Back cover text:

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.


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
