In 2002 Australia was rocked by the terrorist bombings in Bali that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians. Then, in 2005 the country was rocked again by another bombing that claimed the lives of a further 20 people and injured 100 others.

In Defeating Terror, former Australian Federal Police agent, David Craig, draws on his first-hand experience to tell the true story behind the terrorists who instigated the Bali bombings. Craig takes us behind the scenes of the joint global investigations, that painstakingly pieced together the evidence to finally understand who the bombers were and how they could be tracked down. This is an event that remains very fresh in the minds of Australians, and Defeating Terror finally puts together the whole of its back story. Craig takes us behind the front-line fight, exposing the strengths, fears and vulnerabilities of both sides and showing us what really happened behind the headlines.
