Black Friday : The True Story of the Bombay Bomb Blasts (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.200

The first compelling account of the biggest terrorist attack on an Indian city.

On the afternoon of 12 March 1993, a series of explosions cut a swathe through Bombay, spreading terror and destruction over a period of two hours. Starting from the landmark Bombay Stock Exchange in the south of the city during the crowded lunch hour, the blasts extended all the way across to Centaur Hotel, Juhu, in the north. The toll: 257 killed or missing, 713 injured, and a city in shambles.

In Black Friday, S. Hussain Zaidi takes us into the heart of the conspiracy and the massive investigation that ensued. The product of four years of meticulous research, the book gives chilling insights into the criminal mind as revealed in Zaidi' s interviews with the close associates of some of India's most notorious namesDawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, among others and reveals the true dimensions of the macabre plan that spanned several countries and had been months in the making.

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. Today, as terrorist attacks on Indian cities become more frequent, this heroism is something we might all be called upon to emulate

Great Work

Dear friends, I saw the book and read the reviews given by other friends. A bit of eagerness raised in me to know about the actual things happened on Friday the 12th March 1993 in Bombay. All of us might have read articles in newspapers and leading magazines. But this book I tell you will give a better hands on information when compared to those newspapers and magazines. Mr. S.

Dear friends, I saw the book and read the reviews given by other friends. A bit of eagerness raised in me to know about the actual things happened on Friday the 12th March 1993 in Bombay. All of us might have read articles in newspapers and leading magazines. But this book I tell you will give a better hands on information when compared to those newspapers and magazines. Mr. S. Hussain Zaidi, did a great work to bring in light the untold truth. The initial pages of the book details about the bomb blast and the disaster and panic it created among the people. The next few chapters gives in detail about the way the attack was planned, the way they trained the people in Pakistan to make the attack in Bombay and the people responsible for the blast. The remaining section details about the police investigations and their spectacular achievement of getting the lead in 48 hours, a great speed when compared to any of the police force around the world. The book is not a fiction, but it has got the momentum and speed. The book is full of facts and evidences from various sources and ultimately it makes an interesting read and worth spending.

Black Friday with black intentions

A book which is very rare to come across on the sad incidents happened during 90's. The author took lot of pain and efforts to come out with this gem. The book will teach everybody a lesson that revenge always takes the livies of the innnocent for their selfish motives.

Black Friday - Its better than the movie

I have just read the book after 3-4 years of watching the movie. Zaidi's work is brilliant. The way he has portrayed the stories, will definitely put you through all what actually had been faced by them. The book is full of facts and evidences from various sources and ultimately it makes an interesting read.

Better read police charge-sheet instead of wasting money on this book

I bought this book to read something which I didn't know through police or media, something which a researchers could bring forth. To know something which is accused's version and corroborated with circumstances, but was utterly disappointed to read that this book is entirely based upon police sources. In that case, what is the point in reading this book? Just read media reports which are based on police charge-sheet.
