His captors threatened to execute him if Italy did not immediately withdraw its troops from Afghanistan.

When Italy refused this demand, the driver, twenty-five-year old Sayed Agha, was decapitated before Mastrogiacomos eyes. A video of this horrifying event was shown around the world, and Mastrogiacomo spent the rest of his time in captivity convinced that a similar fate would soon befall him.His jail, however, was not a dark room hidden away in some urban periphery, but a kind of open-air prison: to escape detection, his captors dragged him from village to village, through opium plantations, along dusty roads and over rugged mountains, from one end of Afghanistan to the other.It was a captivity that consisted in a continuous and nerve-racking confrontation with a world that bore no resemblance to that which he had ever known.

Mastrogiacomo draws from his experience not only a hostages tale of captivity but also a story that lies at the heart of the eternal human drama: that of a mans encounter with The Other.As brilliantly crafted as a first-rate suspense novel and with the kind of emotional impact associated with the best literary fiction, Mastrogiacomos story of courage and tenacity in the face of imminent danger is unforgettable.
