  • "Why did a Hercules C130, the plane carrying Pakistan's military dictator General Zia ul Haq, go down on 17 August, 1988? Was it because of: mechanical failure; human error; the CIA's impatience; a blind woman's curse; or the generals not happy with their pension plans. This novel takes one of the subcontinent's mysteries."@en
