The Deniable Agent: Undercover in Afghanistan by Colin Berry I'm never really sure how to review these things. This is a biography however there are certain things that are obscured for security reasons. So not exactly that good as a source but a very good read. This describes the authors time in Afghanistan recovering weapons that were given to the Afghans by the west in their war with the Soviet union. Berry is double crossed and finds himself in prison in 2002-03. Considering the detainees controversy in Canada the torture this westerner experienced is chilling. Berry writes with wit and sarcasm that had me chuckling a few times.
