Black Flags is well-written, marked by a journalist’s preference for fact and neutrality over drama.

Kirkus Reviews : Black Flags (September 30, 2015)

Warrick stops short of offering policy solutions, but he provides a valuable, readable introduction to a pressing international security threat.

In “Black Flags,” Warrick, a reporter for the Washington Post and the author of “The Triple Agent: The al-Qaeda Mole Who Infiltrated the CIA,” draws on more than 200 interviews, many of them with diplomats and intelligence officers, to provide a revealing, riveting and exquisitely detailed account of the life and death of Zarqawi, the improbable terrorist mastermind, and the rise of the movement now known as the Islamic State (also known as ISIS).
