This book gives an extremly detailed account of those unprecented events. Accroding to this book, the worst things about the dentention of Sandline commander, Lieutenant Colonel Tim Spicer, by the PNG military, was that he missed the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens. Bad Show! This book reads like a thriller.
