The Unabomber was a lone-wolf terrorist who carried out fourteen bombings that left three people dead and another twenty-three injured. A cunning genius, he dodged his FBI pursuers for nearly two decades, terrifying Americans from coast to coast.

There the FBI captured Theodore J. Kaczynski, engineer fo the most notorious bombing spree in U.S. history.

This is the story of the FBI's investigation of the Unabomber and the agent who brought him to justice.
