Summary
On August 19, 2014, the jihadist rebel group known as ISIS uploaded a video to YouTube. Entitled "Message to America," the clip depicted the final moments of American journalist James Foley's life--and the gruesome aftermath of his beheading at the hands of a masked executioner. Foley's murder--and the choreographed killings that would follow--captured the world's attention, and the Islamic State's kidnapping campaign exploded into war. "Hunting Season" is a riveting account of how the world's newest and most powerful terror franchise came to target Western hostages, who was behind it, and why almost no one knew about it until it was too late
Summary
A full-length account that expands on the author's groundbreaking Vanity Fair report investigates the abduction, captivity and execution of American journalist James Foley and dozens of other ISIS hostages as part of a terrorist plot to trigger a full-scale conflict
