The daughter of Turkish and Moroccan parents, Mekhennet grew up in Germany and now covers radical Islamic sects for The Washington Post. Her memoir interweaves her experience on the edge of two cultures, a position which has both compelled her to discover “what is in the minds of these young jihadists, and how can we understand and defuse it?” and given her unparalleled access to terrorist operatives. Mekhennet, named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum, broke the story of the ISIS executioner, Jihadi John. Her account crackles with tense border crossings, encounters with intelligence agents, and secretive meetings with members of the inner circles of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and ISIS.
