A former Newsweek and BuzzFeed foreign correspondent now based in Washington at The Atlantic, Giglio spent six years tracking the rise and fall of ISIS. Few western journalists got as close to the extremist organization as Giglio did, and his book is a vivid and often chilling look at an organization whose relentlessness announced a new kind of warfare—and demanded a new kind of retaliation. In immediate, on-the-ground reporting, Giglio takes readers along the Turkey-Syria border with the smugglers of ISIS’s criminal networks, joins the antiquities traders whose stolen artifacts helped fund the group, and talks to human traffickers, ISIS defectors, and local soldiers.
