The Death Instinct, by Jed Rubenfeld.

I’m enjoying and appreciating and jotting furiously from the various year-end best book lists that I’m seeing here and there, including this one from Library Journal (reviews.libraryjournal.com).  Somehow I missed Jed Rubenfeld’s delightful, if I can use that term considering the events it tells of, The Death Instinct when it was published earlier this year.  It is the true/fictional story of the (first) “most destructive and deadly terrorist attack” on US soil (drawing fascinating parallels with the more recent one) on September 16, 1920.
