Publisher's Summary

As Khushwant Singh wrote in the preface to the hardbound edition published in 1990 of this true account of Mohanlal Bhaskar's mission to find out about Pakistan's nuclear plans: 'He was betrayed by one of his colleagues, presumbly a double agent, and had to face the music on his own. The interrogation, which was done by the army and police, included torture of the worst kind imaginable. Many of his comrades went insane or ended their own lives. Large portions of his stories describe the methods used in gory and spine-chilling detail but there were also lighter moments with dacoits, prostitutes, pimps and dope smugglers in the same jails....' He witnessed history unfolding from Mianwali jail: '...when Sheikh Mujibur Rehman was brought there, and had his grave dug and then refilled when Bhutto released him to return in truimph to Bangladesh. From his cell he watched Indian bombers and fighters knock out Pakistan's airforce from the skies....'

This Story was told to me by my Father

I was in school when my father told me about Mr. Mohan Lal Bhaskar and his book. As i am weak in hindi, this translation came to me very handy. No one can imagine the things he went through and still maintained his intellect all throughout. The country will always remain indebt to the unsung heros who risk their soul for our country. The translation is very good and it keeps the listener attentive all throughout. thank you!

can't stop once started to listen

out of all the Audiobooks I have on my smartphone, this is the only one I listened in one stretch, the narration was so good that I actually felt as if I am there with him. The author made me walk , see and even feel his life in Pakistan. I can't say more, but the contents of this book will stay in my memories forever, must listen for anyone and everyone

Interesting

The author suffered at the hands of his captors but never gave up hope. A very interesting way of handling the subject. Hope he and his family are by now well established.

Simply great story with beautiful narration.

Seriously even if you don't like stories of spies this is a beautiful narration of every aspect of life of a spy overseas.
I seriously cannot put in words.
it is so beautifully done that you feel the era the air and the view of how beautiful the other part is in regard to scenes and how brutal and how I'll managed it is.
The detailing is awesomely done.
I have a 5 star for the narrator.

Brave Spy....

This Book gives Glimpse of Pakistani Culture, significant influence and interference of army in politics, Conditions in pakistani jail and most important.... our Brave Spy Mr. Mohanlal Bhaskarji and his whole story.
Apart from that, I am sure you will have sympathy for Generous Pakistanis after reading this book and will hate Mr. Morarji desai for sure....

Gripping

Offers a compelling insight into Pakistani life - social and military culture — in the pits. Heard it over two days of driving. Gripping.

Audible has no quality control over performance

The story is of middling interest, immune as we have now become to tales of torture. The last quarter of the book was, to me, the most revealing and interesting with the inside story of Zia-Ul-Haq and related Pak and Indian history of that period.
The narration by Vivek Vijayakumaran is of poor diction, enunciation and pronunciation. It's incomprehensible to me how Audible has seemingly no minimum required standards of quality with regard to spoken English. They must let in anyone who pays the price of entry.

Danger, Armageddon Area

Let's face it, probably one in a thousand Americans can tell you the capital of Pakistan, yet the media tells us that they are the most dangerous country in the world.
This book will show you the espionage that abounds between India and Pakistan. It will show you that supposedly devout Muslims drink and go to Houses of Prostitution, and I found that surprising myself going on in Pakistan. This of course has nothing to do with the poor though, but the elite rich embedded into the culture. Pompous India has no time for Muslims, and here is the crux of the problem. This book will teach you the ins and outs of espionage, but you sense at the end, the Muslims are not at fault. This again is what happens to a country that Britain just dumps after draining them of their wealth, so this book is basically about the the casualties of the once British Empire.

Disappointing

I was looking forward to a gripping story about his training and escapades. It's mainly about his time in prison. That is interesting but I wanted more. I couldn't understand the narrator as he had a very strong accent.
