Here’s what you need to know about the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history:The most dangerous woman in AmericaThe most Dangerous WomanIn America is a memoir that chronicles the deadly rampage by a mentally ill man at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016, that killed 49 people and injured more than 50.
The gunman, Omar Mateen, had ties to al-Qaeda and had expressed support for the militant group al-Shabaab.
He had a history of mental illness and had reportedly been under investigation for a year by the FBI and the Justice Department.
His manifesto, titled “The Most Destructive Man Alive,” includes the words “Allah Akbar” and “Allah is the greatest.”
The book is based on interviews with victims and witnesses, which the book describes as a “vast, vast sea of hate” filled with “a toxic stew of paranoia and a lack of empathy.”
The authors say they were “struck by the emotional power of what was being said, and the sheer brutality of the acts that were being committed.”
The book is being published by HarperCollins, and its publisher says the work is based “on extensive interviews with survivors, witnesses, and victims themselves.”
It has been described as a book about “a man who believed he was God’s chosen one, the leader of the universe, who made himself a God.”

The Pulse shooting left 49 people dead and 53 wounded.
The book was published in 2016 by Simon & Schuster.
The book describes Mateen as a troubled young man who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 16 and had been receiving psychiatric treatment since.
In the book, Mateen describes his family as “troubled” and describes the shooting as “a moment in which my life, like so many others, was ripped apart.”
Mateen’s wife, Sitora Yusufiy, also described him as “very religious.”
In the book’s introduction, the authors write that Mateen’s “love for Islam” was “a powerful force” in his life.
They also say that Mateeens “relied on the faith that had helped him survive his struggles with mental illness” and that “the religion of Islam gave him a sense of belonging.”
The authors say Mateen had a “passion for jihad and the killing of nonbelievers” that he carried into his early 20s.
“He was deeply troubled, and he saw the war in Syria as a way to make sense of his life,” the authors say.
“He wanted to fight, and to do so in an Islamic way.”
The author says that after he was killed in a shootout with police, Mateens mother told police he was an angry and “violent man.”
The man who committed the massacre was described by police as Omar Mateens younger brother, Omar Esam, a married father of three and a member of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.
According to court documents, Esam was also a radicalized former Muslim convert who converted to Islam after spending time in prison.
In his manifesto, Mateer wrote that he was “one of the few remaining Muslims in America.”
Mates mother told investigators that her son had been “living in a fantasy world of hate and hatred,” according to court papers.
She said that her younger son was “in love with” her daughter, and that his father was a Muslim who “could never stand being around her.”
