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.
