The case of an Afghan taxi driver beaten to death in 2002 while in U.S. military custody forms the heart of this examination of the abuses committed during the detainment and interrogation of political prisoners.

When New York Times reporter Carlotta Gall investigates the death of cab driver Dilawar--officially declared by the military to be from natural causes--she uncovers incontrovertible evidence to the contrary.
