Reviews

Provides a captivating account of his days inside the early incarnation of the ISIS machine, where he was only kept alive as a financial pawn, and a dramatic tale of hostage negotiation and family sacrifice... Captures an inspiring message about the collective reaction of humans to such brutal trauma.
Puk Damsg rd's unadorned chronicle of Danish photojournalist Daniel Rye's capture, confinement and eventual release delivers a lesson as astringent as medicine: in the modern era of irregular warfare, battlefields are no longer demarcated by flags or trenches but by ideology and memory.
