BookDescription

For five weeks the world waited for news about Danny Pearl, the Wall StreetJournal reporter who was kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan...And then came the broadcast of his shocking murder. The complete account of his abduction, the intense effort to rescue him, and the aftermath are told here - in astonishing
detail, and with courage and insight - by his surviving wife Mariane.
A Mighty Heart is the unforgettable story of two journalists who fell in love with their work - and with each other. Together, Mariane and Danny Pearl
traveled across the globe, dedicated to journalism that increases the under-standing of international politics and of ethnic and religious conflict. In the end, Danny was
caught in the dangerous fissure where warring cultures, politics,and ideologies collide. A Mighty Heart is both a portrait of a partner-ship built on the ideals of love, truth, and justice and a critical look at the methods and structure of the Al Qaeda network.
