Editorial Reviews


"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
