Recruited into the CIA, he experiences personal trauma in Pinochet’s Chile before being assigned to the US Embassy in Pakistan where he confronts his ultimate crisis with US policies. A unique mixture of moving personal story, thriller, revealing account of the internal workings of the CIA, acute political analysis, and a deeply felt and probing discussion of the meaning of loyalty and patriotism. It provides insights into the profoundly tragic nature of the relationship between the USA and Pakistan, making it essential reading for anyone concerned with this volatile venture.
