Summary "Tracks the parallel lives of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearlman and jihadi Omar Sheikh. Both highly educated individuals from privileged backgrounds, one was a humanist who spent most of his career reporting from the Islamic world on a quest to promote cross-cultural understanding; the other was a militant who ultimately chose a deeply violent path. After 9/11, their paths crossed in Pakistan, with tragic consequences" -- Container.
