SRP 2012 REVIEW: This is a hefty book, at more than 900 pages, but this adventure story based on the author's life is gripping and the story will go by quickly. I love the exploration of love and betrayal, violence and crime, and Roberts teaches us that nothing is ever as simple as it may appear. This guy has been through hell and come back - after escaping from a maximum security prison in Australia, the former heroin addict flees to India, where he lives in a slum as a makeshift doctor, then joins the local mafia before heading to Afghanistan to fight in the war against the Russians.
