It was planted by a Puerto Rican independence group known as the “FALN,” the most active domestic terrorist organization in American history. Shattered Lives, co-authored with Joe Connor, the son of one of those murdered, chronicles the FALN’s decade-long reign of murder and destruction, the hunt for the perpetrators by a group of dedicated FBI agents, and the political maneuvering that led to Presidents Clinton and Obama granting clemency to FALN members.

Resurrecting the Street
This book tells of the regeneration of the U.S. markets, day by day, immediately following 9/11, with a focus on the U.S. Government securities market. The events of 9/11 brought the most important financial market in the world – the one looked to by investors globally for safety in times of trouble – to the brink of paralysis. The crisis was ultimately resolved through the willpower and wisdom of groups of disparate individuals, accompanied by an unprecedented climate of cooperation among fierce competitors that embodied the American spirit at its finest.
