"Joseph Hickman's chilling account about the "suicides" of three young "war on terror" detainees is the final nail in Guantanamo's coffin that should lead to the closure of the detention facility, once and for all. Hickman risked his life and military career investigating the circumstances behind the deaths of these captives and his journey is laid bare in this gripping narrative about his nearly decade-long hunt for the truth. What he found is revelatory and disturbing. By the time you reach the last page of Murder at Camp Delta, you will understand what "Honor Bound to Defend Freedom" means and why, for Hickman, it was more than just a slogan. Murder at Camp Delta is a game changer. It will go down in history as one of the most important books to be written about the war on terror."

"Sgt. Joe Hickman has written a terrific, riveting, and deeply disturbing book. I am shocked by what he reveals. Governments have always tended to suppress embarrassing facts; as the French general staff explained to investigator Col. Picquart during the Dreyfus Affair: "what importance is the innocence of one Jew compared to the reputation of the French Army?" But like Col. Picquart, Sgt. Hickman is compelled by an inner moral code to pursue truth and justice, regardless of the cost to himself. Our country badly needs such men. The truth always matters."
– Thomas Wilner, Counsel of record for Guantanamo detainees before the U.S. Supreme Court in Rasul v. Bush and in Boumediene v. Bush

“If the Seton Hall report on Camp Delta was a seed, and Horton’s article for Harper’s a sapling, then Murder at Camp Delta is the tree in full bloom, its branches reaching into the spooky shadows of the national security apparatus.”
“This is an important chronicle of the disillusionment of a longtime American soldier…If America is to regain its honor, the truth about Guantánamo must be told, and for this reason Joseph Hickman is, as he says in the opening sentence of his necessary book, a "patriotic American."
“Murder at Camp Delta is a book of, by, and for true believers in patriotism and militarism.”
"Compelling... It's clear from his version of ... that there’s still plenty we don’t know about Guantanamo, a prison in which horrifying acts were carried out in the name of every American citizen."
