Sample text

More guards have created a perimeter around us. On the first day, no food or water arrives. For eight hours, we lie on the floor and fitfully try to sleep. My stomach aches. I wonder if the lack of food means they plan to kill us. Qari tells us that an Afghan policeman who secretly supports the Taliban spotted me at a checkpoint. He then warned the Taliban we were coming. I curse myself for not covering my face better. In brief exchanges, I learn more about Tahir and Asad. In truth, we are strangers.

Lee and I leave the interview several hours later with the understand­ ing that another set of agents will be assigned to our case in New York City. We are to update the agents if we receive any new information about David from his colleagues. In turn, the agents will keep us posted on any new developments on their end. Calls begin to flood in: David’s literary agent, the editor of The New York Times. The newspaper alerted David’s book publisher about the kid­ napping. David’s agent, in turn, was contacted by his publisher.

It is a gray, cloudy morning. As we drive away, Tahir suggests that we pray for a safe journey. We do. I call Kristen. m. in New York. I am nervous and she can sense it. When she asks me what I’m doing, I panic and respond that I am going to an interview at a ministry in Kabul. I am saving her from worrying, I again tell myself, and allowing her to sleep. I do, in fact, have an interview at a ministry, but it is scheduled for later that day—after the one-hour Taliban interview. Then I will fly to Islamabad in the late af­ ternoon for a week of reporting there.
