Product Information

An incredible true story of espionage, torture, high politics, sex and murder

"I thought that diplomats like Craig Murray were an extinct breed. A man of the highest principle"
-John Pilger
"An important and well-told story from a frontline on the war of terror"
-"The Spectator"
"The Uzbek people know only one word for Craig Murray: hero"
-Mohammad Salih, Uzbek opposition leader
"Heroic. This darkly comic tale...rings horribly true. It helps explain the moral bankruptcy [of] the Blair government"
-Sir Max Hastings, "Sunday Times," 16 July 2006
"The book is fantastic. It is very, very funny...It also deals with the fact that the reason he is no longer ambassador is that the British Government was using information obtained from torture and he thought that was wrong"
-Michael Winterbottom, Director
"This candid account...looks set to ruffle a few feathers"
"The actions of this brave and principled man have certainly exposed the 'war on terror' for the sick charade that it is"
-"Morning Star"
-"Sunday Express"

Craig Murray joined the Diplomatic Service in 1984 and served in Nigeria, Poland and Ghana before being appointed Ambassador to Uzbekistan. He retired from the Civil Service in 2005 and now works as a writer and broadcaster.
