In Surprise, Kill, Vanish, Pulitzer Prize–finalist Annie Jacobsen explores the inner workings of this secret paramilitary unit through a series of in-person interviews to reveal a long history of highly classified and morally questionable hostage rescues, infiltrations, and assassinations. Town Hall, $5
