Abduction Kidnapping Books Showing of The Devil's Angels MC - Gunner (The Devil's Angels MC, #1) by. Lola Wright (Goodreads Author) (shelved 2 times as abduction-kidnapping) avg rating — 5, ratings — published Want to Read saving Want to Read.   Steve Hendricks is the author of two works of investigative journalism. ’s The Unquiet Grave is an examination of how the FBI aided and abetted the erosion of American Indian culture in the United cks’s newest book is A Kidnapping in Milan, a nonfiction thriller that exposes the extraordinary rendition of radical imam Abu Omar by the CIA.

  The full story is told in my new book, A Kidnapping in Milan: The CIA on Trial, published yesterday by W. W. Norton. I started working on A Kidnapping in Milan four years ago because I was frustrated that there were no narratives that described the full horror of what our client states were doing to our captives in our offshore dungeons.   And it is described in all of its almost unbearable detail in Steve Hendricks’ “A Kidnapping in Milan: The CIA on Trial. Believe it or not, most of this book is enjoyable.

  Steven Hendricks’s A Kidnapping in Milan: The CIA on Trial details the story of radical imam Abu Omar. Omar, an Egyptian radical who sought political asylum in Italy, was the focus of an investigation by the Milan police force, who, via wiretaps and other forms of surveillance, were building a case against Omar for recruiting a network of Islamist terrorists. A child's references to satanic rituals initiate a custody battle between his divorced mother and his grandmother in this fact-based story.
