American Ambassador Diego Asencio bravely reconstructs his 61 days of captivity in Bogota, Colombia. The siege takes place at the Dominican Republic Embassy and is carried out by Colombia's revolutionary M19 guerrilla organization. This book is a rare look at how the captive diplomats played a large role in securing freedom. It is also testimony that, given time and effort, the honest practice of conflict resolution can bring positive results. It is a small miracle that only one person died during this epic takeover. Much credit must be given to the diplomats in captivity. Ambassador Asencio is a polished writer and does an outstanding job of objectively describing the highs and lows of his days as a hostage.
