According to Time magazine, Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf holds 'the world's most dangerous job'. He has twice come within inches of assassination.

His forces have caught over members of Al Qaeda, yet many others remain at large and active, including Osama bin Laden and Ayman Al Zawahiri. Long locked in a deadly embrace with its nuclear neighbour India, Pakistan has twice come close to full-scale war since it first exploded a nuclear bomb in As President Musharraf struggles for the security and political future of his nation, the stakes could not be higher for the world at large.

It is unprecedented for a sitting head of state to write a memoir as revelatory, detailed and gripping as In the Line of Fire. Here, for the first time, readers can get a first-hand view of the war on terror in its central theatre.

President Musharraf details the manhunts for Bin Laden and Zawahiri, and their top lieutenants, complete with harrowing cat-and-mouse games, informants, interceptions, and bloody firefights. He tells the stories of the near-miss assassination attempts not only against himself, but against Shaukut Aziz later elected Prime Minister and one of his top army officers, and the fatal abduction and beheading of the US journalist Daniel Pearl - as well as the investigations that uncovered the perpetrators.

He details the army's mountain operations that have swept several valleys clean, and he talks about the areas of North Waziristan where Al Qaeda is still operating.

Another tense,taut chapter deals with the drama of the coup staged in October when he was aboard an aircraft which was refused landing permission. There is a blow by blow account of how the army swung into action to oust Nawaz Sharif. All of this reads like a thriller.

He tries to justify his biggest blunder, the Kargil conflict of The rest of the book,however,is fairly disappointing. Numerous terrorist incidents are described in too much detail,and the book starts to feel like a police procedural.

A lot of space is devoted to the policies of his government. This is a book of two halves,one very interesting and the rest fairly dull.
