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!

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.

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
