Siege: An American Tragedy delves into the uprising that shocked the world—the January 6, 2021 storming of the US Capitol by insurrectionists bent on keeping President Donald J. Trump in power.
Unlike other books, which have focused primarily on the actions of the defeated president and those close to him, Siege vividly recounts the experiences of those trapped inside the Capitol on January 6, 2021—their terror and their courage—and the selflessness of the police officers who risked their lives to save them. Siege also explores the personal histories and motivations of several of the Capitol’s invaders.
Meticulously reconstructed from exclusive interviews, congressional testimony, videos, court documents, FBI affidavits, transcripts, and reported text, Siege often reads like heart-pounding fiction. But it happened. Much of it, right before our eyes. And, as the final chapter of the book demonstrates, if we fail to learn from the events that led to it, there will be a next time. And we might not be so lucky.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My goal in writing Siege was to show the human side of the January 6, 2021, US Capitol insurrection. Plenty of other authors of January 6th-related books were writing the inside story of the people in power. I wanted to tell the inside story of the people they hurt. While I also cover what led to the siege, and its aftermath, and delve into the biographies and motives of some of the rioters, my focus is on the people trapped in the Capitol, and the cops who bravely fought on, despite being outrageously outnumbered.
