Storyline

Her friend, doctor Peter Husak, introduces the American Jack Carver to his friend nurse Kate - and it's love on first sight. But when she learns in a dramatic incident that Jack's a CIA agent, she leaves him and marries Husak instead. Together they go into a war area in Nagorny Karabach for a relief organization. When Kate finds out that Husak is willingly cooperating with the KGB, she leaves him and asks Carver, who's about to bring a businessman out of the country, to take her and her baby with him on a dangerous flight.

From the Book
13 October 2013 | by (United States Texas) – See all my reviews

Just read the Book: Lie Down with Lions written by Ken Follett. So this is the movie. Now I have to find it somewhere.

From other reviews it doesn't seem to follow the book as closely which outlines a lot of the Russian war with Afghanistan. But there is certainly enough plot, action, history, romance, deceit, and intrigue to keep you interested. Descriptions of the Afghan countryside, people, tribes and their inner conflict before Osama Ben Laden lets you know that not much has changed. Follett even mentions Bagram Air Force Base which we are using now.

A friend of mine is working in the South of Afghanistan and he says it is truly completely different from the Northern area where the book is set. The book really gives you a picture of what our troops are up against and why it is possibly a futile war, for a lot of reasons.
