As far as Colin Berry's family was concerned, he'd gone to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban to market low-cost modular housing; but the truth was much more complicated. Berry, a former soldier, had been recruited by British intelligence to secretly buy back weapons systems which had been delivered to the Mujahideen during their struggle against the Soviets. Giving riveting insight into the covert world of intelligence, Berry reveals his involvement in reconnaissance missions to remote mountain villages where he was able to see first hand the ravaging effects of decades of warfare. The story culminates in a hotel room shootout that left two Afghans injured and Berry himself seriously wounded. He finally reveals the truth about what happened in the Intercontinental Hotel that night, as well as how he spent nearly a year in a stinking Afghan jail.
