7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By R. Butt on 12 Sept. 2007
Format: Hardcover
Loved it!! The book is a play and not in narrative format and it is this aspect that makes it a very fast moving story. The tension and suspense is gradually built up right through to the finale and the climax is brilliant albeit tragic.

There is also some humour in there and the scene where Bhutto gives his opinion on LBJ had me on the floor. It was reminiscent of the "dhobi's itch" incident from the book Clash of Fundamentalisms by the same author.

The only criticism I have is that the book is too short. It is no more than a two hour leisurely read and in this respect it sort of leaves you wanting more.

Format: Hardcover
This is fantastic story and commentary on Pakistani politics it is ultimately allows you to understand why Pakistan is in the state it is to today and how different it might have been under a progressive social democratic movement. I am not a the biggest fan of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but I am big believer in the Ideology he proposed and one that would work across all nations. This book without mention of the current situation in Pakistan and with Al-Qaeda will allow you to understand the role of the US government help in bringing about its own creation of the WAR ON TERROR.

So please read this Book especially if your are a Pakistani.

A must for the pages of history! 19 May 2010
By AHK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Amazing book!. Stretched over more than a 100 short scenes of screenplay the books tells the 'behind-the-scenes' tale of the Bhutto-Zia face-off between 1977-1979 in Pakistan. The book as it seems is very close to what one would expect to have actually happened behind close doors. None-the-less, it's one of those stories which will be read for decades to come to revisit the life of the fist democratic Prime Minister of Pakistan. Zia is irrelevant.
Interesting!!!! 27 Sept. 2010

Must read for anyone who wants to learn that how easily few Generals can overthrow a democratic government.

A Master Piece 22 Jan. 2009
By Freezing Point - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a friend who, somehow, justified dictatorship in Pakistan. After reading this book, he admitted that he did not know enough to make that claim.
This is very-well written book.
