內容簡介

「至今最全面的綁架故事。」
--《時代雜誌》(Times)

「要了解伊斯蘭國(IS),很少有比Hunting Season要好的書了,James Harkin讓人心碎的深入探訪,24個外國人在敘利亞遭綁架,一個局內人的觀察…。Hunting Season不論在調查、戰爭報導或敘事新聞上,都足以開設高級研習班。對Harkin回不了家的同儕來說,很難想像有比這本書更適合的遺言了。」
--《文學評論》(Literary Review)

2014年8月19日,一個ISIS成員把一段影片上傳到Youtube。這個影片的名稱是《給美國的信息》(Message to America),內容是遭到綁架的美國記者James Foley生命的最後時刻,其結果令人毛骨悚然 – 一個蒙面的處決者揮舞著James Foley被割下的頭顱。謀殺Foley之後,IS還有一連串精心安排的殺戮,引起了全世界的注意,他們的綁架活動在中東戰區瞬間激增。

花了三年時間,從敘利亞戰事衝突的每一個面向的實地報導中,作者力求找出真相 - IS如何以及為什麼把目標放在西方人質上?在悲劇發生前,為什麼在這一小群記者之外的人完全沒有察覺?作者揭露了綁架活動以及IS的發展,如何在一開始就有所關聯。本書對於IS這個最新、最有力量的恐怖聯盟有最完整且徹底的報導,並且探討IS在現代戰爭上又有什麼樣的意義。

On 19 August 2014, a member of the jihadist rebel group known as ISIS uploaded a video to YouTube. Entitled 'Message to America', the clip depicted the final moments of the life of kidnapped American journalist James Foley - and the gruesome aftermath of his beheading at the hands of a masked executioner. Foley's murder - and the other choreographed killings that would follow - captured the world's attention, and Islamic State's campaign of kidnapping exploded into regional war.

Based on three years of on-the-ground reporting from every side of the Syrian conflict, Hunting Season is James Harkin's quest to uncover the truth about how and why Islamic State came to target Western hostages, who was behind it and why almost no one outside a small group of people knew anything about it until it was too late. He reveals how the campaign of kidnapping and the development of Islamic State were joined at the hip from the beginning. The book is an utterly absorbing account of the world's newest and most powerful terror franchise and what it means for modern war.
