Narrator Sunil Malhotra reads this dramatic audiobook, a Pulitzer Prize winner, with a reportorial style, deftly handling the tongue-twisting Middle Eastern names. This approach allows him to illuminate the foundations of the most dangerous terror organization on the planet--known in the West as ISIS. His measured delivery lets the story tell itself, with all its horrific facts. This audiobook closely follows the course of jihadist terror since 9/11, focusing on the past five years. The listener comes away with the ISIS origins story (bombings, beheadings, and betrayals) leavened with fascinating profiles of its prime movers--terrorists like Abu Mussab al Zarqawi and Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi; regional power brokers like Jordan's King Abdullah II and Syria's Bahsar al-Assad; and important Americans like CIA operative Nada Bakos and diplomat Robert S. Ford. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
