Journey Of Life

He started working in a supermarket, a jewelry shop, and a charity shop after leaving school. While working as an investigative writer, Reeve began studying the 1993 World Trade Center bombing just days after the attack. His research formed the basis for a book, The New Jackals: Ramzi Yousef, Osama bin Laden and the future of terrorism, published in the UK and USA in 1998. The New Jackals was the first book on bin Laden.

In addition, Reeve is the New York Times’ best-selling author of The New Jackals (1998), One Day in September (2000), and Tropic of Capricorn (2007). He has received a One World Broadcasting Trust Award and the 2012 Ness Award from the Royal Geographical Society.

Likewise, one day in September was published in 2000 and deals with the Munich massacre and subsequent events like the hijacking of Lufthansa Flight 615 and the covert Israeli retaliation operation dubbed Wrath of God.

Moreover, the book outlines the siege and the massacre during the 1972 Summer Olympics, in which 11 Israeli athletes and officials were murdered by the Palestinian group Black September, and also focuses on the aftermath. The book expands on a documentary film of the same name, directed by Kevin Macdonald, which won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature in 2000.

Similarly, after the attacks of 11 September 2001, Reeve began making travel documentaries for the BBC. Tom Hall, the travel editor for Lonely Planet publications, has described Reeve’s travel documentaries as “the best travel television programs of the past five years”.
