An important if really scary book about what can happen when travel plans go bad -- sometimes because you've done something very stupid (I'm talking to you, drug mules), and sometimes through no fault of your own other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A nice companion book to the far more upbeat "The Adventure of Working Abroad: Hero Tales from the Global Frontier."
