On 26 November 2008, India came under a series of horrific terrorist attacks which killed more than 150 people, and injured hundreds more. Scottish banker Roger Hunt was staying at the Oberoi Trident Hotel in Mumbai and found himself caught up in the siege. Trapped in his hotel room, defenceless against the suicidal terrorists killing people in cold blood, Roger was forced to rely on his instinct.

This account of a terrifying ordeal is at once poignant, gripping and captivating in its raw, honest narration of an ordinary man thrown into the path of danger and pushed to the limit in his struggle for survival.

Author Bio

Roger Hunt is from the North East of Scotland and has spent the majority of his career working in management positions within the Royal Bank of Scotland. In 2008 Roger was caught up in the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and knows just how miraculous it was that he came out of the flame-swept Oberoi Trident Hotel alive. Roger left RBS to join the Scottish Prison Service, where he was HR Manager for HMP Peterhead and HMP Aberdeen for almost two years. He currently works for British Airport Authority (BAA) as Head of Human Resources based in Aberdeen airport. Following the attacks, Roger has shared some of his experiences live on STV's The Hour, spoken at Grampian Police's Annual Conference and been regularly involved in activities supporting Counter Terrorism. Roger lives in Macduff with his wife and three children. Be Silent or Be Killed is his first book.

Reviews

Roger Hunt had just finished dinner in Mumbai's five-star Oberoi Hotel when a waitress tried tempting him with the desserts on offer. But he decided against another course. It was the first of a series of decisions that would save his life, as the restaurant was strafed with machine gun fire just a few minutes later. DAILY RECORD
