NEW YORK (AP) -

The author of best-sellers about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida is working on a book about terrorists in the U.S.

Crown Publishers announced Monday that CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen has a deal for a definitive book on homegrown terrorism. The book will cover topics including the Boston Marathon bombings and the impact of government surveillance. It's tentatively titled "The United States of Jihad." The release date has yet to be determined.

Bergen's previous works include "The Osama bin Laden I Know," "Holy War Inc." and "The Longest War." His most recent book, "Manhunt," was adapted into an HBO documentary.
