With Canadians Jim Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden and American Tom Fox, Norman Kember spent four months imprisoned in a small room in Baghdad. The team had gone to Iraq as Christian Peacemakers, determined to work for peace in a war-torn country.

In this gripping book, Norman Kember describes his long experiences with the peace movement, and how he slowly came to the view that he should go with other peace advocates to Iraq. He describes in detail his team's four-month ordeal, during which they were imprisoned in a small room and chained together until the fateful day when American Tom Fox was led away by his captors. Later, they learned that he had been killed.

Rescued by British forces after a successful international police effort to discover the hideout, Kember describes the conflicts he and his fellow activists have faced since their return over their opposition to military force and their reluctance to testify at the trials of the men accused of their kidnapping.

This book offers a startling new perspective on the war in Iraq and its many opponents.
