A Conversation with Joby Warrick and Elliot Ackerman

    Pulitzer Prize–winning author Joby Warrick presents the unknown story of America’s mission to find and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons. Following Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s sarin gas bombing in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, American intelligence forces launched a race to destroy 1,300 tons of chemical weapons in the midst of a raging civil war. “Red Line” is a classic Joby Warrick true-life thriller: a character-driven narrative with a cast of heroes and villains, including weapons hunters, politicians, doctors, diplomats, and spies. Drawing on astonishing original reporting, Warrick reveals how the United States embarked on a bold adventure to prevent one catastrophe but could not avoid a tragic chain of events that empowered America’s enemies.
