Kill or Capture: How a Special Operations Task Force Took Down a Notorious al Qaeda Terrorist (Google eBook)
The electrifying true story of the pursuit for the man behind al Qaeda’s suicide bombing campaign in Iraq Kill or Capture is a true-life thriller that tells the story of senior military interrogator Matthew Alexander’s adrenalinefilled, “outside the wire” pursuit of a notorious Syrian mass murderer named Zafar—the leader of al Qaeda in northern Iraq—a killer with the blood of thousands of innocents on his hands. In a breathless thirty-day period, Alexander and a small Special Operations task force brave the hazards of the Iraqi insurgency to conduct dangerous kill-or-capture missions and hunt down a murderer. Kill or Capture immerses readers in the dangerous world of battlefield interrogations as the author and his team climb the ladder of al Qaeda leadership in a series of raids, braving roadside bombs, near death by electrocution and circles within circles of lies.

Review: Kill or Capture: How a Special Operations Task Force Took Down a Notorious al Qaeda TerroristUser Review - Goodreads
Not quite as good as his first book, How To Break A Terrorist, but still a solid effort. I much prefer Alexander's crisp declarative prose to the usual wordy autobiographical meandering.

Overall not bad. The topic is interesting and the writing was solid, but I don't think it was as good as "How to Break a Terrorist". The other book had more tension and this one came off a bit preachy at times. That said the author is solid, and I flew through this book. Read full review
