It sounds like the stuff of a fiction thriller: two revolutions, a massacre of unarmed civilians, a civil war, a drug-smuggling highway, brazen corruption schemes, and larger-than-life characters who may be villains... or heroes... or possibly both. This book offers a first-hand account of Central Asia's unfolding history from 2005 onwards.
