|Beautiful written. Adam Lebor interest in the United Nations began in the early 1990s, when he discovered the Yugoslav wars as a journalist. Adam welcomes feedback from readers and replies to every e-mail. The book opens up Northern Syria. He dreams of death. The pistol’s muzzle, warm and heavy against the back of his neck. The sweet reek of cordite. A millisecond of agony. Oblivion . The blindfold was ripped from his head.
