As Pakistan teeters on the brink of the abyss, Zahid Hussain draws on his unparallelled access and sources amongst the intelligence services, the jiahdi networks, and those surrounding President Musharraf to find out what's going on behind the scenes in this turbulent country, on whose fate the security of the whole world hangs. Does the country's fearsome intelligence agency, the ISI know where Bin Laden is? Are they helping the Taliban? Why didn't Musharraf stamp out radicalism as he promised? Did he mean it, when he pledged his support to America? Does he have the strength to hang on to power? What is his real relationship with Benazir Bhutto? Hussain takes us on a journey from the mountain passes of Waziristan to the officers mess tables in Rawalpindi to the sectarian madrassas of the Punjab to paint an unforgettable portrait of a country in crisis.
