime thrills generally reserved for older readers but packaged here in streamlined content and accessible text, laced with a well-chosen selection of photographs and document reproductions." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The text, pacing, and topic are accessible to reluctant readers, and the back matter features a wide array of resources and additional reading... An enthralling, well-researched introduction to true crime for upper elementary/middle school readers." - School Library Journal
