Brian Van Reet’s intense, multilayered story about a U.S. soldier taken captive by jihadists in Baghdad astonishes, for the author has a rare ability to complicate facile war narratives without blurring his firm moral vision. In a competitive field, it’s the finest Iraq War novel yet written by an American.

Reviewed by Nicholas Cannariato:

Emits a palpable heat that at times is almost unbearable in its rapid, deliberative intensity…Succeeds in connecting the unsentimental reality of grinding warfare with the tragic hubris of military aggression, whether the theatre of war be Troy or Baghdad.
