2003. The invasion of Iraq has ended and the Americans are celebrating victory. Reporters of all nationalities scramble for stories. Occasionally, Coalition forces are attacked, but always elsewhere, somewhere in the background.
Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the most vicious al Qaeda leader the world has ever seen, is planning the real war. Step-by-step he lays out his plan in a letter to Osama bin Laden: suicide truck bombings; civil war; televised beheadings. He carries out his grand design to perfection, bringing Iraq to its knees, almost singlehandedly transforming the invasion into one of the most brutal conflicts of our time...and he does it all on camera. When Zarqawi is finally ready to reveal himself, who will he choose as his messenger?
Enter Michael Ware. A hard-drinking, hard-running, maverick Australian reporting for American news outlets. The tape Zarqawi gives him, having handpicked Ware by name, sets our correspondent off on an epic voyage as he seeks answers. It is a journey that courses through the deepest recesses of the Iraq war, revealing a darkness lurking in his own heart. A darkness that he never knew was there.
