The parts of this book that more about Anderson's investigation into her father's kidnapping are compelling. Clearly more journalist than memoirist, Anderson is not particularly reflective when relaying the psychological problems she experienced growing up as Terry Anderson's daughter. But her courage in delving deeper into that history is amazing--and very informative--as she returns to Lebanon numerous times to interview Hezebollah figures as well as U.S government officials and other experts on the Middle East and terrorism

I didn't read much of this book, as I couldn't get past her anger and blame she was hurling at her mother. Too much of Miss Anderson's angst, and too little about her father and his ordeal. Of COURSE the daughter suffered from her father being gone for the 1st 7 years of her life. Of course he was vague and distant after he came home. But what else?
